How to Make a Sugar-Coookie Easter Bunny HouseThink outside the Easter basket this holiday and make a sugar-cookie bunny hutch to hold all your favorite candies and chocolates (thanks to a detachable roof). These step-by-step photo how-tos will make baking and building this cookie creation a fun activity for the whole family. Kids can help mix the dough, hold the paper templates on the dough while adults cut, and cut out the cookies with cookie cutters.

You will need a few special items like parchment paper, ruler, scissors, rolling pin, pizza cutter, cookie cutters, and disposable pastry bags plus small and medium decorating tips. Make an easy sugar-cookie dough to form the base, roof and walls plus smaller sugar cookies in fun Easter shapes.

After baking all the pieces, assemble the house, using royal icing as glue. Hold the pieces for a few seconds, until they can stand on their own.

Use Easter candy, such as pastel jelly beans, small foil-wrapped chocolate eggs and bunnies, small peanut butter cups, colored mini marshmallows, marshmallow chicks and sanding sugar to decorate your house. You’ll also need royal icing and coconut grass (a combination of shredded sweetened coconut and green food coloring). Use thin icing for piping lines and decorations, and thick icing to glue heavy pieces of candy to the sides and roof of the house. To make a grassy yard, spread a thin layer of icing with a butter knife around the base of the house, and press some of the coconut grass into the icing. Fill the house with candy and cookies (make sure the icing has set). Already mastered a gingerbread house for Christmas? It’s time to try your skills at this Easter masterpiece.
