How cute are these?! And you won’t believe how easy they are!
The secret to these bunny butt cookies is the bunny feet. They’re made of sugar and come ready to go. Thank you, Wilton!
They’re seasonal, so as soon as you see them grab some packages. I got these over by the seasonal Easter stuff at Walmart, you can also find them here.
Each package makes 12 cookies so for this recipe you’ll need 2 packages.
Start by baking the cookies according to the instructions on the package, except roll the dough in balls first. It comes in a kind of weird rectangular shape and rolling it first helps them come out nice and round.
Of course I’ll be using one of my favorite products, these parchment baking sheets.
The cookies don’t stick and clean up is a breeze. Plus, I can just drag the whole sheet, cookies and all, right on to the cooling rack.
Be sure to allow time for the cookies to cool. If you try to frost them when they’re even a little warm, the frosting (and everything on it) will slide off.
When the cookies are cool go ahead and frost them. I never measure, I just spread some on until it looks good. It’s probably around a tablespoon or so.
Just do a few at a time so that the frosting doesn’t set up before you have time to decorate them.
I did some with coconut butts and sprinkle tails and some with coconut tails and plain butts. I love the mixture of textures but, by all means, do yours all the same if you like.
Wow, that’s way more “butts” than I ever thought I would be putting in a recipe post!
So…frost 3 or 4 cookies and stick on the feet.
Dab just a tiny bit of frosting on the end of a mini marshmallow.
Put some coconut in a small bowl and your sprinkles (if you’re using them) in another, dip the marshmallow in. Really press it so the coconut or sprinkles stay on.
Stick it, decoration side up, just a little above center of the cookie.
Then finish your bunny butt cookies with some more coconut or leave them plain.
Here are a couple of tips for decorating your cookies:
- Just do a few at a time
- Put the feet and tail on before the coconut
- Leave enough space between the feet and above the tail to get some coconut there
- These cookies are easy, but take some time to cool and decorate so leave yourself plenty of time
There now, didn’t I promise they’d be easy?

FYI, leftover frosting is awesome sandwiched between a couple of graham crackers!
And, in case you’re curious, I got the edible grass and carrot decorations for the picture in the same place as the bunny feet.
