What You Will Need

Biscuit / cookie / biccie recipe ingredients

Ingredients you will need:

  • Milk arrowroots (or other similar plain biscuits)
  • Icing sugar
  • Marshmallows (assorted sizes is useful)
  • Cake decorations, such as sprinkles and writing icing

How to Make

Step 1

Create the bunny decorations, such as the tails, ears and bunny feet. For the tails, you can use half a mini marshmallow, squished to make it fluff out.

For the rabbit cookies, make the ears by cutting a large marshmallow in half, then half again (see pic).

Marshmallows with sprinkles

For the hopping bunny cookies, you can make the feet by cutting a marshmallow in half, then decorate each half with paw pads. For this, you can use coloured writing icing, or simply stick on some assorted sprinkles onto the sticky cut side of the marshmallow. You could stick with the same colour throughout, or try some different combinations to create a rainbow of colourful bunnies.

We managed to find a jar of assorted sprinkle shapes called Unicorn Confetti Sprinkles (available in both of the main supermarkets) that worked really well for this recipe.

Step 2

Next, make the icing according to the instructions on the packet. Try to make the icing so that it’s not too runny, so it doesn’t drip off the biscuits. Then ice the biscuits. You can use a blunt knife or the back of a spoon to spread the icing over each biscuit.

Step 3

While the icing is still a bit wet, add the ears and tail for the rabbit cookies, and the feet and tail for the hopping bunny cookies.

Decorating biscuits

For the rabbit cookies, you can use writing icing or chocolate chips to create the eyes.
