Bunny Puffs

I wish you could have all been here when I took these out of the oven so that you could have heard my hysterical laughter!  My son Zach put it best as he walked by, took one look at the so called “Bunny Puffs” and said, very dryly, “they look like goat puffs” and sadly, he was right!  The picture above is from the Pillsbury website, the picture below is a picture of my goat puffs but I think the one on the left looks like a dog and the one on the right looks like a mutant bunny but only if you squint!  Anyway, they taste great and if you can figure out how to make them look like bunnies, please share the secret with me!  🙂

1 (8 oz) can Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

8 miniature chocolate covered peanut  butter cup candies, unwrapped (mini Reeses)

8 white miniature marshmallows, cut in half

4 pink miniature marshmallows, cut in half (didn’t have these for the noses so used chocolate chips)

16 blue miniature candy coated semi sweet chocolate baking bits (mini M & M’s)

1  Heat oven to 375.  Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper, spray paper with cooking spray (you don’t need to spray the parchment paper with cooking spray).

2  Unroll dough and separate into 8 triangles.  Place 1 peanut butter cup in center of 1 triangle.  Gently stretch corners closest to and farthest from cup together at top of cup, pinching edges together to seal around cup.  Pull up third corner, firmly pinch edges to seal.  Place on cookie sheet, twist 2 longest tips of dough to make ears.  If desired, bend down longer ear.  Repeat with remaining dough triangles and peanut butter cups, shaping and trimming dough as needed for desired shape.

3  Bake 8 – 9 minutes or until puffs begin to brown.  Place 2 white miniature marshmallows halves (for eyes ) and 1 pink marshmallow half on center of each for bunny nose.  Bake 1 – 2 minutes longer or until puffs are golden brown and marshmallows are slightly puffed.

4  For eyes, immediately place 2 blue baking bits on white miniature marshmallows for pupil, remove puffs to cooling racks.
