Looking for a fun, adorable, and simple Easter treat you can make with the kids? Try these cute Easter Bunny Pretzels!
Spring is here!
With Easter just around the corner, I wanted to share this super fun and EASY snack recipe with you. Whether you celebrate Easter or not, these Bunny Pretzels are a great snack that are easy to make with the kids.
Ingredients for the bunny pretzel recipe
Tools and Equipment:
- Wax paper - you could also use parchment paper instead.
- Icing tip (if your pink icing tube doesn't come with one)
- Mini pretzels - you could use salted or unsalted mini pretzels, it's up to you. You can also use larger standard-size pretzels instead of mini pretzels if you prrefer.
- Chocolate candy coating - Candiquick makes these that are sold commonly throughout the United States. You can also use Wilton, Ghiradelli, or other brand melting chocolates, or chopped up chocolate baking bars. Only use melted chocolate chips if you have no other actual melting chocolate available. Chocolate chips contain ingredients that help them hold their shape, and do not melt as well for treats like these.
- Mini marshmallows - these make up the cute little bunny tails! We use white mini marshmallows here, but if you're making these during springtime and can find and want to use the mini pink and green marshmallows, have at it.
- Pink icing tube - there are many brands with different types of icing tips. And, some icing tubes don't come with icing tips, so you'll need to have some for those kind of tubes.
Making these bunny pretzels is as easy as 1-2-3!
After placing down a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper, place the mini pretzels on top.
Cut the mini marshmallows in half to make the tails. You’ll need one half marshmallow for each pretzel bunny.
Melt chocolate candy coating in the microwave according to package directions. Again, you want to make sure you're using chocolate that is meant for melting: either candy coating or chopped baker's chocolate.
Carefully use a spoon to fill in the holes of the pretzels with the chocolate.
Place a marshmallow, cut side down, on the top of the bunny butt. Allow the chocolate and marshmallows to set on the counter for about 10 minutes.
Once chocolate has dried, use pink icing with a small point tip to draw paws on the chocolate for the feet. Let the pink icing dry.
Serve and enjoy!
