Scoop 1/4 cup or (fill 2/3 full) of the mixture into cupcake liners, lined with cocoa powder.
Bake in a 375*F. oven for 11-15 minutes, cook longer if you want a firmer muffin but the center of the muffins are supposed to be moist/gooey.
Allow muffins to cool, frost muffins and add bunny to the middle of the frosted muffin and add edible grass scattering on top of the frosting. (Cut edible grass as desired.).
