Hungry Happenings: Turn Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies into Bunny Slipper Cookies for Easter

Turn Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies into Bunny Slipper Cookies for Easter


The idea to make these Bunny Slipper Cookies has been rumbling around in my brain ever since I created my Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies using Nutter Butter Cookies. Why, you ask has it taken so long for me to post them? I didn't write the idea down and I have fuzzy brain syndrome, a.k.a. middle age. I kept forgetting about them. I'm so glad the idea finally came back into the forefront of my mind before Easter arrived. 


My Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies were made using Nutter Butter Cookies as the base of the slipper and peanut butter fudge was used to create the rounded part of the slipper. Each cookie was dipped in pink candy coating then sprinkled with shaved pink candy coating. 


I just added some eyes, whiskers, ears, and a nose to turn the slipper cookies into Bunny Slipper Cookies.


As I put these together, I decided instead of making a whole batch of peanut butter fudge to make a handful of bunnies to show you the tutorial, I'd use up some cake that I had leftover from making my Carrot Top Cupcakes earlier this week. I whipped up some cake ball batter and used it in place of the fudge. Both work just as well. I just stuck the cake ball onto the Nutter Butter using some of the melted pink confectionery coating as "glue" and shaped it just as I did with the fudge. 

You can see the complete tutorial to make the Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies here.



Bunny Slipper Cookies (makes 15)

Ingredients:

15 Nutter Butter Cookies
1 cup creamy peanut butter (I choose Jif)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon table salt
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
30 candy eyes
pink edible candy Easter grass
modeling chocolate (recipe here)
pink candy coloring

Special Equipment Needed:

parchment paper lined baking sheets that fit in your freezer
paper towels
food only paint brushes

Instructions:

Go here to see the tutorial to make the pink fuzzy slipper cookies. Then come back here to see how to decorate you bunny slipper cookies.


Color some modeling chocolate bright pink and some light pink. Pinch off tiny pieces of light pink and roll into balls to create the bunny noses. 

Pinch off pea size pieces of bright pink modeling chocolate, roll into tear drops then flatten. Pinch off tiny pieces of white modeling chocolate and roll into tear drops. Press onto the pink piece and flatten. Cut off the bottom edge to create the bunny ears. 

Cut pink edible Easter grass into small pieces to create the bunny whiskers.

Use left over pink candy coating as "glue" to attach the candy eyes to each pink fuzzy slipper cookie. Add a dot of candy coating below the eyes in the center, attach six whiskers then add more candy coating and attach the nose. 

Cut the bottom back edge of each bunny ear at an angle then use candy coating to attach it to the pink fuzzy slipper cookie, so that the ears don't stick straight up, they angle towards the back of the slipper.

As I'm looking at the pictures of these cookies, I realized they would have looked cute with a fuzzy little tail. Too late. I've already taken over 100 pictures. Oh, well, you can add them to your cookies, if you'd like.


Your Bunny Slipper Cookies can be made in all sorts of colors for Easter. They'd also be cute for a slumber party, a spa party, or a kid's birthday party.

    1. Yes, every time I go into the kitchen to work on my Easter chocolate orders I get sidetracked by a new idea. I just organized all my orders and will concentrate on making chocolate all weekend, but I have a few more ideas I want to share here next week. Busy, busy!

  5. I can't take it any more. It's so hard to decide which of your too cute ideas to use for Easter. My little brain is on overdrive, but I love it. Can't wait to open your posts and see what other incredibly cute idea you've come up with.

    I'd never heard of edible grass til one of your recent posts. for your followers - found it yesterday at Walmart in pink, green and light blue in the $2.38 or so price range. Originally thought it would have to be ordered on line.

    Your photos are always so helpful. By holding the slipper in your hand it becomes obvious how big/small it is. Since they're made of Nutter Butters -we SHOULD know, but a photo is worth 1,000 words.

    1. I know, I've given you so many options this Easter. I just can't help myself. I found packages of edible grass at Jo Ann Fabrics and think I saw them at Michael's as well. It is becoming pretty popular for Easter.
      It's fun to work with. I just finished making dozens of carrot shaped rice krispies treats and used the green grass. I'm not really wild about the flavor of the grass, but my exchange student can't quit eating it. She really likes it. So, you'll have to decide for yourself if you like it or not. The different colors usually have different flavors.

    1. Hi Cathleen, Oh, that is too bad that they don't sell them in Canada. You could make your own cookie cut out in the same shape or find another cookie that is shaped like a long oval to make this project.
