The kids and I had so much fun making these Bunny Butt Cookies, I can’t even begin to tell you. Mostly because for a little while at our house it was “legal” to say “butt” and not get in trouble! I suppose you could call them Bunny Bottom cookies, if you wanted, it just wasn’t nearly as cute with all the giggles.
I actually have the Artco Cutter set that I think I picked up at a pottery store, you can see the set HERE, and have always used it on food and cookies. This little set has been INVALUABLE in the kitchen. I highly suggest having one!
Cut out 2 small circles for every large circle you cut, then bake until just before they are brown and take them out to cool.
Now you are going to make your frosting. I have always used the same frosting recipe, well and I don’t even have a recipe for it. You take some soft butter, maybe 1/2 a stick, and about 1/2 t. of vanilla (use clear if making white frosting) then about 1/4 cup of milk. Turn your mixer on with the beaters attached and start mixing as you add in powdered sugar. This is going to take 4-6 cups powdered sugar. Beat together until it is just a tiny bit thicker then you think it perfect. If you need to add milk, do it SUPER slowly and a LITTLE bit at a time.
I separated the frosting and left one white and made one pink.
For the Bunnt feet, I used Candy beads or pearls found HERE. I also used a bag of the candy melts in light pink for the “pads” of the bunny feet.
They look so pretty all done! It was hard to keep kids off them! I took a mini marshmallow and dipped it in some frosting and then dipped it in some white sprinkles that I had on hand for his little Bunny tail. You could use glitter or something like that as well. Or jus a mini marshmallow.
I used some frosting to hold the feet on the larger cookie. They make a vary large cookie, so if you wanted to bag them up for kids to hand out, you can easily get away with one cookie per person!
I would love to see your photos if you make these adorable cookies!
