Sweet little white Pretzel Bunny Butts with fluffy marshmallow tails and adorable pink and white paws will add a touch of whimsy to your Easter baskets. Watch the video tutorial to see how much fun they are to make.
Last year I created Peanut Butter Bunny Butt Pretzels using round pretzel rings and you loved them so much that they became one of my most popular Easter treats, but many of you couldn’t find the circular pretzels in your local grocery store.
The good news is that you can use traditional mini pretzel twists to make Bunny Butt Pretzels and they are just as cute.
I loved the look and taste of the peanut butter bunny butt pretzels, but I thought it would be fun to change things up a bit and make them using white candy melts. My only concern was the white marshmallow tail showing up against the white bunny butt.
I chose to use traditional White Candy Melts which are off white instead of the Bright White Candy Melts which have an almost identical color to the marshmallows. If you make these pretzel bunny butts using melted and tempered pure white chocolate there will be even more contrast. Most pure white chocolates made with cocoa butter are very creamy looking. Some have almost a yellow tint to them.
You can see how the tail really pops out when using Peanut Butter Candy Melts to make the pretzel bunny butts, but I have to admit I like the white bunnies better .
Being the pretzel twists are a bit larger than the pretzel rings I needed to make the bunny paws a bit larger so I used jumbo heart sprinkles and candy pearls to create the toes and pad. The heart sprinkles were bright pink so I matched them with bright pink pearls.
These treats are equally as easy to make and look pretty darn cute!
