Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate two to 24 hours. On lightly floured surface, divide dough into 15 pieces. Roll each into a 20" rope. Divide each rope into: one 12" (body), one 5" (head), and three 1" (ears and tail) strips. Coil pieces to make body and head; attach ears and tail to head and body. Place bunnies on baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, 20 minutes. Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Meanwhile to prepare glaze, combine remaining honey and margarine in a saucepan until margarine has melted. Brush bunnies with glaze while warm.
