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!
