What in the world are these crazy rabbits looking for? Whatever it is, they’re making a mess with dirt everywhere. But the good news is that this dirt doubles as a sweet treat.
These adorable bunny butt dirt cups can be made ahead of time, and they are beyond easy to assemble too.
Just fill clear cups with chocolate pudding. I like to use plastic cups.
And you can even use premade pudding if you like.
Remove and discard the creme filling from chocolate sandwich cookies. Ground the chocolate cookies in a food processor.
Pulverize the cookies until they look like coffee grounds.
Next, scatter the cookie crumbs on top of the pudding to make the “dirt.”
Since bunnies like to munch on grass, the next step is to make grass out of shredded coconut.
Add green food coloring to shredded coconut, and mix together until it resembles grass.
Top the dirt with grass, leaving a small mound of dirt in the middle where the bunny butt will be placed.
Now it’s time to make the bunnies. For each body, cut a large marshmallow in half widthwise.
Try to pick out of the bag the marshmallows that are nice and round. Sometimes they can get a little smashed in the bag.
For the bunny’s tail, smash and roll together two miniature marshmallows until they’re sticky. Roll them into a ball, and put them in the candy sprinkles.
The candy sprinkles should cover all sides because the marshmallows will be sticky. Set the bunny tails aside for just a moment.
Then spoon the melted candy melts into the corner of a snack-size zip-close bag. Cut a super-small snip in the corner where the melted candy is to make a bag for piping.
Onto parchment paper, pipe the bunny feet. If the edges of the parchment paper want to curl, set a couple of large marshmallows on top of the edges to hold them down. Set aside to let the bunny feet cool (about 10 minutes).
Dab a little bit of the melted white candy onto the bottom of the bunny’s tail, and attach it toward the top of the halved marshmallow to make the bunny’s bottom.
Once the bunny feet are set, turn them over so that the smooth side is facing up. Put melted pink candy in the corner of a snack-size zip-close bag, and make a super-small snip in the corner where the candy is. Then pipe the pink candy onto the bunny feet to make the pads. Dab a toothpick into the tip of the melted bag of pink candy, and dot the bunny feet to make the toes.
Warm up the white candy melts, dab it onto the backs of the bunny feet on the opposite end of the toes, and attach the feet to the bunny’s bottom.
Set the bunny bottoms in the dirt feet side up, and decorate with jelly beans around the edges.
Then serve, and dig in.
Or maybe look at how cute they are for a while before digging in.
