I have a soft spot in my heart for fudge. I admit it.
I used to restrict making fudge only for Christmas as it was a family traditional treat. But why only Christmas! This year I have been experimenting making theme fudge for holidays and so bring on the Bunny Fudge for a homemade Easter dessert.
How To Make Bunny Fudge
The only fudge recipe I use to make Easter Bunny Fudge is the tried and true Original Fantasy Fudge Recipe. This is a never fail melt in your mouth fudge that sets well and is a biteful of creamy goodness every time.
The Original Fantasy Fudge recipe (I emphasize original as the recipe changed at some point in fudge history). Not only does the fudge set well the fudge lends itself into crafting fudge desserts such as the Easter Bunny Fudge.
Parchment or wax paper
I highly recommend metal cookie cutters. I have made Bunny Fudge with the plastic cookie cutters, but metal cookie cutters are worth the investment as the fudge tends to stick with plastic cookie cutters. I guarantee that fudge sticking to a cookie cutter will make this not a pleasant experience!!!
I have detailed how to cut fudge with cookie cutters here. There is always some trial and error depending upon the cookie cutter and the fudge used as each batch of fudge does have its’ own temperament.
I can say that is why I use my favorite fudge recipe because of its’ dependability.
Use cooking spray liberally. The metal cookie cutter should be primed with cooking spray between each cut. It is tempting I know once the assembly line starts moving to skip a spray or two. This is just like using cookie cutters and flour.
About half way through dipping each cookie cutter into flour I am tempted to cut corners and flour the cookie cutter less frequently. You may get away with it once, but it will catch up with you and a gooey mess can occur.
How To Decorate Bunny Fudge
I use my favorite cookie icing to decorate Bunny Fudge. Find the easy recipe for a royal icing type cookie icing here. This icing is very simple to make and easy create fun colors with food coloring. The fudge should be totally cooled before decorating with the cookie icing.
I usually let the fudge set then refrigerate before cutting the Bunny Fudge and decorating with my favorite cookie icing.
