With Easter right around the corner, I decided to make some sweet treats perfect for the holiday. One of these is the Bunny S’More.
The Bunny S’More is just like a regular s’more only shaped like a bunny and made with delicious homemade buttery crunchy graham crackers and homemade pillowy soft Vanilla Bean marshmallows.
The grahams are dunked in bittersweet chocolate and decorated with a bit of white chocolate and sparkling sanding sugar. Each Bunny S’more is around 4″ tall and around 1 1/2″ thick but you could use any size bunny cutters to make these sweet treats.
Mini Bunny S’Mores would be really cute too! Here is how you can make your own.
Graham Cracker Bunnies: Start by making the graham cracker bunnies. I made a double batch of this graham cracker recipe and I got 15 four-inch sandwiches.
After rolling and cutting the bunny shapes, place cut bunnies in the freezer.
Let the bunnies freeze for around 30 minutes then bake for 14- 16 minutes or until golden brown. Let bunnies cool completely.
Vanilla Bean Marshmallow Bunnies: To make the marshmallow bunny centers you will need a half sheet pan to create marshmallow that isn’t too thick. You can find the entire marshmallow recipe here.
Line the half sheet pan with aluminum foil and spray with Pam. Set pan aside. Make marshmallows according to the directions, but to make these Vanilla Bean Marshmallows you will need to add a teaspoon or two of Vanilla Paste or scrape out the inside of a vanilla bean for the seeds.
After spreading the marshmallow evenly in the prepared pan, top with sifted powdered sugar and let sit for a few hours or overnight.
When marshmallow is set, carefully peel it away from the aluminum foil and cut out the bunny shapes using the bunny cookie cutter sprayed with Pam. Set bunny marshmallows aside.
Assembly: Line a baking sheet with parchment or Silpat and set aside. Separate the bunny grahams into “tops” and bottoms”.
Melt and temper bittersweet chocolate (you can use candy melts if you don’t want to temper real chocolate). Carefully dunk the outside of the “tops” into the chocolate pressing down into the chocolate to cover the sides of the graham cracker.
Flip over, letting the excess chocolate drip back into the pan and place the graham cracker on the parchment lined baking sheet. Continue until all the “tops” are covered.
Repeat with the “bottoms”, the chocolate will cover the outside of the bottoms. Of course you can completely cover your graham crackers in chocolate too!!
Set chocolate covered grahams aside to allow the chocolate to dry. Melt a little white chocolate in the microwave and place in a piping bag. Pipe a little white chocolate onto the inside of the bottom graham cracker and top with a marshmallow bunny.
Pipe a little white chocolate on the inside of the top graham cracker and press onto the top of the marshmallow. Repeat with all bunnies.
When all the bunnies are assembled use the remaining white chocolate to pipe a small eye and a tail on each bunny covering the white chocolate with sanding sugar before it dries.
Let sanding sugar sit for a few minutes then tap off extra and brush away any stray sugar crystals. Store the finished bunnies in an airtight container or package individually in clear bags tied with a ribbon for gift giving!
