Bunny Butt (1)

 

Bunny Butts and Bunny Tails are just too cute!! I am having so much fun this year coming up with crafts/recipes that showcase both. 

Bunny Butt Pretzels

These adorable bunny butt pretzels are just too cute!  My boys are going to go crazy on Easter Day when they get to eat these!  

Kid Friendly

You kids will love helping you with this treat.  Some steps (like making the feet) will definitely need your assistance but the rest the kids should easily be able to help with. 

 

The combination of white chocolate and pretzels (sweet and salty) is just incredible.  These are not only adorable they are delicious!

 

Melting chocolate

Instant Pot Method

One of my favorite ways to melt chocolate is using my Instant Pot as a double boiler. Fast, easy and you are able to move it around wherever you find a plugin near. 

 

Once melted pour chocolate into bottle and get creating your bunny tail treats! 

 

Microwave Method

 

In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave. Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power. 

 

Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy. Remember less is better. 

 

You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon. You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.

 

How To Store Bunny Tails 

Once your bunny tails are dry and fully set you can then place in an airtight lid that has a cover or in a sealable bag. 

 

You can store these no bake bunnies on the counter or even the fridge if your home is a little warm. If they overheat the chocolate will melt and they will get ruined. 

 

Also if you plan to layer them I recommend placing parchment paper in between or even wax paper to prevent sticking. 

Can I Make These In Advance

Of course. You can make these 1-2 days in advance. The biggest thing is making sure your marshmallows stay soft and pretzels stay firm. 

 

If you make too far in advance they could begin to lessen in quality. 

 

Variations to Pretzel Bunny Tails

  • Do a different colored chocolate. Or mix and match colors to add more brightness to your tails. 
  • Change up the look a bit of you find something you think will look cuter. 
  • Buy big pretzels to make a larger look and use big marshmallows for the tails. 

As you can see there are ways to change up the look. Have fun, be creative and just enjoy. 

 

Can You Freeze Pretzel Bunny Treats

These get eaten too fast for me to freeze. I would say if you do freeze you might run into the Treat getting a little softer in texture once thawed. 

 

I can’t vouch and say it will work but you are welcome to give it a try. Just freeze properly for up to three months. 

 

Thaw on the counter at room temperature. Hopefully they thaw nicely for a tasty treat later on for you!

Ingredients

  • White Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Pretzels
  • Pink Marshmallows
  • Small Pink Pearl like candies
  • Pink Heart Sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Melt chocolate (see post for perfect melting directions). If you have a squeeze bottle put your melted chocolate into that.
  2. On parchment paper start creating your bunny feet. If you don't have a squeeze bottle you can use a fat stick (a cake pop stick works great) to dip into your chocolate and shape your feet. Before the chocolate dries, use your heart sprinkles and pink pearl candies to finish off the feet. A toothpick will come in handy for perfect positioning.
  3. Fill your pretzels with melted chocolate. Before the chocolate dries, place a pink marshmallow in position for your bunny tail.
  4. Carefully lift your bunny feet off of the parchment paper and position into place on your still melted chocolate.
  5. Let your bunny dry and enjoy!

Notes

If you are not using your instant pot as a double boiler.. you can melt you chocolate:

In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave.  Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power.  Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy. Remember less is better. You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon.  You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.
