Easter Bunny Marshmallow Pops! It doesn’t get any cuter. Nestled into a terra cotta pot with some paper shred, they’re darling on a dessert table.
And these marshmallow pops aren’t necessarily one of those projects where you’re going to tear your hair out making them. It’s pretty much a candy dip and sticking some ears on top. But read thoroughly through the directions before you begin. The gum past needs some time to harden before use, so these bunny pops aren’t necessarily a last minute project!

How to make Easter Bunny Marshmallow Pops
Making these marshmallow pops is fairly easy, even if you aren’t familiar with all the ingredients. Gum paste is rather like play-dough to work with with the added benefit of hardening really well when left to dry. If you can pick up one of the long rectangular pieces of Styrofoam from the Dollar Tree, that usually works perfect for projects like this where you need a place for your candy coated pops to dry for a few minutes!
PRO TIP ON CANDY MELTS: All melts are not created equal! I really like CandiQuik (usually in the grocery store) and Merckens (find it here) because they tend not to seize when you melt them in the microwave. I’m a lazy baker/candy maker so I go for easy every time, and the brands you can buy at the craft stores tend to get crumbly instead of melty smooth when they get nuked. Some brands cost a bit more, but believe me when I say they’re worth paying for so you’re not buying multiple bags to get one good pot of candy melt!
You’ll also note the complete lack of gluten in these marshmallow pops. They’re a perfect gluten-free treat for Easter!
