These easier-than-they-look Easter treats are almost too cute to eat! Prep is a breeze when you start with a box of Betty Crocker™ cake mix.

Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ white or yellow cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
1
container Betty Crocker™ Whipped vanilla frosting
18
miniature marshmallows
1 1/2
cups shredded coconut
6
oz vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark), chopped
Pink food color

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350° F. Place a paper baking cup in each of 18 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2 Make cake batter as directed on box. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 30 minutes.
  • 3 Frost cooled cupcakes with frosting. Place miniature marshmallow on center of each cupcake. Press coconut on top of each cupcake around marshmallow, leaving marshmallow clearly visible.
  • 4 Microwave candy coating in microwavable bowl uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes or until completely melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Place piece of foil or waxed paper on flat surface. Use 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon to spoon 36 oval-shaped dollops of melted coating onto foil. Cool until set, about 5 minutes.
  • 5 Use remaining coating to make pink pads of bunny feet; add 1 drop food color. If coating gets hard, pop it into microwave 10 to 20 seconds. Place in resealable food-storage plastic bag, and cut very small end off corner of bag. Pipe pink pads of feet onto white dollops. Cool completely, about 5 minutes.
  • 6 Gently peel bunny feet off foil or waxed paper. Place 2 bunny feet onto each cupcake, and serve.
Tips  

This recipe makes 18 cupcakes instead of the standard 24. We used additional batter in each of our 18 cupcakes to get a more rounded bunny butt look, but you can still make the standard 24, if desired. Adjust other ingredients as necessary to account for additional cupcakes.

Instead of using candy coating to make bunny feet, use white chocolate-covered almonds or other small oval-shaped candies.
