Chocolate Bunny Silhouettes

Directions:

  1. Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  2. Roll each mini marshmallow in the palms of your hands to make them more round and wrinkled – like a bunny tail.
  3. Have your cookies, marshmallows, and dipping fork ready.
  4. Melt the bag of chocolate chips. Spoon a portion of the chocolate into a piping bag with small round tip.
  5. Place a Nilla wafer on parchment paper to use as a guide for how large to make the bunny heads. Pipe out a round circle about 1/3 the size of the vanilla wafer. Add two ears and fill in with chocolate.
  6. While chocolate is still wet, immediately dip the Nilla wafer into the bowl of chocolate – submerging it completely.
  7. Use a fork to lift the cookie out of the chocolate. Tap the edge of the bowl to allow excess chocolate to drip off. Set the chocolate covered cookie just below the piped bunny head to connect the two.
  8. Press a mini marshmallow onto the bottom of the chocolate covered cookie.
  9. Place the Chocolate Bunny Silhouettes in the refrigerator to harden.

Note: You may use a small piece of modeling chocolate to stand the bunnies up as shown in the photo.

What do you think?? Adorable, right? Hope you have fun making this Easter craft with your kids!!
