Happy Spring! Finally right? After a long winter that many of us had, we’re so ready for the season to change.

It won’t be too much longer before we will be celebrating Easter. Can you believe it’s only a few weeks away?  It definitely is one of my favorite holidays to spend with my family. Gathering with my family members on Easter brings back so many great memories of my childhood days. I absolutely love it!  From Easter egg hunting with the kids, to the basket full of desserts on the table, one thing is for sure, I love making cookies during this time of the year. It’s a simple dessert that honestly is the first yummy dessert that everyone loves. Especially when I bake these very cute Bunny Butt Cookies. It’s one way that allows my family to hop into Easter together. -And not to mention, most enjoyable to eat.

 

 

Just the other day while I was shopping at Walmart for my Easter supplies, I noticed how they have one aisle that is dedicated to this special holiday. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to find everything that I needed to make my Bunny Butt Cookies.  Walmart certainly is the go to store this Spring.

That is when I decided to picked up a bag of M&M’S® Milk Chocolate and Starburst® Jelly Beans. Two of my personal favorite Easter candies to have on hand plus- they make my cookie recipe look and taste even better!

 

 

When I mention the name -Bunny Butt cookies to my family, we laugh with almost tears in our eyes. Believe it or not, the name of these cookies mean no harm but are ridiculously good!  -And honestly, they’re so easy to make it’s silly.

 

Bunny Butt Cookies

 

For my recipe you will need:

  • M&M’S® Milk Chocolate ( 20 pieces)
  • Starburst® Jelly Beans (Strawberry) (30 pieces)
  • Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough (16.5 oz package)
  • One can of Whipped Strawberry Frosting
  • Ten Mini Marshmallows
  • Wax Paper
  • Cooking Spray

 

 

Begin by removing your Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough from it’s wrapper. Place down a sheet of waxed paper on your work space. Here is a great tip, if you plan on baking the dough right away, make sure it’s chilled before you slice it. Doing so allows the dough to stay together (in form) before slicing. With using a knife, slice the cookie dough in one inch slices. This may sound funny.  You actually need the main (bunny butt) cookie to be larger. So there is no need to roll the dough. Just slice and place on a cookie sheet.

This would be a good time to preheat your oven according to the packaging.

While your oven is preheating, take one of your one inch cookie dough slices and cut it into fourths. You will be using them in the next step.

 

 

Forming the bunnies feet is actually very simple. Take a piece of the small slices and form it to resemble a round egg shape. It’s perfectly fine if some of the slices are larger than others. Just form them by hand. -And remember, each Bunny Butt cookie will be unique.

Baking the sugar cookies (bunny butt) and bunnies feet separately on a baking sheet would be also ideal.

 

 

 

Once your cookies are finished baking, let them briefly cool on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack. Repeat this step with the bunnies feet. Also, remember that the bunnies feet will not take as long to bake so stay close to the oven or set a timer for 5 minutes to check them.

It’s time to start frosting but before we do, here is a quick tip. To save some extra steps use a pre made whipped strawberry buttercream frosting. It’s so much easier than breaking out the food color dye and finding the right blends to make pink frosting. I love no hassle hacks and this one was a breeze!

On each cookie, equally layer the frosting. Cover most of the cookie if possible and do the same for the feet.

 

Once you have finished frosting your cookies now comes the fun part. Decorating the Bunny Butt Cookie with M&M’S® Milk Chocolate, Starburst® Jelly Beans, and don’t forget a mini marshmallow for the tail. I placed three Starburst® Jelly Beans on each foot and one pastel colored M&M’S® Milk Chocolate.

How super cute are they?
