Candy Dipped Marshmallow Bunnies for Easter


Although we just got about 2 feet of snow dumped on us from all the Nor'easters the past couple of weeks it actually feels like Spring is around the corner as we have had some bright and sunny days lately.  

Plus with daylight savings back in effect, it's staying light longer which is always nice.  I hate leaving for work when it's still dark outside and getting home when it's already dark!  


Making some cute bunnies have been on the "to do" list and since we were snowed in one of the weekends it seemed like a good time to do some marshmallow dipping!


Anything in many or rainbow colors gets me every time, like these fruit flavored marshmallows I found in my local food store.


I have melting candy wafers in almost every color so I melted up a bunch and got to dipping!


Bunny ears where made ahead of time by adding some of the melted candy to a zip lock bag, snipping an end and pipping "ears" onto parchment.  Once they are hardened (only takes about 5-10 minutes) you can pick them up and add to the top of each dipped marshmallow.  Do this while the candy is still wet.  After a minute or so the ears should stand up on their own.

Use white vanilla melted candy (or white chocolate) to add to the top of each bunny around the ears.  Before it hardens add your favorite sprinkles - I used rainbow sugar sprinkles.


And because I love those popular unicorn cakes - I did similar faces for these bunnies! I just dipped a paint brush (I only use for food) into some black food gel and paint the closed eyes with lashes.  You could use an edible food writer but I find they don't work as well on candy melt coated stuff.


I was going to use cute mini heart sprinkles as bunny noses but alas did not have any so went with pastel colored non-pareil sprinkles for a button nose.  These are cuter than the heart sprinkles!


Paint on some more melted candy for the ear detail.

And don't forget the cotton tail! (more melted white candy)


Oh and check it out if you add them to cupcakes they look like little bunny ballerinas!


Cutie McCuterson!


I love when you bite inside you see the pastel color marshmallow too! 

These little bunnies are perfect Easter baskets or to welcome Spring back! 

What's on your Spring to do list??
