These cute bunnies are so easy to put together. They make a fun party favor or Easter-basket treat when wrapped in clear cellophane bags and tied with a pastel ribbon.
Special equipment: 12 lollipop sticks
Line a baking sheet with parchment, Put 4 1/2 ounces semisweet chocolate chips or wafers and 2 teaspoons shortening or coconut oil in a glass bowl and melt at 50 percent power in a microwave at 30 seconds intervals, stirring after each, until melted, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Stick 12 yellow marshmallow bunnies (such as Peeps) onto 12 lollipop sticks. Dip the bunnies, one at a time, in the chocolate coating, spreading with a small spatula and tapping off the excess on the side of the bowl. Set the bunnies on the parchment-lined baking sheet and add halved mini marshmallows for tails. Refrigerate until set, about 20 minutes.
Bunny face variation: Instead of the tail, add 2 small edible candy eyes. Attach a small orange jelly bean to each for a carrot. Halve small green jelly beans and snip the ends to resemble carrot tops and attach to the base of the carrot.
