    What I'd really like to have is the recipe for the chocolate rolled cookies. :D

    When marbleizing the cookies, they look great even if they aren't perfect. I gave my 3, 6, 8, and 10 year old boys toothpicks and they did all the decorating. They preferred the marbleizing to squirting on the frosting, so I frosted them and then they took over. The bunnies were gorgeous and we shared one with each guest at Easter as well as the boys' teachers. Beautiful.
