easter bunny rabbit macarons.

A cute, bunny shaped treat for Easter. I just couldn't resist creating some rabbit shaped macarons for the occasion, filled with moreish Nutella chocolate spread. I actually made these for a bunny mad bride to be last year and have waited until the run up to Easter to share these little sweeties with you. I may just be tempted to make them again myself...

Shopping list.
(Make 12 medium or 24 mini macarons)
Two egg whites, at room temperature
75g caster sugar
90g icing sugar, sieved
75g almonds, sieved until fine with lumps discarded
Milk chocolate spread
Edible paint and food colouring pens

Firstly, make your macarons according to my step by step tutorial. I didn't use any food colouring and kept them plain - but you could do brown, grey or even pink! I piped half the mix as a circle for the back and the others with ears.

When baked and cooled, draw your little bunny face on half the macarons and allow to dry. Next, pipe some milk chocolate spread into the plain side and carefully put together to make a full bunny macaron.

Have you been baking for Easter? What colour and flavour bunny macarons would you make?

If you like these you might like my unicorn or bear macarons - or if you're feeling festive then my Creme Egg macarons!
