Food hack: Marshmallow bunny ears

This simple scissor trick makes the cutest marshmallow bunny ears - in seconds! They’re so simple to make and will give your Easter bakes a super fun twist

Easter marshmallow bunny ears will add a little bit of Easter magic to your cakes and bakes. They are SO simple to make but very effective, and made with just 2 ingredients! All you need is some regular-sized marshmallows, scissors, pink sprinkles (or edible glitter) and some cupcakes or cakes to pop them on top of.

The trick for getting your bunny ears perfect is to cut the marshmallow at an angle. Hold the marshmallow in one hand and the scissors in the other. Cut diagonally across the marshmallow. Squeeze the 2 pieces of marshmallow gently to give them a pointed, bunny ear shape.

Dip the sticky side (the inside of the marshmallow) onto the pink sprinkles or glitter. Make sure they’re thoroughly coated before adding to your cakes. Yes, it really is that easy!

The kids are going to love these cute little treats. You could choose pink marshmallows too and you could also try this idea with mini marshmallows using small bathroom scissors (cleaned thoroughly first, of course!) or giant marshmallows. The possibilities are endless!
