Bunny Tails

Bunny-Tails-5

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. Dying eggs, baskets, candy, Easter dresses, bonnets…what’s not to love? We used to dye eggs every year. My sister is the artistic one in our family and would make the prettiest eggs. Mine never turned out so great so I would always have her finish my eggs. I would try to take the credit, but I am not a very good liar:)

We used to make Bunny Tails every year too. These were my favorite because even I could make them look good. You don’t need to be an artist to make Bunny Tails. They are easy to make and so stinkin’ cute!

Bunny-Tails-2

To make Bunny Tails you only need three ingredients-marshmallows, white chocolate, and coconut. I told you they were easy! And of course they taste good too! You can’t go wrong with combining sugar, chocolate, and coconut.

All you have to do to make a Bunny Tail is dip the marshmallows in melted white chocolate and sprinkle them with coconut. Let them dry and you are good to go!

Bunny-Tails-4

Bunny Tails are so fun to make with the kiddos. I tried to have Caleb help me, but he got distracted. Caleb and Josh (my other child) started playing catch with the marshmallows. Caleb thought they were balls:) Marshmallows were flying everywhere! I guess they the boys didn’t appreciate the cute little bunny tails. Where was my sister when I needed her? :)

Set aside some time to make Bunny Tails for Easter this year! They are a fun and easy treat! You can package them up and add these cute and free Bunny Tail tags and give them as gifts. They would also be a great addition to an Easter basket!

These Bunny Tails are adorable. I think Peter Rabbit will even be jealous of these bushy bunny tails! :)

    I’m not a big marshmallow fan but these are cute. I might try dipping thick banana slices in white chocolate and coconut instead. An other ideas for a marshmallow substitute?

    I would love to make these out of mini marshmallows – maybe even the pastel colored ones, so you could just pop one in your mouth. Cute!
