6 cups rice krispies
3 tablespoons butter
10 oz package of marshmallows
white melting chocolate
bunny cookie cutter
In a large saucepan melt the butter over medium/low heat. Add your marshmallows and stir them until completely melted. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
Add rice krispies to your melted marshmallows. Stir them until all the cereal is coated evenly.
Press your rice krispies mixture evenly onto a buttered cookie sheet or use wax paper. Allow them to cool completely.
Take your rice krispies treats and place them on a flat surface. Cut the bunny shapes out with a buttered cookie cutter. Continue until you have used all of your surface area. You can share the scraps with your helpers or just enjoy them all yourself. No judgment! 😉
Using a double boiler (or your microwave) to melt your white chocolate on medium/low heat, stirring constantly. You can add vegetable or coconut oil to thin your chocolate if needed. Add only a tablespoon of oil at a time.
Once your chocolate is to a desired consistency, you can spoon chocolate onto your bunnies and spread it out evenly. You could also melt your chocolate thin enough to pour over the bunnies on a wire cooling rack if you’d prefer. Use pastel food coloring to make fun colored bunnies!
Reserve a small amount of white chocolate and dye it light pink for your bunnies ears and nose. Spoon the chocolate into a piping bag or a ziploc bag with the tip cut off.
Use the black icing to give your bunnies a mouth and eyes.
Your bunnies are now ready to eat! Enjoy!
