Sundae, Bunny Sundae

Sundae, Bunny Sundaeeeeeeee.....any other U2 fans out there? This was running through my head all afternoon to the tune of "Sunday, Bloody Sunday". So, now it can be stuck in your head, too. You're welcome.
I originally planned these to be bunny cupcakes, but Bunny Ice Cream Sundaes are so much cooler, don't you think? (no pun intended:)) You can obviously make cupcakes w/ the same technique. However, the combination of Ice Cream and the Marshmallow Meringue is just plain fabulous. Enjoy!

Sundae, Bunny Sundaes
Ice Cream
Large Marshmallows
Pink Sugar
Icing Eyes (make your own or just use vanilla/chocolate icing)
Pink Mints or M & M's (for a nose)
Chocolate icing (for the mouth)
Licorice strings (for whiskers)
Cooked Meringue (recipe below)

Scoop ice cream into balls and place on wax paper in the freezer.

Make Meringue and frost over ice cream balls, return to freezer while you gather your "bunny ingredients".

Raid the pantry for candies, marshmallows, etc--whatever you need to make a bunny face! Cut large marshmallows in half and dip the sticky part in pink sugar to make ears. Put a small amount of chocolate icing in a ziploc bag and snip the end so you are ready to pipe out mouths.

Take frosted ice cream out of freezer, add ears, eyes, noses, whiskers, and a mouth. Return to freezer until ready to serve.

Cooked Meringue
¾ c. sugar
¾ c. Karo
3 egg whites
1 t. vanilla

Over medium heat, dissolve sugar in karo. No need to boil, just make sure sugar is dissolved. In a medium mixing bowl, beat egg whites until fluffy. Add syrup slowly to egg whites, beating continuously. Whip till light, fluffy & glossy. Add vanilla.

While you're making dessert, how about a little something healthy and delicious? I recently discovered Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt and YUM! I've always loved Greek Yogurt but this one is especially good! Seriously! Organic Greek yogurt which can be used in a variety of ways while cooking – in baking, as a substitute for sour cream, and mayonnaise, and to create tasty low-fat dishes. Greek yogurt is strained, making it thicker and more versatile in recipes than regular yogurt.
I mixed in a little ranch dressing mix to make a great carrot dip for the kids. It was a hit!

I happen to have 5 coupons for a free container of Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt, so leave a comment here and on 4/29 I'll pick five random people to mail them to! Fun! I love good mail!
