Super Easy, Super Cute Easter Bunny Cupcakes

Nothing says Easter like Easter Bunny cupcakes, am I right? I am always trying to make on-theme desserts for a certain little pre-schooler and these certainly made her a happy girl. You can make your own cupcakes of course or even just buy undecorated cupcakes from a bakery or grocery store and just add the simple decorations.

You’ll need frosted cupcakes, jelly beans, coconut, black icing, and bunny ears. To make the ears I just cut the shapes from white and pink construction paper and taped them to toothpicks (see? Easy.)

Roll the frosted cupcake top in coconut and make sure it’s fully covered.

Decorate! Halved jelly beans make the perfect eyes and nose for a bunny. Draw whiskers and a mouth with your black icing. Stick in the ears.

Voila – Easter bunny cupcakes to please any/all kiddos. Enjoy!

Easter Bunny Rice Krispie Treats

I was looking for a quick-fix Easter dessert this week and decided in Rice Krispie treats with a little Easter twist. What’s more classic than a Rice Krispie treat?! They are SO easy to make and generally a crowd pleaser, right? To make these all you do is melt 3 tablespoons unsalted butter with 1 bag of marshmallows. Mix into 6 cups of Rice Krispies (or in my case, the Trader Joe’s version because that’s where I was when I had this idea), cool, cut, serve, enjoy! I mean, c’mon, easiest dessert ever.

For Easter, I just made a little addition. I added (well, my helper did) spring-colored sprinkles with the 6 cups of Rice Krispies so when the marshmallow/butter mixture was poured in, the treats came out looking a little more festive and colorful.

Then, I cut them into bunny shapes instead of squares.

And maybe I used a few candies to add a little more decor.

Either way – they were easy to make and yummy to eat. Enjoy!
