Spring. It’s just a week away, friends! Do you feel relief like I do? Like, we made it through another winter relatively unscathed?
With the exception of this weekend when we had SNOW, I’ve been feeling very much in the Spring-y mood.
So, while the white stuff was flying, I spent the weekend snuggled up inside with a couple of bunnies of the fudgy variety. I totally made that up. I didn’t totally make up this craft, though. I saw a similar idea for cookie cutter fudge on everyone’s funnest inspiration board: Pinterest.
But! My Easter Cookie Cutter gifts come complete with COTTON CANDY BUNNY TAILS. Yep, you read that correctly.
Easter Cookie Cutter Gifts
These white chocolate fudge bunnies would be so fun to add to Easter gift baskets, wouldn’t they? Here’s what you need to make your own:
- Any metal or plastic cookie cutters. I used cutters similar to these Wilton Easter Bunny cookie cutters (affiliate link)
- Piping bags or you can use baggies and snip off a corner
- Assorted sprinkles
- Cotton candy
For the Fudge:
- 10 oz white chocolate chips. I used Ghirardelli white baking chips.
- 10 oz sweetened condensed milk (note: I used fat free because it’s what I had on hand-the taste was fine but it’s a caramel-y color so your fudge won’t be white-I added some Wilton food coloring paste to mine)
- pinch of salt
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and cutters. Set aside.
Pour white chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Add the sweetened condensed milk and microwave for 1 minute. Remove bowl and stir to completely melt the chips. Toss in the salt and add the food coloring if using and stir to combine. Pour into piping bag or baggie. Snip off the tip of the piping bag or the corner of the baggie.
Fill each cookie cutter with the fudge. Add sprinkles and cotton candy bunny tails before the fudge sets. Refrigerate for at least an hour or until fudge is set.
Fudgy Easter Cookie Cutter Gifts
Wrap fudge, cookie cutter and all, in cellophane bags and secure with ribbons or use my DIY Twist Ties video to make your own adorable twist ties with pretty patterned paper and floral wire. They’re so simple to make and take just a couple of minutes.
Add green crinkly packaging papers to your baskets and you’re all set. How cute are these homemade Easter Cookie Cutter baskets? Okay, you don’t really have to tel me how cute they are. But, for reals: teacher gifts? Coworker treats? Blogger buddy gifts? So many ways to give em and get lots of oohs and aahhhs and, of course, the sweet satisfaction of sharing and giving-that’s a good feeling, too.
