How to Make Hanging Mug Bunny Cookies
Do you see bunnies everywhere you look? They are in the grocery store, at craft stores, at the mall and even in my yard. They seem to be multiplying by the minute. Seeing them everywhere gave me an idea for some fun Easter cookies. Let’s make some hanging mug bunny cookies with a little twist. Most hanging mug cookies are placed on coffee cups, but this Easter, let’s do something a little different.Let’s hang them on our Easter dessert! Fill a glass with chocolate cake and chocolate frosting and ‘plant’ a carrot cookie in the top. Hang the simple little hanging mug bunny cookie on the side of the glass and you will have a unique dessert that will make kids and adults jump for joy! Well, they might not actually jump, but they will definitely remember this cute dessert!
Supplies for Hanging Mug Bunny Cookies:
Bunny Cookie Cutter
Small Flower Cutter for the tail
Cutter for Hanging Cookies on Cups-glue it to the back of the cookie with royal icing
Carrot Cookie Cutter or here or here-This isn’t where I purchased the cookie cutter but it was in this set. I got mine at either Wal-Mart, Kroger or some other local store. The cutter is 4″ in case you can’t find this exact one.
Color Cookie Dough colored any color you want for the tails, cut out mini flower shapes and bake.
- Outline and flood the bunny with the white royal icing.
- While the icing is wet, add the colored bunny tail cookie.
- Let the rabbit dry completely.
- After the cookie has dried completely, flip it over and pipe some icing where you want to place the hanger.
- Add the hanger cookie. If it won’t stay in place, use a few baked cookies to help hold it in place.
- Let the cookies dry completely.
For the carrot:
I didn’t make a tutorial for the carrot but here is how you make them:
- Pipe some green wonky dots at the top of the carrot.
- Pipe some lines from each dot down where the carrot and green top meet.
- Let it dry.
- Outline and flood the carrot with orange royal icing.
- Let it dry completely before you place it in the cake.
- Remove the cream filling out of the Oreo Cookies.
- Chop the cookies in a food processor.
- Depending on how many hanging mug bunny cookies you need to make will determine how many Oreo cookies you need to chop. You only need a small amount to look like dirt on the top of the frosting.
Assemble your dessert before your guests arrive.
- Bake a chocolate cake and place your chocolate frosting in a piping bag. I used a 1M tip to pipe the frosting.
- Once the cake has cooled, cut circle with a circle cookie cutter that is about the same width as your glass. I used 2 cutters since the glass was narrow at the bottom.
- Place a circle of cake in the bottom of the glass.
- Pipe some frosting on top of the cake.
- Place a second piece of cake on top of the frosting.
- Pipe more frosting on the cake.
- Place the third piece of cake on the frosting.
- Now break the cake in the center and add the carrot cookie.
- Pipe some frosting around the cookie.
- Sprinkle with Oreo crumbs.
- Hang the cute little bunny cookies on the side of the glasses.
