Lizard gets spoiled every holiday. She’s almost an ‘only child’ to her parents, and for one set of grandparents she is the only grandchild they’ll likely get. I recall one Christmas where those grandparents got her so many gifts that she needed a break half way through because she was getting bored. Allow me to repeat that: she had so many gifts that she needed a break falf way through because she was getting bored. Talk about first world problems! But the point of this is that I like to make her stuff and make it a little different. And I know her type of childish humour.
These are chocolate chip Cookies, with icing on top. Super simple, and also yummy. But as you can see, the cookies are shaped like bunny butts. Because what child wouldn’t find eating a butt a funny thing. I hope to get a little giggle from her at least. Plus, it’s super cute and pretty still, despite the end of the bunny I’ve chosen to imitate.
I’ve used a cookie recipe from theviewfromgreatislandand following the recipe you may see how I constructed these cookies.
- ¼ cup Nuttelex
- 2 big TB peanut butter
- 2 big TB icing sugar
- 2/3 cup (75g) regular flour
- Pinch of salt
- ¾ cup chocolate chips
- In a mixing bowl, cream together the margarine and peanut butter. Slowly beat in the sugar, flour and salt. Stir in the chocolate.
- Roll the dough out into a sausage. If you are making bunnies, part the dough in half and make one roll tinner and smaller (for the feet).
- Wrap that sausage in plastic-wrap and then refrigerate for 2 hours. This is important! Note: you could also freeze until you have cookie cravings
- Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray. Slice the sausage into the amount of cookies you desire – I went to 2cm thickness.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes. You’ll need to vary that if you make a bigger cookie. When ready, allow to cool on a wire rack completely before choosing to decorate (I’m not a biscuit decorating person, but I have plans for this particular cookie!)
- Pink food colouring
- Mini marshmallows
- 2 cups icing sugar
