Last week, I was on a local lifestyle TV show and shared 3 easy ways to decorate a sugar cookie for Easter.
My kids love helping me in the kitchen, so I wanted to make some simple sugar cookies that they could help me with and this is what we came up with. The possibilities really are endless.
You can also add any candies or frosting flavors, to make your cookies a little unique.
For picture instructions on how to decorate the cookies, scroll down to the bottom of the post.
How to make bunny ears:
To make the bunny cookie, frost with white frosting, make the bunny ears (see step-by-step pics below), and add a chocolate chips for eyes and a jelly bean for the nose.
Be sure you are putting the sticky side of the marshmallow into the sprinkles, so they stick to the marshmallow easily.

Best way to dye your coconut:
To dye coconut for your other cookies, simply add 1 cup of shredded coconut to a ziploc bag. Add in 3-4 drops of food coloring, seal the bag, and shake until all the coconut has been dyed.
To make the chick sugar cookie, frost a cookie with yellow frosting. Top with yellow coconut, then use two chocolate chips for the eyes and cut a triangle out of an AirHead candy for the beak.
