Dressed-Up Marshmallow Bunnies
- Using a paring knife, make a small slit in the bottom of each bunny. Insert straw.
- In a small bowl, combine chocolate-flavor candy coating wafers and 2 teaspoons shortening. Microwave on 100% power (high) for 1 1/2- to 2 minutes until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Repeat with white-color candy coating wafers and remaining shortening. Hold a bunny via straw over a bowl of melted candy coating. Spoon coating over bunny on all sides, allowing excess to drip off. Place coated bunny on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Decorate with sprinkles or coconut, if desired. Place a tiny marshmallow near the bottom of the bunny for a tail, using the melted candy coating as glue, if needed. Repeat with remaining bunnies, decorating as desired. Chill until set.
From the Test Kitchen
You can use multiple different colors of candy coating to make a marbled effect.
