Bunny Cookie Pops
I decorated some more oreos for you. Moreos. ; ) … I loved the letter cookie pops I posted last week so much that I couldn’t resist making cute cookie bunnies, too! They’re as easy as they are adorable.
I used my Playful Shapes Mold to make the bunny ears and bow ties. It came in pretty handy for these little hoppers.
P.S. … take a look at these bunny cookies from Cake Pop Crazy on instagram using the mustache and eyeglasses shapes from the same mold … super cute!
You can also use the mold to make flower petals and I’ve seen them used by Stacey’s Cake Pops to make crazy cute turkey feathers, too.
But for bunnies, fill the center of the ear shapes with melted pink candy wafers and let dry. Then fill the rest of the mold cavity with melted white candy wafers. Tap the mold on the counter to even out the coating. Then, place the ears in the fridge for a few minutes to set quickly. Remove the shapes from the mold by pressing on the plastic and twisting the mold over a towel on the counter.
Make the molded shapes ahead so you can save time the day you want to decorate.
Keep in mind: You could also make your own ear shapes if you don’t have a mold. Just pipe melted candy coating on wax paper in the shape you need. If you want a pink center, pipe the pink first, let it dry and then pipe over and around it with white to finish the shape. Use a toothpick to help guide the coating if necessary. When you’re ready to use them, the fronts of the ears will be flat with a pink center… the backs of the ears will probably be a little lumpy though.
Separate the cookies and dip the end of a pink pop stick in melted candy wafers. Press the stick into the creme center and put the cookies back together. You can also add a little coating around the base of the stick to help keep it from falling off. Let the coating set before dipping.
Take a look at last week’s #YAY cookies to see how.
Dip the cookie completely in melted white candy wafers and let the excess fall off.
Dip the bottom end of two pre-made ears in coating and position on top of the cookie. You’ll want to do one at a time and hold in place for a bit to keep it from falling off. Take your time. Trust me, I did have a few mess-ups before I got the balancing right. Place in a stand and let dry completely.
To decorate the faces, I just used a few things.
Use melted white coating to attach the individual candies. When it sets, the candies will be glued to the front of the cookie. Then just draw the eyes with a black edible ink pen.
But get creative and decorate them in different ways. Once you have ears in place, the front is pretty much a blank canvas. I can see heart sprinkle noses, confetti sprinkle eyes, mini marshmallow cheeks, and more.
Here’s “hopping” you enjoy these cookie cuties.
