Chocolate Bunny Cookies with Cotton “Candy” Tails

cotton tails 1

I’ve made these Chocolate Bunny Cookies with Cotton “Candy” Tails  twice now.  They were really good, but the first time I totally messed them up by trying to pour melted chocolate on them! 😛  The taste was not affected thankfully.  It’s so rough being a food blogger. LOL

 These are just SO adorable.  I love the little tails made of cotton candy!   These are sure to be a hit with everyone!!!

The chocolate cookie recipe is one that I adapted from an older Better Crocker recipe for “Scotch Cookies”.   I was REALLY skeptical of the cookie when I looked at the ingredients.  No eggs and no baking soda /powder.  Just butter, sugar and flour.  I added in some cocoa and more butter to make them chocolate… Wow is all I have to say.  They came out tasting like REALLY dark chocolate (think oreo without the filling), but if you like a sweeter cookie use 1-2 Tbsp. less.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Bunny Cookies {with Cotton "Candy" Tails}!

These are crisp and melt in your mouth!


  • 4 Tbsp . Cocoa powder, Use 1-2 Tbsp. less if you don't like really dark chocolate and also use 1 Tbsp. Less butter
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 cups all purpose flour
  • 8 Tbsp . salted Butter softened, You may need 2 more Tbsp. if your dough is too crumbly
  • a little nutella and cotton candy for the tails, or melted chocolate in place of nutella
  • Since these cookies are like an oreo without the cream part... consider having some nutella, milk or other sweet dip to go with them)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream sugar and butter together. Add flour and cocoa powder and mix until dough comes together and is easy to roll out. You may need 1-2 Tbsp. more butter if the dough is too crumbly. Roll out on a flat surface that has been dusted with a little cocoa powder. Cut out small shapes like bunnies and carefully use a spatula to transport them to a cookie sheet. This dough will break if handled to much so be careful.
  2. Bake for about 20 minutes or until set. Once they are out of the oven let them sit on the cookie sheet until they are cool to the touch. This is a very important step because if you try to take them off too early they will crumble to pieces, but after letting them cool down they will be nice and hard.
  3. Once they are cooled down put a little nutella on the bunny bums with a toothpick. Then roll a small amount of cotton candy to look like a tail and stick it onto the nutella. Repeat for each cookie and then they are ready. Enjoy!
