Following is a delicious Easter Recipe and guest post
by Dorothy at Crazy for Crust… enjoy!!

Hi, I’m Dorothy from Crazy for Crust. I’m so excited to be here today at The Frugal Girls!

It’s almost Easter and this time of year I get obsessed with two things: coconut and cute desserts. The cuter the better! And these Marshmallow Coconut Bunny Tails certainly fit the bill.

I combined marshmallow cream with coconut and some other {totally fat-free, ha ha ha} ingredients to make a truffle. Then, they’re rolled in shredded coconut and poof! You have a super cute Easter dessert: Bunny Tails! Something totally simple that will be a huge hit on your Easter dessert table. They’re super sweet and go down really, really easy.

And, even better, you can totally make them ahead of time. I froze them to get them out of my site (which never works since I know they’re there) and they are even good straight from the freezer!

Marshmallow Coconut Bunny Tails
by: Crazy for Crust

1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
2 tablespoons softened butter
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
About 2 cups coconut, divided
1 tablespoon milk (fat-free or coconut milk)

  1. If you wish, place coconut in a food processor and pulse until the shreds are smaller. I like to do this because that way the coconut is not as stringy. Set aside.
  2. Beat fluff and butter with a hand mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, and 3/4 cup coconut. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Place remaining coconut in a small bowl. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. Remove marshmallow mixture from refrigerator. Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, drop scoops of the mixture into the bowl of coconut. Roll gently to coat. Place on cookie sheet. Chill before serving. The balls won’t be firm, so keep them chilled until ready to serve.

Yield: 12 bunny tails
