I think about how we often put out cookies at Christmas for Santa, along with a few carrots for his reindeer and wonder why we didn’t have Miss Sarah put out treats for the Easter Bunny! These Easter Bunny’s Carrot Cupcakes are just the thing to leave out for that bunny — and let you create memories with that special little person in your life.

Even the Easter Bunny is excited for spring to come — let’s face it, this is the LOOOOOOONG winter!  These super cute cupcakes will tickle any little bunny in your family — and are super easy to make. Let your little people help you make them and leave as a treat for your visiting bunny or even make them for your favorite gardener.
 
Easter Bunny’s Carrot Cupcakes

  • Bag of Rips candy (green for the carrot top)

Put Oreo cookies into a ziploc bag, crush them with a rolling pin. Pour the cookie crumbs out onto a plate.  Next frost your cupcakes, roll the freshly frosted cupcakes in the cookie crumbs. Repeat until all 24 cupcakes are frosted and have cookie crumbs on top.

Next step is to make the candy carrots. Cut your Starburst in half. Flatten the top of one end and make the other end pointed. On the flattened end add some green Rips, wrap the flattened end around the Rips and then roll the whole thing to form a carrot shape.  Place carrots on top of cupcake.
***You could make these full size and not cut the Starburst in half… but then you would need 75 Starbursts and you would have to by 3-4 bags to get that many. (You know I am too frugal for that, LOL)
