  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Unroll dough; separate into 8 triangles.
  • 2
    Place 2 candies on shortest side of each triangle, and roll dough into ball to within 4 1/2 inches from opposite point; pinch openings to completely enclose candies. Turn over; place on cookie sheet.
  • 3
    Using pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut unrolled portion of dough to make two ears, starting at point of triangle and cutting toward rolled portion.
  • 4
    Using finger, press indentation into bottom half of each ear; fold tops of ears down. Add small amount of nonpareils to indented portion of dough, and press heart onto stuffed dough portion for nose.
  • 5
    Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • Dough should not be stretched too thin when rolling dough around candies, and openings should be completely sealed around candies before baking.
  • A great way to use up extra chocolate Easter candy is to substitute the candies with unwrapped chocolate eggs or even a tablespoon of chocolate chips. The chocolate eggs with candy shells do not work as well in this recipe.
  • Have fun with the kids and have them help “decorate” their bunnies before baking.
