Reese’s Easter Egg Bunnies

Good morning!  Can you believe that Easter is just two weeks ago?  I had a plan for Easter ideas that I wanted to share with you … the plan got tossed out the window while I was drying my hair the other day!  I came up with a new idea … I’ll call it the “hair idea” and will share it in a few days.  A Target trip was necessary for supplies for the “hair idea” … while I was wandering the Target aisles picking up the supplies … another idea was born that I should, but won’t call the “hare idea” … Reese’s Easter Egg Bunnies …

I hope these bunnies make you smile!  They are easy to make using a few store-bought candies and a little patience ;)

Reese's Rabbit Big Ears

These are the supplies that you will need to make these  Big Ear Bunnies …

bunny marshmallow ears

  • Reese’s White Peanut Butter Eggs
  • Large marshmallows
  • Mike & Ike candies
  • White Hershey-ets
  • Tiny black pearls
  • SweetWorks pink pearls
  • Pink sugar
  • Flower Sprinkles
  • White Candy Coating (such as CandiQuik) (about 1/4 cup for 6 bunnies)
  • Tray lined with wax paper or parchment.

Mike & Ike carrots marshmallows

  1. Make the carrots … use a sharp knife to make a small cut in one end of an orange candy and insert a green flower sprinkle.
  2. Make ears and tails … use scissors to cut a marshmallow in half to make 2 tails and cut another one diagonally to for 2 ears (you will use 1-1/2 marshmallows per bunny)
  3. Dip cut edges of marshmallows in pink sugar.  Egg bunny
  4. Use melted candy to attach candies in the following order … ears, nose & eyes, carrot, hands/paws.
  5. Attach feet/paws.
  6. Attach tail to backside … this will help stabilize the bunny for standing.
  7. If you want to make your bunny stand up … drop a small (1″) circle of melted candy on wax paper and place the bunnies body and tail on it … hold until set.

Easter Bunny Reese's Egg

I did have one egg that was a little smooshed/cracked … tried to salvage it by covering the cracks with a tail and make a “back view bunny” … bunny tails seem to be loved by everyone!
