5 large marshmallows
2 tbsp. ready-made white frosting
2 pieces shoestring licorice, ribbon or string (10 inch each)
10 miniature marshmallows
Assorted candies and colored sugar
Stack 2 of the large marshmallows for each bunny, securing marshmallows to each other with some of the frosting. Tie licorice loosely around middle of each marshmallow stack to separate head and body sections of bunny. Cut remaining large marshmallow lengthwise into quarters for the "ears." Attach 2 ears to each head with frosting. Attach 4 of the miniature marshmallows to each bunny for the "paws" and 1 miniature marshmallow to each bunny for the "cottontail," using some of the remaining frosting to attach each piece. Use assorted candies to make the faces. Decorate the ears with colored sugar. Let stand at room temperature until dry.
Makes 2 bunnies.
How To Soften Licorice
If using licorice to tie around marshmallows, soften it slightly before using for best results. Just place on paper towel and microwave, 1 piece at a time, on HIGH 7 seconds or until slightly softened.
