Chocolate Bunny Cups
You may have seen Chocolate Bunny Cups like this on Pinterest. They are great for kid-friendly drinks like chocolate milk or for filling with a tasty chocolate Easter bunny cocktail! They are super cute and easy to create. Here’s how to make them.
What you need to make Chocolate Bunny Cups:
- Small hollow chocolate bunnies
- Drink of your choice. Some fun ideas include:
- Chocolate or strawberry milk
- Chocolate Easter bunny cocktail (like this Baileys Chocolate Bunny Cocktail or this Chocolate Easter Bunny Espresso Martini)
- Chocolate bunny shots
- Festive straws
How to make Chocolate Bunny Cups:
Unwrap your bunny and cut the ears off with a sharp knife at the top of the head so there’s a wide enough opening to fill with a beverage. Fill the bunny cups with the liquid of your choice, and add a straw. This works for chocolate bunny cocktails for adults, or for festive Easter mocktails for kids and others who don’t drink.
Candy Surprise Bunnies
I saw a really cute idea on A Pumpkin and a Princess for Homemade Chocolate Bunnies filled with treats. I loved the idea, but was inspired to do something similar with pre-made hollow chocolate bunnies (as I always say, there’s no shame in the shortcut game). The Candy Surprise Bunnies we made can be used as a surprise bunny treat that “poops” out sprinkles, as a fun sensory treat to break open to reveal a surprise, or even as a big hot cocoa bomb if you include some hot cocoa mix inside. If you’re wondering what to do with leftover chocolate Easter bunnies, the creative ideas really are endless. Here’s how to make Candy Surprise Bunnies.
What you need to make Candy Surprise Bunnies:
- Small hollow chocolate bunnies
- Heat source (you can heat the edge of a chef’s knife or use a frying pan over the stove)
- Spring-themed sprinkles
- Spring M&M’S
- If making these as Easter bunny hot cocoa bombs: Hot cocoa powder
How to make Candy Surprise Bunnies:
Use your preferred heat source to melt a hole in the bunny at the tail area (press the tail onto the surface of a hot frying pan, or heat one side of a large knife with a mini brulee torch and press onto the tail area of the bunny). Let the chocolate cool, then fill the hollow bunny with Easter-colored sprinkles and M&M’S. Depending on the size of the tail opening, either stuff the end of a mini marshmallow in the hole to plug it, or melt the edge of a large marshmallow (so it becomes a little sticky) and stick it to the chocolate bunny over the hole to make a cotton tail.
When it’s time to enjoy your Candy Surprise Bunnies, you can either pull off (or eat) the marshmallow and the bunny will “poop” out sprinkles and candy, or you can smash it to break it open, revealing the candy surprises. If you’re using it as a hot cocoa bomb, add to a glass of hot milk and swirl around with a spoon until the bunny melts and releases the hot cocoa and treats into the cup of milk.
Easy Easter Bunny Cake Topper
I saw a cute idea on Pinterest when searching for what to do with chocolate bunnies for using a chocolate Easter bunny as a cake topper. I thought this was an adorable but super easy way to create a festive dessert for your Easter meal. Since I love my shortcuts, this Easy Easter Bunny Cake Topper is added to a store-bought cake. Here’s how we made ours.
What you need to make an Easy Easter Bunny Cake Topper:
- Store-bought cake (carrot cake is an on-theme choice, but you can use whatever cake you prefer)
- Coconut flakes
- Green food coloring
- Large chocolate bunny
- Candy eggs
How to make an Easy Easter Cake with a Bunny Cake Topper:
In a mixing bowl, mix some green food coloring with coconut flakes to look like grass. Remove any excess decorations from the top of the store-bought cake, and add the coconut “grass” to the top of the cake. Add the chocolate bunny to the top of the cake in the center of the grass, then surround the bunny with candy eggs.
