Hello friends, I have a treat for you today – an edible one just in time for Easter. My friend Matthew Mead, stylist, author, home decor design expert, and former style editor of Country Home magazine sent me this creative and simple idea to share with you for serving a sweet dessert on Easter Sunday. It’s Bunny Ears Mousse!

Please welcome back Matthew Mead and his recipe for Bunny Ears Mousse.

“I am a huge fan of innovation and a bigger fan of Trader Joe’s. I am always out looking for new ideas that are quick, simple and eye catching to bring to the dining room. This Easter I am making these charming mousse cups inspired by Palmiers Cookies that look just like bunny ears. With a few pantry supplies and some creativity you can create these adorable desserts yourself.

You Will Need: Two packages of mousse mix, select from white chocolate, vanilla, or milk chocolate (we used Dr. Oetker brand) and prepare according to package directions; 2 recipes of whipped cream, prepared (see below); angel hair pasta; mini marshmallows; Palmier cookies from Trader Joe’s*; colored icing (optional); jelly beans and sprinkles for garnish (if desired).

*If there is no Trader Joe’s near you, make your own Palmiers ear shaped cookies with several recipes available online.

Many of you wanted to know about the color on the chandelier – I used a spray paint in the color ‘Catalina Mist’ by Krylon to change it from dark bronze to a minty aqua blue. The round light bulbs can be found at Home Depot. I used the same spray paint to cover the three frames that hang above the bed (frames found at Michaels.)

The fabrics on the window panels and bench were a simple design I created last year for her room and printed over at Spoonflower. I’m not sure yet if these patterns will be available this summer. Thanks to Camille for sharing that the Moroccan print lavender rug is also available at Overstock.
