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’s and cream cheese. These two ingredients will form the base of our bunny.
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.
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.
Here comes the fun part. Gather your decorating supplies. For the bunnies I used:
pink sanding sugar
vanilla almond bark
and blue food color
(Jimmies and rainbow sprinkles were used on the plain ol’ truffles)
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!
