Chocolate Bunnies Cookie Tutorial

Chocolate Bunnies 2

I’ve always loved this cartoon, so I thought I’d make some Easter cookies in honor of the it.  Here’s how to make them:

You will need:

  • Your favorite sugar cookie recipe
  • Your favorite royal icing recipe in three colors – chocolate brown, white, and black
  • Bunny cookie cutter
  • Word balloon cookie cutter
  • Chocolate jimmies or brown sprinkles/nonpareils

When cutting out the bunny cookies, you will need to cut half of them with the cookie cutter turned upside down.  Then, take a small round crinkle cookie cutter, and cut off the ears on one set and cut off the bunny butt on the other set.  Bake as usual.

If you only have one word balloon cookie cutter, you will need to cut half of them with the cookie cutter turned upside down so the balloons can point to each rabbit.  I have the Word Balloon Cookie Cutter Set with word balloons facing right and left, so I didn’t need to do this.

After the cookies have cooled completely, you are ready to decorate.

Outline and flood the bunny cookies with the chocolate brown royal icing.

Flood

Once the cookies are dry, outline and flood the word balloon cookies with white royal icing.  Sorry.  I forgot to take a photo of this.

Next, add details to the bunny  cookies with piping consistency chocolate brown royal icing.  Add a tail to the bunnies that still have tails by flooding the tail area and sprinkling it with chocolate jimmies while it’s still wet.

Outline Crop

Add the bunnies’ eyes with white royal icing.  When that’s dry, add black eyeballs with the black royal icing.

Now, outline the word balloon cookies in piping consistency black royal icing and write “My butt hurts.” on one set and “What?” on the other set.

Give the cookies a little more time to dry and you are done.  Not only are these adorable, but they are funny too.
