Instructions to Make Bunny Tails
Making this Easter Bunny Tails recipe takes less than ten minutes. It’s as easy as cutting out 1-inch rounds from the biscuit dough, cooking them in veggie oil, then rolling them in a sweetened glaze and coconut shreds.
Tips for Making Easter Bunny Tails
If you don’t have a 1 inch round cookie cutter, use the cap to a bottle (such as olive oil)!
After cooking the donut rounds, be sure to let them cool completely on a plate before dipping and rolling.
Use a spoon to dip the donut rounds in the sweetened glaze. This makes it a lot easier and a lot less messy!
Be sure to use a shallow bowl for the coconut so you can easily roll the glazed tails around until they are completely covered. I used a simple pasta bowl.
Place the coconut-covered Easter Bunny Tails about 1-inch apart on a piece of parchment paper to set. This takes about 15 minutes.
And that’s it! Your fun and fuzzy Bunny Tails are finished and ready to eat! Aren’t they precious?!
Printable Bunny Tails Recipe
I hope you enjoy these rabbit tails as much as I did! Here is the handy-dandy printable version of this Easter Bunny Tails recipe, followed by more tasty and easy Easter and spring recipes and crafts.
- 1 can Refrigerated Biscuits
- 2 cups Powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoons Milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 3 cups Sweetened coconut flakes
- 1 cup Vegetable oil for frying
- Pour the vegetable oil into a sauce pan and place on stove over medium-high heat.
- Remove the biscuits from the can and lay them on a cutting board. Using a 1 inch round cookie cutter, cut circles from each biscuit. You should be able to get 4 circles from each biscuit. If you don't have a cookie cutter, a bottle cap (such as one from a bottle of olive oil) would work as well.
- Carefully place 4-6 of the donut rounds into the oil. Once one side is golden brown, use tongs to flip and fry the other side. When finished, remove from oil and place on a plate to cool.
- To make the glaze, add the milk, vanilla and powdered sugar to a shallow bowl, and mix until combined.
- In a second shallow bowl, add the sweetened coconut shreds.
- Dip each donut round into the glaze and then roll it around in the coconut until covered. Place on parchment paper to set.
