An Easter-Favorite Treat

These Easter paw print cookies are unlike anything I have seen on the internet! They were inspired by a common bear paw print version on a cupcake I saw around Christmas time. This idea got me thinking – why not remake the bear print ones as an Easter bunny print cookie!

What’s fun about these bunny print cookies is how versatile this recipe is. You can dress these cookies as much or as little as you want. 

Another fabulous fact about this Easter bunny cookie idea is that the directions are simple, from gathering the ingredients, to decorating them. They turn out cute as a button every time.

Ingredients Needed

Exact measurements can be found in the printable recipe card below.

  • Prepared Sugar Cookies: They are great to use, especially if you don’t have all the ingredients to bake sugar cookies or are not a baker.
  • Shredded Coconut: You can shred it fresh, or you can buy it prepared.
  • Vanilla Frosting: To save time, pick up a jar from the grocery store, or whip it up fresh at home.
  • Food Coloring: Any food coloring that is suitable for use with coconut is acceptable. Gel or liquid food coloring work well.
  • Sprinkles: This is a chance to have some fun and get cute pastel colors to match the Easter theme.
  • Mini White Candy Melt Wafers: Any brand works well for this Easter bunny print cookie recipe.
  • White Chocolate Chips: They are the finishing touch to make these Easter bunny cookies come to life.

Cookie Baking Tips for Easter Bunny Print Cookies

  • Homemade versus Store-bought: If you do not prefer store-bought or packaged sugar cookies, you can use your favorite recipe and bake your own cookies ahead of time.
  • Any Frosting Works:. Whether it is from the store or made at home, either option will work perfectly to help decorate these sugary Easter cookies.
  • Be Generous with the Icing: When icing the cookies, make sure to spread a relatively thick layer on them. This will allow you to press the candy wafer and the chocolate chips into it so they stay in place. 

Use Your Pantry for Inspiration!

  1. Add food coloring to the shredded coconuts in your food processor until it has reached your preferred texture and color.
  2. Dip cookies in coconut batter and decorate with sprinkles, then use the candy wafers and chocolate chips to create the cute bunny prints.

Decorating Tips for Easy Bunny Print Cookies

  • Any type of shredded coconut can be used for this recipe. Sweetened or unsweetened, whichever you prefer!
  • I suggest you should make three different coconut batter colors for these bunny print cookies, but you can use as many or as few colors as you wish. Use about ½ cup coconut for each batter mixture. Any less makes it hard to “dip” the cookie.
  • I prefer using vanilla frosting for these cookies, but please experiment with different frosting flavors! You can also try different colored frosting.

How to Store Easter Bunny Print Cookies

Sugar cookies are a popular treat with my family, so I know these Easter bunny print cookies will be gobbled up quickly! If, by chance, they are not, I can store them so we can eat them on another day. 

Unfortunately, these cute Easter cookies can’t be put in the fridge or freezer because of the shredded coconuts. The moister will affect their texture.

What you can do to keep them fresh is to store these cookies at room temperature in an airtight container for up to three days. If left out any longer, these cookies will lose moisture and become hard and dry. 


Can I substitute the candy melt wafers for something else?

Sure! If you don’t have candy melt wafers on hand, other white chocolate or candy options can work as a substitute.

Are there any alternatives to mini white chocolate chips for the bunny toes?

If you don’t have white chocolate chips, you can replace them with other small candy pieces or icing decorations.

Can I make the colored coconut in advance?

Yes, you can prepare the colored coconut in advance and store it in airtight containers until you are ready to use it.
