Marshmallow Easter Bunnies

This year, for the first time in 5 years, I made marshmallow bunnies for Easter gifts.  I always find making these a little nerve racking because there are so many variables that can go wrong, but everything seemed to work out in the wash - the bunnies set, they didn't have crazy gelatine tops on them, nor did they have crunchy bottoms.  I was very pleased with them.

The recipe for these bunnies is here.  I made four medium bunnies and 12 little ones from the mixture.  I added vanilla flavouring, but left the bunnies white.

The bunnies don't look like much until you paint on the detail with liquid food colouring, so do not skip that step.  Also, make sure that you roll each bunny in dessicated coconut once painted to stop it from sticking to everything.

These bunnies are a fun Easter treat to make for the young or young at heart.  They also use minimal ingredients, so are cheap to make.

What traditional treats do you make at Easter?
