Easy Snowball Bunnies and Other Easter Treats

This is a really quick and easy recipe for an Easter treat (more a craft really) which kids will love to make and eat.

It’s so simple, all you need are a few shop bought ingredients and you are good to go. Snowballs are made to look like little bunny rabbits with the addition of some foam bananas and a pink jellybean or Skittle. I actually got something called Vimto Skidaddles(?) or similar, which were exactly like a Vimto flavoured skittle.

You can plunge the banana into the top of the snowball, or like I did, cut a little bit off the end and insert half a toothpick into the ‘nana. Leave a bit of toothpick sticking out and use that to attach it to the snowball.

For the nose, I used the end of a teaspoon to make a little whole for the pink sweet to go in.
That’s it really. You could attach eyes, but I like the ‘abstract’ look.

Remember, if using toothpicks, take them out before giving to children to eat.

I'm entering these Snowball Bunnies into this month' Treat Petite, hosted by Kat, The Baking Explorer. The theme this month is Easter and Spring.

Here are some of my past Easter treat ideas for you.

Happy Easter when it arrives.


  1. I love all the Easter treats on this page - old and new! They are all so fun and colourful, the snowball bunnies make a great addition to the collection.

  2. What a fabulous selection of really inventive and fun Easter Treats. I love snowballs, I do try to resist, so these bunnies are perfect. GG

    1. Thanks GG - I do try and be a bit inventive, so I'm glad you like them x

  3. Aww so cute and so simple. My boys would love these (and I'd quite like to try one too as I'm a bit of a fan of snowballs and foam bananas :-)

  4. Great idea Stuart. So cute and so simple! It's fun seeing some of your old Easter treats again too.... Those fried egg meringue cookies are inspired!
    I hope you had a fantastic Easter xx
