Chocolate Bunny Butts
March 31, 2013: Easter
As a reward for surviving Lent (and giving up chocolate for 40 days), Islander gets a chocolate bunny from Highlander as an Easter gift. Whether it is a hollow or solid candy bunny (she likes the latter better!), Islander can indulge in all that chocolate goodness after sacrificing sweets for a few weeks.
As an alternative to chocolate bunnies, Chocolate Bunny Butts are a differently delicious dessert made with deviled food cookies, miniature marshmallows and melted chocolate. They look especially cute with colorful candy eggs—and they are quick and easy to make.
Eat an Easter fun food and have a Chocolate Bunny Butt.
Hoppy Happy Easter from HI Cookery!
(Inspired by Hungry Happenings)
- Chocolate-covered round cookies (such as Nabisco brand Snackwell’s devil’s food cookies)
- Miniature marshmallows
- Dark chocolate, melted (semi-sweet chocolate chips or confectioner’s chocolate/candy melts)
Place the bunny head pattern on a cookie sheet. Lay waxed paper over it. Melt the chocolate according to the package directions. Cool slightly.
Flatten a miniature marshmallow. Dip one flat side in the melted chocolate. Attach it to the cookie. Fill with melted chocolate a pastry bag outfitted with a round decorating tip (or fill a plastic bag and snip off a small hole in the corner). Carefully trace the bunny head pattern with the melted chocolate leaving a small tab at the end.
Place in the refrigerator to cool and harden the chocolate. Carefully peel off the bunny heads from the waxed paper. Use the remaining melted chocolate to attach the cookie to the head. Refrigerate to set the chocolate. Arrange the dessert on a platter and serve.
