Marshmallow Cottontails on a Stick -- Sweet, Simple & Fun Easter Recipe


Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hopping down the Bunny Trail
Hippity, Hoppity Easter's on its way

Two of my favorite and most nostalgic Easter sweets are chocolate covered marshmallow bunnies and Peeps®.   So, my girls and I decided to combine the two classics, resulting in:


COTTONTAILS ON A STICK
These sweet bunny silhouettes
are so simple to make and taste incredible!


Here's all you need:

Marshmallow Peeps® Bunnies
Lollipop Sticks 
(found in the cake decorating aisle of most craft stores)
Candy melts, bark or tempered Couverture Chocolate
Mini marshmallows

Step 1:  Line a baking sheet or tray with wax paper (no need to use expensive parchment)

Step 2:  Prep your Peeps® by inserting a stick as far as it will go without coming up through the ears.

Step 3:  Prep mini marshmallows by trimming off 1/3 with scissors.  Keep the larger pieces and discard the trimmings.


Step 4:  Melt your chocolate.

Step 5:  Dip bunny into melted chocolate.  Tap off excess chocolate into the chocolate bowl.  Set on wax paper lined tray.  Add a marshmallow cottontail.  Repeat.  


Step 6:  When tray of chocolate dipped bunnies is complete, refrigerate for a few minutes to help chocolate set.

  7. jenn, first, oh my word. these are so great! though that chocolate might not make it onto the peeps in my house. secondly, just wanted to say im a little dazzled that you stopped by quiverfull. i love your site, especially the idea behind storybook neverland. books have shaped my life so much, and i appreciate each one (even the ones i don't love so much) in such an intense (and maybe a little bit odd) way. i'm working on a children's book myself and the amount and level of work and passion and creativity that is put into any kind of literature is worthy of our admiration and respect. people in our circles talk a lot about going 'handmade only' and it occurred to me the other day that a book is the ultimate handmade product. Even beyond handmade, it is mind-made. and the enduring nature of books allows us to 'know' authors and epochs and ideas and worldviews of every kind. it's like an ageless World Wide Web of human thought and endeavor. We can connect with people not only all over the globe, but through times and centuries and the creation and fall of worlds... it's amazing. which is why each one is a treasure. and when we lose them, we're erasing a little bit of humanity. ... aaaaaand... wow. evidently, i feel strongly about this. :)sorry for the soapbox, and i'm so glad to meet a kindred spirit.

  10. Peeps are one of my favorite things about Easter (although who am I kidding - they make them for nearly all the holidays now, so maybe Peeps are just one of my favorite things. Anyways...) This is a brilliant idea.
