Easy Bunny Shaped Turtle Cookies Recipe for an Easter Treat {Made with Rolo Caramels} | Kid Friendly Things To Do

Easy to make Bunny-Shaped Turtles for an fun Easter Treat

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 dozen soft Milk Chocolate Caramels – like Rolos
  • bag of pecan halves
  • 1 package of fudge cookies – there are lots of variations of fudge cookies, some have peanut butter, some mint, some plain
  • Spring colored Milk Chocolate M&Ms

Extra equipment:

  • A baking sheet lined with parchment paper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees
  • Place your caramel candies on the parchment paper lined baking sheet
  • Pop that in the oven for 3-5 minutes, or until the candies are warmed up enough to start to soften even more and melt the caramel
  • Take that out of the oven and place 2 pecan halves on each caramel candy – at the top to look like bunny ears
  • While the candies are still warm, place the cookies on top
  • If you moved quick enough the fudge on top of the cookies will be melting from the warmth of the Rolo Candy and you can place an M&M on the center of the cookie
  • If the fudge cookie is not melted on top, then pop the cookie turtle into the oven for about 30 seconds or until you see the fudge is shiny and melting 
  • Place an M&M in the center of the fudge cookie 
  • Let the cookies sit at room temperature so the chocolate can dry and harden again

Notes

The pecans need to be placed into the Rolo Candy far enough to give them support from the caramel. If the pecans aren’t secure, you’ll run the risk of a bunny ear popping off. 

You can substitute Rolos with any soft caramel and chocolate candy, like caramel Hershey Kiss
