Ingredients

Cream Puffs

1 cup water

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

Filling

1 (3.3-ounce) package white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix

1 1/4 cups cold milk

1 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream, whipped

Decorations

Large marshmallows

Decorator sugar

Toothpicks

Vanilla-flavored candy-coating (almond bark), melted

Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Black string licorice, cut into thin 3/4-inch strips

Small round pink candies, such as mini candy-covered chocolate pieces

Powdered sugar, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine water and butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 4-7 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil.

  3. STEP 3

    Reduce heat to low; stir in flour vigorously until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a ball. Remove from heat. Beat in 1 egg at a time until mixture is smooth.

  4. STEP 4

    Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, 3 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 35-40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Pierce each puff gently with fork to allow steam to escape. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Prepare pudding mix, using 1 1/4 cups milk, as directed on package. After pudding is set, gently stir in whipped cream. Cover; refrigerate up to 4 hours or until serving time.

  6. STEP 6

    Create bunnies by cutting off cream puff tops. Cut large marshmallows crosswise into 3 pieces. Dip cut-sides into decorator sugar for ears. Using toothpicks, attach sugared marshmallows into top of cream puff for ears. Use melted candy coating to attach chocolate chips for eyes.

  7. STEP 7

    Fill bottom half of cream puff with 1/3 cup filling just before serving. Press licorice strips for whiskers and pink candies for nose into filling. Place decorated cream puff top over filling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
