Bunny S'mores | Recipe | Homemade S'mores

I'm finally done with our Easter party favors!  Technically, these are only a part of the favors, but at least I'm done with this part!!  In case you weren't able to figure it from previous posts, surprise.  They're bunny s'mores.

Truth time - they were time consuming.  BUT - worth it, in my opinion.  So much fun making the marshmallows.  Easy to make the cookies.  The hardest part was not eating everything before assembling the s'mores!

Random thought: I don't think I mentioned this before, but I bought the cookie cutter from Sur La Table for $1.

A few tips on dipping the chocolate/making the s'mores:
  • Melt small amounts of chocolate at a time.  The less chocolate you have in your bowl to work with, the easier it is to dip and coat your graham crackers.  If there's too much chocolate in the bowl, the cracker will have a ton of chocolate that needs to drip off and it becomes an unnecessary pain.
  • Use two forks to dip, flip and transfer the crackers. 
  • If you find that there is way too much chocolate on the graham crackers and it's not dripping the way it should, hold the cracker with your fingers (after you've washed your hands thoroughly) and use the back of a fork to lightly scrape off some of the excess chocolate
  • Lay the dipped crackers on parchment paper, not a Silpat, otherwise the under surface will have a criss-cross pattern and will not be smooth.  (Yes, I figured this out the hard way, but luckily sooner than later.)

Have fun with these!  It's marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate.  You can't go wrong!  Wrap a couple up in a treat bag and tie with a bow.  Give these away as favors or Easter gifts.

Bunny S'mores Recipe
Yields: 20 s'mores

20 homemade bunny marshmallows
40 homemade bunny graham crackers
15 oz dark chocolate chips
2 oz white chocolate chips, approx 10-15 chips

1. Melt a portion of the dark chocolate in a double-broiler.  To do this, place a small amount of water in a pot and simmer.  Place a bowl that fits securely over the pot on the pot.  The heat from the pot should reach the bowl, but the water should not.  Place some of the dark chocolate chips into the bowl and stir with a rubber spatula until all of the chips are melted.
2. Dip graham crackers into the chocolate and coat completely, using two forks.  Lift the cracker and let any excess chocolate drip off.  Place dipped cracker on a sheet of parchment paper.
3. Place one bunny marshmallow on top of dipped cracker.
4. Dip a second cracker and place on top of the marshmallow.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 until all s'mores have been made.  Continue to melt dark chocolate as needed.
6. Cover s'mores with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until chocolate is cooled and has set, 1 hour up to overnight.
7. Remove from refrigerator.  Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave in 10 second increments until chocolate has melted.  Stir chocolate between increments.
8. Using a small cooking paint brush, such as those used for cookie making, paint a white dot onto the s'mores to make a cotton-tail.  Rotate the brush before lifting off the s'more so a tip doesn't form and the tail is rounded.
9. Allow tails to dry at room temperature, 15 minutes.
