Pillsbury™ Crescent Roll Easter Bunnies

Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 30 min
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 count) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Original Crescents
  • Assorted coloured candy melts
  • 1 tub Betty Crocker™ Whipped Vanilla Frosting
  • 1/4 cup shredded sweetened desiccated coconut
  • toothpicks
  • Decorations (such as sprinkles or pink edible balls)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Remove the crescent rolls from the packaging and separate them at the perforated line.
  3. Squish the pieces into a ball and then using both hands, roll into a 6-8” long log.
  4. Lie one long strand in a ‘U’ shape on the work surface. Hold one end in each hand and cross over each other twice to form a twist, leaving a small loop at the bottom to form the body and to leave a hole for the tail.
  5. Place onto the baking tray for 12 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly.
  6. Meanwhile, place the candy melts into heatproof bowls. Microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
  7. Dip the twisted “bunnies” halfway into the coloured candy melts. Place onto the baking tray allowing the melts to dry completely. Repeat with remaining crescent bunnies, using a variety of colours.
  8. Fill the frosting into a piping bag fitted with desired nozzle and pipe tails onto the crescent bunnies. Sprinkle with coconut and decorate with pink candy balls or sprinkles.
