I was shopping at Target and found the cutest little sugar icing carrot decorations for cupcake decorating. Then, I found PEEPS® Bunnies on sale, and I thought it would look adorable to glue the little carrot to the bunnies and put them on top of brownies with some grass like they just pulled a carrot out of the garden. So cute!

For this little project, you don’t need any kind of fancy brownies, just a regular brownie mix at the store will do (make sure you one for a 13 x 9 pan). I made brownie cups and got about 15 brownies from 1 box of mix.  Make sure to let the brownies cool completely before adding the bunnies.  You don’t want melted bunnies!

Next, you’ll need to melt a little bit of white chocolate chips or wafers.  I used 2 pieces of white almond bark, which was more than enough.  Then, I dipped my finger in the chocolate and ran it across the back of the carrot and placed it on the bunny.  The carrots were stuck to the bunnies like glue in just seconds.

I tried a few different methods for putting the bunnies on the brownies.  This was the best method that kept them from falling over.  I used a cupcake corer to remove the top.  Then, I filled the hole with melted chocolate and stuck a PEEPS® Bunny on top.

The chocolate dries pretty fast, but keep an eye on them in case the bunnies start to fall over.  I only had that happen once. You can easily make these assembly line style.  That’s what I did with 6 bunnies at a time.

Next, you can add some green grass here and there. I used a grass frosting tip with a freezer bag. I happened to have canned green watermelon flavored icing which was perfect.  But, in a pinch, you can easily dye some canned white frosting with food coloring.

Make sure you let chocolate dry before serving.  This way if somebody knocks over one, like my kids, the bunny stays perfectly attached to the brownie.

My family got such a kick out of these, and so did I.  I just get such a thrill when something comes out exactly like I imagined it.  I think they are going to be a great little Easter gift for my daughter’s preschool party, so I’m going to package them up in little cellophane bags.
