I made these simple Bunny Cake Pops for the kids for Easter weekend last year, but they can be a cute treat any time of the year. As an added bonus they are surprisingly easy to make.
These cute little Bunny Cake Pops almost look too good to eat! Well almost, they are after all made of cake and candy! The simplicity of making them is all in the marshmallow ears.
They also make a lovely alternative to the classic Easter egg. If you want to give them a go, then here is how I made them.

How to Make the Bunny Cake Pops
These bunny cake pops were really easy to make. I started by making the little cake pops using my cool American Originals cake pop maker that I got for Christmas.
I used the recipe for chocolate cake pops that came with the instructions. It produces perfectly round little sponge cakes which can be turned into any cake pop.
To Decorate the Bunny Cake Pops You Will Need:
- White candy melts (or baby pink if you prefer pink bunnies)
- Fun boxes of smarties
- Chocolate balls
- Large marshmallows
- Pink sugar sand
- Cake pop cakes (see above)
- Cake pop sticks
- Some polystyrene to stand the cake pops in whilst drying
How I Made Them
- Melt a small amount of white candy melts in the microwave following manufacturers instructions.
- Dip the end of the cake pop sticks into the candy melt before inserting them into the cakes. Refrigerate until set.
- Whilst you are waiting get together the decorations for the features. I used pink and purple mini smarties for noses and little chocolate balls for eyes.
- For the ears cut the marshmallows diagonally with some clean scissors, and dip the cut surfaces into pink sugar sand. Set the decorations to one side.
- Melt the white candy melts in a bowl following the manufacturers instructions.
- Cover each cake pop with candy melt. I found the easiest way to do this was by twisting slowly and using a spoon to help smooth them off. I suspect they may be better ways, but I wasn’t after perfection.
- Pop the cake pop in some polystyrene to stand it upright whilst it dries.
- Place a smartie for the rabbit’s nose and 2 chocolate balls for eyes. I had to use a cocktail stick snapped in half to secure the ears to the cake pop (make sure you remove these before giving the cake pops to very young children!).
- Then just leave to dry. As I said mine were far from perfect, but they made cute little cake pops that the kids loved, and tasted delicious!

Whilst I have taken time to try and be as accurate as possible, some of the quantities are approximate. I am always keen to learn, so if you think the recipe can be improved upon please take the time to comment below.
