Making sweet bunnies and chicks is child's play. Devouring the cookies is a tasty pleasure for all.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Decorating Decors yellow, pink and purple sugars
Red string licorice-1 bag
Miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits-1 bag

1. Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, melted butter, egg and flour until soft dough forms.
2. For 12 chicks: Shape dough into 12 (1-inch) balls for bodies and 12 (1/2-inch) balls for heads. Roll balls in yellow sugar. On ungreased cookie sheet, arrange small balls on tops of large balls to look like chicks. In bottom of each large ball, place licorice pieces for legs. On each small ball, place 1 baking bit for eye. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately place candy corn on head of each for beak. Cool 1 minute; remove to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
3. For 12 bunnies: Reseve 1/4 cup dough. Shape remaining dough into 12 (1-inch) balls for heads. Roll balls in pink or purple sugar. On ungreased cookie sheet, for each bunny, place 1 ball and flatten slighty. With reserved dough, shape bunny ears and cheeks and roll in sugar as desired; arrange on each cookie. Place 2 baking bits on each face for eyes and 1 baking bit for nose. Place white candy sprinkles in cheeks for whiskers. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
