Going to a Catholic school while I was in grade school had its perks. One of them was holiday celebration’s, i.e., Easter, which always meant we received loads of candy. When you are a kid candy makes the world go ‘round right? Me, being the greedy kid I was, loved anything that involved sweets. That kid still lives inside of me, and Easter is the next holiday that will satisfy her.
These past few weeks I’ve been scouting for different recipes to try on Pinterest. The one I was inspired by was Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs. However, I decided to do Candy Coated Marshmallow Bunnies. OMG! Talk about fluffy goodness on a stick. IT’S SO FLUFFY! They are so delicious and easy to make. You only need FOUR things! I mean can it be any simpler?
What you need:
-I didn’t realize they were flavored until I got home. They make the flavor pop more. I got them from Target.
• Colored Candy Melts; Vanilla Flavored
-Available at Michael’s or other craft stores.
-Purchase the non-bendy ones.
Instructions: 1. Pour the candy melts into a bowl. Use your own discretion on how many you need to melt. It all depends on how many bunnies you plan on making. (Go ahead and snack on the melts you didn’t use. You know you want to.)
2. Place the bowl in the microwave. Then cook on high for 3-5 minutes. Check randomly on it, because they’ll look like they haven’t melted. Once you stir they may begin to melt. The bowl may be hot too, if so use a cloth.
5. Stick the straws in the middle, bottom of the bunnies. (Or you can do this after you coat them.)
6. Once the coating has cooled to your liking, rub it on the bunny with a spoon or your good ole fingers. I used a spoon at first, but then became impatient. Licking my fingers at the end was the best. (Coat lightly.)
7. Place the finished bunny on a plate covered with a strip of aluminum foil. Then cover the treat with sprinkles. Don’t wait until you finish them all to sprinkle them, the coating tends to dry fast.
8. If you want place them in the refrigerator for a cool treat. Or just wait for them to dry completely, then dive in and eat!
