Marshmallow bunnies recipe

These tiny cute marshmallow bunnies are so cute and the kids will love making them with you.



  • 1 pkt white marshmallows
  • pink food colouring
  • 1 pair sharp scissors
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cloth (for wiping the scissors)
  • 1 cotton bud or toothpick


Take the sharp scissors and cut the round ends off a marshmallow. Cut a deep V from one of these pieces so they resemble bunny ears. The second piece needs be pushed back into a round shape. Set aside these 2 pieces.

Take a second marshmallow and hold the round end up to face you. Use the scissors to cut a deep V from this face all the way through the marshmallow ( if it was a clock face you would be cutting between 12 and 2 o'clock entirely out of the clock).

Set this piece down on the bench so that the removed section acts like two legs.

Snip a wedge from the top round edge and lay the bunny ears on this cut, sticky side down. Then stick the face on top of the bunny ears, sticky side down.

Take the cotton bud and dip it in the food colouring. Paint the bunny a face with it. Take a little piece of the offcuts and snip it into a bunny tail shape and stick it onto its bottom.


  • If your marshmallows are fresh it makes this bunny so much harder to make. You need to open the packet and let the marshmallows dry and get a little stale for this recipe.
  • These are a great decoration for Easter cupcakes or an Easter cake.
