Bunny Hello Kitty Onigiri

Today I had "too much time on my hands" and set out to try a new technique.  I wanted to make stuffed onigiri to match my Hello Kitty Easter treat container.  In case you have no idea what onigiri is it is a rice ball.

Top Left:  Applesauce with flower sprinkles.

Top Right:  Annie's chocolate and cinnamon graham crackers (they are bunny shaped).  On top is half of the bunny HK treat container.  I originally planned to put the crackers in the container, however, the container is too fat and I was unable to close the lid.

Bottom:  Two bunny Hello Kitty onigiri (rice balls) with black beans stuffed in the middle.  There is also orange and yellow sweet pepper rings.

So, I thought I was being genius and decided I would use the treat containers as the rice mold.  Not genius.  There is a reason why they make rice molds the way they do....to easily remove the rice of course!  Lets just say it was quite a challenge to ease the onigiri out of the treat container.  Next time I will just use my bunny rice mold!  I decorated the onigiri with a paint brush and food coloring gel.
