She got this recipe from a friend several years ago and made the bees for her niece’s 8th birthday as a surprise and they went over big time! She also made them into bunnies by using the almonds as ears instead of wings. The bunnies make an adorable Easter treat.

Wendy doubles the recipe because everyone loves them!

*Wendy uses black gel icing, but you could also melt chocolate to pipe stripes and eyes.
