I saw this post on Pinterest and knew I wanted to try these Donut Bunny Pops for Easter. You can find the whole step by step tutorial on the blog Positively Splendid. Mine did not turn out nearly as well! I had to make a few changes due to necessity. You can see my adaptations below.
First I just used regular large marshmallows because I’m not sure we have the stackable marshmallows here in Canada. I’ve never seen them. Cut pieces off of each marshmallow to make ears. Start fat at the bottom and cut at an angle so the top is skinnier than the bottom. When you’re done you’ll end up with these triangular shaped ears. The marshmallow kind of curls when you cut it which I think makes for a nice added touch.
Next take your food colouring and milk, like in the instructions, and carefully apply to the inside of the ear using a Q-tip.
I attached the noses and ears with white royal icing. White chocolate would probably work best but I didn’t have any so I improvised. First put some icing in the middle of the donut and apply your candy. Next cut a very small whole where you want the ears to be. Make sure to expose some of the donut/cake on the inside. The icing will stick better to the cake part of the donut rather than the icing sugar. Apply some icing and then attach your ears. At this point you will need to carefully put down your bunny so the icing can dry. Once the icing is dry everything is attached pretty well but be careful, they are fragile.
This was really easy and great to do with kids. My daughter helped with the noses and loved it.
