I am not a fan of marshmallow Peeps, but I love how they look. They just scream Easter to me. They’re so colorful. So when I saw this Peeps bunny cookie cutter, I had to buy it.
I always use this recipe for my sugar cookies. It’s by far the best and is so easy to make. But I wanted to make chocolate sugar cookies. (Something different.) So I went over to Sue’s blog, Munchkin Munchies, because she is my cookie go to for recipes and ideas. Sue uses Lila Loa’s recipe and swears by it. So, of course, that’s the one I chose to use.
After your cookies have cooled, pipe a line of frosting around the edge of the cookie. Allow to dry (at least 1 hour.)
Fill cookies, making sure you thin your frosting so it will “pour”.
At this point you can sprinkle your cookies with sanding sugar, if you want. I thought they looked more like the marshmallow Peeps with the sugar on them. (But yikes on matching the colors.)
Allow the icing to harden completely before adding dots for the eyes and nose (Otherwise the colors will bleed.)
Aren’t they cute? And the taste? Delicious!
