These Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Bunnies will disappear in a hurry when you make them for Easter. Kids of all ages can’t resist a fun holiday treat on a colored stick.
I know! It’s the oddest thing to be in love with, but those eyes just crack me up!!! I can’t stop thinking of cute ways to use them for each holiday because they are just too fun.
That $5 jar of candy eyes was one of the best purchases I have ever made. True story.
A few weeks I bought a package of bunny Peeps and some dark chocolate melts to make a batch of chocolate covered bunnies.
Dark chocolate is a favorite around here, but feel free to use milk chocolate if you prefer that more. White chocolate bunnies would be super cute too!
Pink sprinkled ears, candy noses, and chocolate whiskers along with the candy eyes make these bunny desserts extra adorable. Of course, anything on a stick is automatically 10 times cuter. Am I right?
How to make Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Bunnies:
- Melt your chocolate melts according to the package directions.
- Gently push a straw into the bunny bottom and then spoon chocolate over the entire bunny. Be very careful that your chocolate is warm enough for dipping, but not hot enough to melt the marshmallow bunnies.
- Lay them on a wax paper lined tray to dry.
- Use a toothpick to add a dab of chocolate on the bunny face where you want to place the eyes and nose. The little candy pearls are the perfect size for a bunny nose.
- Gently spread a layer of chocolate with your toothpick over the ears. Quickly sprinkle on the pink colored sugar!!!
- Dip the toothpick in the chocolate again and draw on little whiskers for each bunny face.
You can also use half a mini marshmallow for a tail if you want to change up the bunnies a little bit. Skip the face and just add a dab of chocolate on the bunny butt and place half a miniature marshmallow on top of the wet chocolate.
They are almost too cute to eat. Almost..
Our kids couldn’t wait to get their hands on these chocolate bunnies and start munching on the ears. Why is it that everyone always starts with the bunny ears?
Fill a jar with bright colored Sixlets (or M&M’s) and push the straws into it for a pretty and tasty centerpiece to display on your Easter dinner table.
Be prepared for these to disappear quickly though! I highly suggest making extras.
Lots of extras because everyone will be grabbing more than one chocolate Easter bunny at a time.
