I created these adorable marshmallow Easter bunnies last year and loved them so much I had to make them again to share with you this year in a variety of pastel colors! They are pretty simple to assemble using just marshmallows, sprinkles and some white chocolate "glue". They make a perfect Easter treat, party favor or place setting that is sure to impress kids and adults alike.
Easter Bunny Marshmallow Pops
You will need
- Lollipop sticks
- Regular size marshmallows and mini marshmallows
- Melted white choclate chips or frosting (for "glue")
- Multi color heart confetti sprinkles (nose)
- Sequin confetti sprinkles, optional (eyes)
- Colored sugar sprinkles (ears)
- Colored jimmie sprinkles (whiskers)
- Black edible marker (or black food coloring and a fine tip paintbrush/toothpick)
- Jelly beans or fruit chews or gummies for carrot
For each bunny you will need 4 regular marshmallows and 3 mini marshmallows.
Cut one of the regular marshmallows in half diagonally for the ears, and a second regular marshmallow in half width wise for the feet.
Cut one mini marshmallow in half width wide for the cheeks.
Roll the cut edge of ears in colored sugar sprinkles.
Cut 3 slits in the top of the feet for toes.
Push the lollipop stick through the flat side of one marshmallow (body) and half way through the rounded side of a second marshmallow (head) with the flat side facing forward.
Using melted white chocolate, attach the ears, face, arms, and feet as shown below.
Draw on 2 dots for eyes using edible marker.
For the bunny's hands you can use a jelly ban or make a little carrot out of sour gummy candy by cutting a "V" shape for the carrot and trimming some greenery to stick on top. Attach a jelly bean "Easter egg" or a gummy carrot in the bunny's hands with melted chocolate.
You can individually wrap your pops in clear plastic bags for a party favor, or you can create a display for your pops. To create a display that your pops can stand upright in, take a block of Styrofoam and wrap it in festive wrapping paper or tissue paper. Push the bottom of each stick into the styrafoam for guests to easily grab and enjoy. Even tie a custom tag to the stick to use as a personalized gift or place setting!
