A Cold, Cold Bunny!
Somebunny's gonna scream for Ice Cream!
If there’s one Bunny dessert that will go hand in hand with the hot weather expected in LA this Easter weekend, I would have to say it’s going to be Bunny Ice cream!
And no, I’m not referring to the actual Bunny brand ice cream (there is such a brand) I’m talking about a super cute, fast and yummy way to serve a cold scoop of frozen deliciousness and make it Bunny-themed, given the festive Spring occasion.
The kids will love it because they get excited anytime there’s ice cream and they love when mom makes fun and themed snacks for them.
Adults will think you’re a genius with too much time in your hands when this really only requires about 10 minutes of prep time.
They’re Bunny shaped ice cream cones that require nothing other than homemade, candy bunny ears.
To make these— you will need the following:
*white candy melts
*pink sprinkles (I used pink sugar pearls)
*vanilla ice cream
*waffle ice cream cones
The trick is in the bunny ears.
I like the bunny ear tips to look pointy rather than round, so I used the end of a spaceship cookie cutter mold to give them a pointy shape.
1. Place the white candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and microwave them for a few minutes— just enough to make them melt but not all the way to the point they bubble.
2. Place scoops of the candy melt on parchment paper and let them cool. You can put them in the fridge to make this process faster. Once they’re set, mold them to give them a Bunny ear shape. Make sure they’re all approximately the same size. I used the tip of a space ship cookie cutter mold to make things easier.
4. Once you have the bunny ear shapes, carefully place the sprinkles along the center (use leftover candy melt to serve as glue).
5. Serve a round scoop of vanilla ice cream inside a waffle cone.
6. Insert Bunny ears.
I used a small scoop of ice cream which is nice to limit the amount of sugar intake!!
But also it gives the illusion that Bunny is inside the rabbit hole and you can only see the top of its head.
I hope you have a fun weekend!
Temperatures in LA are expected to reach the high 70's.... perfect for an Easter-Themed ice cream treat.
Happy Easter friends and thanks for reading!
