Last year I had experimented with pretzel bunnies. They were a big hit with my family, so I wanted to try them again with a little help from my favorite little helper. We had recently purchased a set of food markers & we both could not wait to use them.
What you will need:
Melt 3 Tbsp of butter. Mix it with 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter, 1 cup of confectioners sugar & 1 tsp of vanilla. Mix it well. Scoop a heaping tsp of peanut butter mixture and roll into a ball. Place on a sheet of wax paper & use a spoon to flatten into a disc. Put them into the freezer for about a half hour or until they are slightly hardened.
Melt the chocolate according to package directions.
Lay out another sheet of wax paper. Dip the pretzel sticks, two at a time into the melted chocolate. Let the excess chocolate drip off & place them on the wax paper in a V shape.
Remove the peanut butter discs from the freezer a few at a time. Dip them one at a time making sure to cover the top, bottoms & sides & place over the pretzel, just covering about 1/4 of the bottom. Use a rubber spatula to fill in any empty space. Let the chocolate cool & harden.
Then comes the fun part. Use your food markers to draw in the bunny faces. My daughter couldn’t wait to draw on her bunnies.
Here was her favorite bunny that she made, complete with hair bow & scarf.
They were a huge hit again with my family and my friends at work.
