Turn pink fuzzy slipper cookies into adorable Bunny Slipper Cookies for Easter. Each of these pink candy-coated Nutter Butter Cookies is decorated with candy and will look so sweet in your Easter baskets.
The idea to make these Bunny Slipper Cookies has been rumbling around in my brain ever since I created my Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies using Nutter Butter Cookies.
Why, you ask has it taken so long for me to post them? I didn't write the idea down and I have fuzzy brain syndrome, a.k.a. middle age. I kept forgetting about them.
I'm so glad the idea finally came back to the forefront of my mind before Easter arrived.
My Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies were made using Nutter Butter Cookies as the base of the slipper and peanut butter fudge was used to create the rounded part of the slipper.
Each cookie was dipped in pink candy coating and then sprinkled with shaved pink candy coating.
I just added some eyes, whiskers, ears, and a nose to turn the slipper cookies into Bunny Slipper Cookies.
As I put these together, I decided instead of making a whole batch of peanut butter fudge to make a handful of bunnies to show you the tutorial, I'd use up some cake that I had leftover from making my Carrot Top Cupcakes earlier this week.
I whipped up some cake ball batter and used it in place of the fudge. Both work just as well. I just stuck the cake ball onto the Nutter Butter using some of the melted pink confectionery coating as "glue" and shaped it just as I did with the fudge.

Head on over to my Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies tutorial to see how to make the pink candy-coated Nutter Butter cookies. Then, follow the instructions below to turn them into bunnies.
Color some modeling chocolate bright pink and some light pink. Pinch off tiny pieces of light pink and roll into balls to create the bunny noses.
Pinch off pea-sized pieces of bright pink modeling chocolate, roll them into tear drops then flatten. Pinch off tiny pieces of white modeling chocolate and roll them into teardrops. Press onto the pink piece and flatten. Cut off the bottom edge to create the bunny ears.
Cut pink edible Easter grass into small pieces to create the bunny whiskers.
Use leftover pink candy coating as "glue" to attach the candy eyes to each pink fuzzy slipper cookie. Add a dot of candy coating below the eyes in the center, attach six whiskers then add more candy coating and attach the nose.
Cut the bottom back edge of each bunny ear at an angle then use candy coating to attach it to the pink fuzzy slipper cookie, so that the ears don't stick straight up, they angle towards the back of the slipper. As I was looking at the pictures of these cookies, I realized they would have looked cute with a fuzzy little tail. Too late. I've already taken over 100 pictures. Oh, well, you can add them to your cookies, if you'd like.
Your Bunny Slipper Cookies can be made in all sorts of colors for Easter. They'd also be cute for a slumber party, a spa party, or a kid's birthday party.
