When it comes to delicious cookies, Pepperidge Farm knows how to make magic happen. And with their Milano Cookies, they also know how to make Easter happen.
Back in 2018, Pepperidge Farm released a recipe for taking Milano cookies and transforming them into Easter bunnies. It’s an adorable and easy project that makes Spring magic perfect for anyone. So of course, we had to bring it back for another year. After all, bunny cookies never really go out of style.
As a fan of Milano cookies, I love the idea of taking them and making something seasonal but still tasty. And the fact that you really only need a few things makes this an easy project for anyone looking to have some fun with their children.
Whether you are looking to create an Easter inspired cookie charcuterie board or want to add a little fun to Easter brunch, these Milano cookie bunnies are just what the crafter in us all ordered.
Pepperidge Farm gives us step-by-step instructions to create Milano bunny cookies
So what do you need to create these bunnies at home?
- A bag of Milano cookies (we are going with the Double Milk Chocolate cookies, but pick your favorite flavor for this)
- Melt Candy or meltable chocolate morsels
- Jelly beans and sprinkles
- A pastry pen
- Miniature Marshmallows
I know it may sound like a lot but it really isn’t and of course, this is for a full on bunny experience. Even if you don’t have a pastry pen or some of the other smaller things you can still make this work with just Milano cookies, the paper cups in the Milano cookie bags, and meltable chocolate.
Next up, we have the step-by-step instructions for creating your bunny:
- Take the cookie cup that your Milano cookies came in and cut them into little bunny ears.
- Following the instructions on your melt candy or chocolate morsels, melt down the white chocolate or candy dip.
- Dip the top half of your Milano cookie until just before the halfway point of the cookie (you are leaving space for little paws).
- Create eyes and a nose with the sprinkles and jelly beans, and also attach the little bunny ears you cut out.
- Place the dipped and decorated cookies on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and refrigerate.
- After the candy/chocolate dip has hardened, use the pastry pen to draw on whiskers and the black dot in the center of the eye.
- Dip your mini marshmallows in the candy/chocolate dip and then attach to the body of the cookie to act as paws.
- Now add them to your cookie board or just eat them up! Either way it’s an Easter win.
