Bunny Butt Cookies Recipe
You can bake your favorite sugar cookie recipe in the oven, or if you’re short on time, you can use refrigerated sugar cookie dough with circle cookie cutters, or even store-bought cookies. You can find perfectly baked cookie slices in the bakery section of any grocery store.
Cookies – sugar cookies, butter cookies, store-bought cookies, etc.
Frosting – white and pink (or white frosting with pink food color)
Marshmallow – traditional size
Sprinkles – pastel colored sanding sugar
Frosting knife or butter knife
Frosting bag or zip-top baggie
Sanding sugar is a crystal-like sugar sprinkle topping. What I love about this kind of candy sprinkles is that they have a slight shimmer or glittery look on top of the frosting. The pastel colors are just perfect for Easter!
Begin by pouring the sanding sugar onto separate plates. Then, using a butter knife or frosting knife, spread a large circle of white icing on top of the cookies.
Next, gently press the frosted side of the cookies into the sprinkles. Kids are SO good at this job! Place the frosted and sprinkled cookies onto parchment paper, cookie sheets, or paper towels.
Put a few scoops of pink frosting in the corner of a zip-top baggie. Using kitchen scissors (scissors use with food), cut the tip of the baggie to create a homemade frosting bag.
Using the kitchen scissors again, cut the regular size marshmallows in half. The bunny feet are made with marshmallow halves.
Using the pink frosting bag, paint little bunny feet on the non-stick side of the marshmallow halves. Then, place an additional dot of frosting on the sticky side of the marshmallow half. Place bunny feet onto the bottom of the cookies.
Finally, put a little bit of the pink frosting on the bottom of the mini marshmallows and press the bunny’s tail to the center of each cookie. The frosting acts like a light glue to keep the paws and tail in place.
Bunny cookies are a fun weekend project to make with your kids. These bunny butt cookies make the perfect quick activity for Easter. Since they are so easy to make, it is a great springtime project. Get creative with the colors and decorations and, most importantly, have fun!
