Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: bunny cookies, easter cookies
Yield: 50 cookies
Calories: 73 kcal
Ingredients
  • 50 vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1 recipe Piping Marshmallow
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Pink sanding sugar
  • ½ cup white sanding sugar
  • 6 oz each yellow and white chocolate coating
  • Pink and yellow jimmy sprinkles
  • Round pastel sprinkles orange color separated for use
  • 1 oz dark chocolate melted
*Piping Marshmallow*
  • 1 pkg unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
Instructions
  1. Arrange cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet. Transfer the prepared Piping Marshmallow to an extra-large piping bag fitted with a ½-inch plain tip or coupler. Working quickly, pipe a mound, about 1 inch high, on each cookie. Use a damp finger to tap down the pointed tip. Let stand until firm and set, at least 30 min or up to 1 hr.

  2. Make bunny ears and tails: Cut mini marshmallows in half crosswise for tails. Cut more mini marshmallows in half diagonally lengthwise, then dip cut sides in pink sugar for ears.

  3. Spread white sanding sugar in a shallow dish and set aside. Melt yellow and white chocolate coatings separately in small bowls. Working with one cookie at a time, hold cookie and dip marshmallow tip inthe coating. Place cookie-side down on the sanding sugar. Before coating sets, add marshmallow tail and ears, and a sprinkle nose to the bunnies. Add yellow sprinkle feathers and orange sprinkle beaks to the chicks. (If coating gets too thick, remelt it.) Transfer cookies to a tray.

  4. Chill until coating is set, 15 min. Use a toothpick dipped in the melted dark chocolate to dab eyes on cookies (or transfer the chocolate to a piping bag with a #2 plain tip). Store cookies for up to 3 days.

For Piping Marshmallow
  1. In a large mixer bowl sprinkle gelatin over ⅓ cup cold water and let stand until softened, about 5 min. Meanwhile in a small saucepan combine sugar and ¼ water. Stir over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Using a pastry brush dipped in water, brush down sugar crystals on inside of pan. Place a candy thermometer into mixtre. Boil (do not stir) until syrup registers 238°F (soft-ball stage).
  2. Pour hot syrup into mixer bowl with gelatin. Whip mixture on medium low with the whisk attachment until slightly cooled, about 5 min. Increase speed to medium high and whip to soft peaks, about 12 min. Transfer to a large piping bag and use immediately. Makes 3½ cups
