Ingredients
  • 24 Mini Pretzels
  • 1 cup of White Candy Melting Chips
  • 24 Black Decorating Pearls (or Mini Chocolate Chips)
  • 4 Pink Starbursts
  • Red Candy Decorating Pen OR ⅛ cup of Red Candy Melting Chips
  • Black decorating pen
Instructions
  1. Knead and flatten each Starburst out into a rectangle. You will want it to be fairly flat.
  2. Cut each Starburst to create 48 inner ears (1/8" x ½") and 24 pink noses. Then lay to the side.
  3. Lay the pretzels out on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  4. Heat the white candy chips by microwaving for 30 seconds, stirring and repeating until melted. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Transfer the chocolate to the corner of a zippered bag and clip a tiny piece off of the corner to pipe.
  6. Pipe candy over the inside of the pretzel to form the shape of a bunny head. Smooth with finger if necessary.
  7. Place the black decorating pearls for eyes and the Starburst ears and noses.
  8. Heat the red candy chips by microwaving for 30 seconds, stirring and repeating until melted. Then use a toothpick to draw a red mouth OR use the candy decorating pen to draw one in.
  9. Use the black decorating pen to draw on whiskers.
  10. Place the cookie sheet with completed bunnies in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to allow the candy to set.
