These Oreo bunny truffles are a fun and festive way to celebrate Easter! Made with Oreo cookies, cream cheese, and white chocolate – It is the perfect Easter dessert recipe!
If you have followed along for a while you will know that I have a soft spot for adorable holiday treats. These Bunny Truffles are no different. I whipped them up my very first year of blogging and to this day they are still one of my favorites.
I have made them on TV several times and taught local classes to help people master the art of the truffle.
- This is an intermediate level recipe. It will take a little practice to get it perfect.
- Adorable Holiday Treat: Seriously, almost too cute to eat.
- Make Ahead: You can make this recipe up to one week in advance and store in the refrigerator.
I am here to tell you that this Easter recipe is super simple. So simple that I am confident you can do it too. Follow this step by step bunny truffle tutorial and make your very own!
What You Need:
Here is what you will need to get started on these 2-ingredient Oreo truffles and fun little creatures!
We are going to start with a classic Oreo truffle recipe. This will be the base of your bunny!
For the truffle base you will need:
- 1 bag of Oreo cookies
- 1 (8oz) package of cream cheese
For the Bunny assembly:
- mini marshmallows
- pink sanding sugar
- heart sprinkles
- vanilla almond bark or white candy melts
- blue food color or an edible marker
- Jimmies and rainbow sprinkles were used on the plain ol’ truffles
Step by Step Instructions:
Because this is a bit of a process, I’ve broken this down into two steps. The first, building the base cookie truffle. The second is decorating.
- Place the cookies into a blender and pulse until they become a crumbled powder type texture. You want the cookies to have almost no large crumbs.
- Transfer the cookies to the bowl of a stand mixer or mixing bowl. Using the paddle attachment, or a hand mixer, combine your Oreo crumbs with your cream cheese. Mix 1 to 2 minutes, or until a dough forms.
- Use a small cookie scoop or 2 tablespoons to form uniform size balls.
- Place them onto a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate them at least 20 minutes or up to a few hours.

Building Your Bunny:
Ok, so now you have your truffles chilling. Next up is prep and building the bunnies!
- While your truffles are chilling, 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 sticky part into your sanding sugar. This will give you two bunny ears – ready to attach to your truffles. Keep going until you have enough for all of your bunnies.
- Melt the chocolate according to the package directions. I start by heating, in a medium measuring cup, for 30 seconds the microwave. Stir and heat in 15 second intervals until fully melted.
- Carefully push two truffles onto a toothpick. You do NOT want to push the toothpick all the way through the second truffle.
- Holding the toothpick, quickly dip your truffles into the melted chocolate. Let the candy coating drizzle off a bit and place on the wax paper.
- Working quickly- attach the ears (cut marshmallows) and an upside down heart sprinkle for the nose.
- Allow the chocolate to set fully.
- Carefully pull out the toothpick. It’s ok if it leaves a tiny hole.
- Dip one mini marshmallow in a bit of melted chocolate and place where the toothpick was to create a tail and to cover the hole.
- Use food color on the end of a toothpick or an edible marker to create the eyes.
Phew, that was a LOT of info. Please drop me a line if you have any questions! I’m hoping to put together a how-to video this year to walk everyone through the process.
It really is not as difficult as it seems and these little guys are beyond adorable!

Making the Oreo truffles:
- These Oreo bunny truffles are a fun and festive way to celebrate Easter! Made with Oreo cookies, cream cheese, and white chocolate - It is the perfect Easter dessert recipe! Start with an un dipped batch of Oreo Truffles.
- Roll your dough into evenly sized balls. Chill for 1 hour or until firm.
- While your truffles are chilling, make the bunny ears.
- Take one mini marshmallow. Slightly smush between two fingers. Cut with clean kitchen scissors directly in half. Take the stick side of the marshmallow and dip into the pink sanding sugar. Set aside.
Assembling your bunny truffles:
- Melt the almond bark or white chocolate according to the package.
- Pull the truffles, four at a time, out of the refrigerator. Push a toothpick through two of the truffles. Make sure it does not go all the way through and only just holds them together. You will want a good amount still hanging out of the back to help you grip.
- Holding the toothpick, quickly dip your truffles into your melted almond bark. Let the candy coating drizzle off a bit. Place on the wax paper.
- Working quickly, place two ears onto the top of the head of the bunny along with an upside down heart sprinkle. Allow to set completely.
- Once the chocolate has hardened, gently remove the toothpick. Dip a mini marshmallow in melted chocolate and place over the hole the toothpick left. This will be your tail.
- Using a clean toothpick, dip into the blue food coloring. Carefully dot two eyes.
- Store your adorable bunnies in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
