Hoppy Easter Bunny Truffles

With Easter just around the corner I wanted to bring back an old favorite. These Oreo bunny truffles were such a hit last year that I couldn’t let the holiday pass without bringing them back out

They did turn out pretty adorable. AND made a big splash on the web.
Here is what you will need to get started on these fun little creatures!
oreo truffle ingredients
Oreo’s and cream cheese. These two ingredients will form the base of our bunny.
Oreo truffle ingredients blender
Start by pulling the cookies out of the sleeves, and toss them into a blender. Blend them up until they are nice fine. Almost like a powder.

Using an electric mixer, combine your Oreo crumbs with your cream cheese.
oreo truffle balls
Use a small cookie scoop to form uniform size balls. You’ll have to roll them in you palm to get them nice and smooth. Place them onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet, and pop them into the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
bunny truffle decorating ingredients
Here comes the fun part. Gather your decorating supplies. For the bunnies I used:
Toothpicks
mini marshmallows
pink sanding sugar
heart sprinkles
vanilla almond bark
and blue food color
(Jimmies and rainbow sprinkles were used on the plain ol’ truffles)
bunny truffle ears
Let’s start with a little prep work. Ideally, you could get this done right after you put your truffles in the fridge to firm up. Simply take a mini marshmallow, and squeeze it between your fingers to flatten a bit. Cut it in half with clean scissors, and dip the cut part into your sanding sugar. Voila! Two bunny ears ready to go. Keep going until you have enough for all of your bunnies.

Now, to dip these can be a bit tricky. Push two truffles onto a toothpick. I learned quickly that you don’t necessarily want to push the toothpick all the way through the second one. (I’ll tell you why in a second.)

Holding the toothpick, quickly dip your truffles into your melted almond bark. Let the candy coating drizzle off a bit, then place on the wax paper.

Working quickly, attach the ears, nose, and tail. Once the candy coating has dried, use a toothpick and food color to add eyes.
Once your candy shell has dried, gently pull out the toothpick. Now. . . This leaves some what of an awkward hole in the rear of your bunny. Simply dab a bit of melted chocolate to fill in the blank space.

And there you have it folks! This adorable little bunny will be making an appearance again this year in our home. Something about the cuteness just makes him that much more appetizing!

    Wow! I was not a follower last year and never saw these but I LOVE these! I can’t wait to make these. SO creative!!

    Did you use the whole container of oreos and bar of cream cheese for one batch? How many bunnies / servings did it yield overall? These are adorable and I’d love to do them for a family gathering.

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Hey there! These look adorable and I really want to make them this Easter. Just to re-ask Marys question: Did you use the whole container of oreos and bar of cream cheese for one batch? How many bunnies / servings did it yield overall?

    I did fine making these until it came to the almond bark, my truffles slipped off and the almond bark wasn’t all that runny, when I turned up the heat it started to brown :/ so that didn’t work either. Maybe I should have frozen the truffles.

    Can you make these little guys with blue ears instead? Would they look okay with blue sugar instead of pink for their little ears?

    These are so adorable! Do these have to be refrigerated? I’d like to make and ship them. Will they be ok being shipped and not refrigerated? Do you think they are too fragile?
