Bunny Hug Cookies
As the kids have endless love for cute little sweet foods, I love making different types for mine. These Bunny Hug Cookies are what I’ve tried recently. They’re gingerbread cookies made into bunny hug-shape and featured with a mini cadbury egg at the center of the arms. My kids just get excited when eating them. They even did the preparation with me and of course, we had a lot of fun together.

If you are finding something sweet and fun to eat to make for your kids, just give these bunny hug cookies a go.
3 c. all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 large egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tbsp. milk
Cadbury Mini Eggs
3″ gingerbread cookie cutter
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
- Add flour, baking powder, and salt to a large bowl, whisk to combine.
- In a large bowl using a hand mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer), beat butter and sugar until fluffy and pale in color.
- Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla until combined, then gradually add in flour mixture until totally combined.
- Form into a disk and wrap in plastic. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly flour a clean work surface and roll out dough until 1/8” thick. Cut out gingerbread shapes (upside-down, they will be bunnies!) and transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets.
- Lay a mini cadbury egg into the center of the arms and gently place arms around the edges of the egg. (They won’t wrap around the egg completely.) Use a tootpick to poke eyes and nose.
- Bake until edges are lightly golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
