Springtime Easter Bonnets

Springtime Easter BonnetsThese "dressed-up" holiday cookies are the "tops" of the season—they're almost too cute too eat!

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (16.5-ounce) package NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough
1 (12-ounce) container prepared whipped white frosting
Food coloring
6 to 8 pieces WONKA® LAFFY TAFFY®, any flavor
12 large marshmallows, cut in half
Toll House Limited Edition Pink & Yellow Mixed Mini Morsel Toppers
Assorted colored sprinkles and/or sugars

Cooking Directions:

  1. Prepare cookies as directed on package. Cool completely.
  2. Divide frosting into smaller bowls. Tint frosting to desired shades with food coloring.
  3. To Make Bonnet Bands: Gently stretch and mold each piece of Laffy Taffy into a 6-inch x 1-inch rectangle. A rolling pin can be used to flatten if easier. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut into 1/4-inch bands. Keep covered to keep bands from drying out.
  4. To Assemble Bonnets: Spread frosting over cookies. Place a half marshmallow in the center of each frosted cookie. Spread tops and side of marshmallows with frosting, if desired. Wrap Laffy Taffy band around base of hats; gently pinch or twist band close to hat base. Sprinkle bonnets with sprinkles, sugars and/or Toppers.

Makes 24 bonnets.

Tip: WONKA® NERDS® Rope cut into 4-inch pieces can also be used for the hat bands.
