I think that pretty much everyone has seen and devoured the Oreo truffles right? Well, how about Oreo truffles shaped like cute little bunnies? If you have seen bunny Oreo truffles then please keep it to yourself because I like to think that I created these (just kidding :) ) You won’t even believe how delicious these are unless you try them. They are a-m-a-z-i-n-g.
Anyway. If you’ve never made Oreo truffles it is easy. Grind up some Oreos, mix it with a package of cream cheese, roll it into a ball and dip it in melted chocolate. To make the bunnies it was just as simple. Use a tablespoon scoop for the body, a teaspoon for the head, almond slivers for ears and a peanut for the tail. Coat it in chocolate and draw on a face using a toothpick and melted chocolate. That is it. So cute and easy with absolutely no cooking or baking involved. Even my husband had to smile when he opened the fridge and saw these little guys in there, and that is saying something.
Oreo Bunny Truffles (makes 9 bunnies)
1 row of Oreos (I used Golden Double Stuff)
1/3 package of cream cheese (this is about 2.6 ounces)
1/2 cup white chocolate
1/2 milk or dark chocolate
almond slivers for ears
peanuts for tails
canola oil to thin the chocolate (you don’t need the oil if you use almond bark which is already thin when melted)
Crush the Oreos into tiny pieces and then beat in the cream cheese until the mixture is very well blended. Use a level tablespoonful of Oreo mix for each body. Roll it into your desired body shaped. Now use a level teaspoonful for the head. Lay the head and body right next to each other on a tray covered with wax paper. You may want to slightly squish them right up against each other so they stay together well. Stick in the ears (almond slivers) and tails (peanut) as desired. Put the bunnies in the fridge to chill for a little while. Maybe an hour or 2. You might want to guard them because they are already edible and delicious. I’m just saying.
Now melt your first chocolate in the microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring after each session. Add one teaspoon of oil at a time until the chocolate is thin enough to easily dip a bunny (almond bark already dips easily without adding oil). I tried both dipping and using a spoon to spoon the chocolate onto the bunny. I think dipping may be a little better, but you may want to use more than a half cup of each type of chocolate to be able to easily dip all the bunnies. Repeat steps for second color chocolate.
Once the chocolate is hardened, draw on a face using a toothpick. If the cups of chocolate you used for dipping are too hard then just put it back in the microwave as needed (for no more than 15 seconds at a time) If you need to you can trim off any excess chocolate around the bottom of the bunnies using a sharp knife.
You can make a large batch if you want to have about 25-30 bunnies. All you would need to do is triple the ingredients. I didn’t want that many little bunnies taunting me to eat them, so I made the smaller batch that is shown here.
