Chocolate Bunny Jelly Bean Cookies
- 2 cups butter
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 TBS vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 4 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 TBS corn starch
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 packages mini chocolate bunnies I used Russell Stover, found at Walmart and Dollar General for $1/pack

With electric or stand mixer, cream together butter, shortening, and sugars. Add in vanilla and eggs, beat until smooth.
In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. Mix with wet mixture until just blended. Fold in chocolate bunnies and jelly beans, being careful not to overmix.
Drop by 1/4 cup fulls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
