While I absolutely adore getting Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs in my Easter Basket every year, I'm not a huge fan of filling my kids' Easter baskets with all kinds of expensive, dumb Easter candy treats from the local stores.
I mean seriously, have you seen some of those candy toys? And the prices?
I definitely like to add a few treats that are homemade so I can keep the expense and the craziness down every year. So I've been working on crafting some yummy Easter treats like the Easter Egg white chocolate fudge and now these Easter Bunny Cookie Dough Truffles.
These cookie dough truffles weren't difficult at all to make, in fact, they are one of the easier candy pieces that my kids love for me to make. They are actually Daredevil's favorite treat, so he'll be super excited to find them in his Easter Basket this year.
Wilton Bunny Silicone Treat Mold
that I purchased years ago for my Easter Bunny brownie bites. I think I saw it in the Easter aisle this year at Walmart but you can also find the Bunny Mold at Amazon.
Using a little bit of melted chocolate, I painted the inside of the mold cavities. You'll want to try and make the edges pretty thick so they won't crack. This usually means to paint the sides and then go back once they are dry and paint them again.
That's a little time consuming, but it's not bad when you are way behind in your "Grey's Anatomy" shows and can catch up.
To do this you'll need:
1/3 cup soft butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 cup Flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Mix all these ingredients into a bowl. At first the dough will be pretty dry, but as you keep mixing, it will begin to clump together. Keep mixing until you have large clumps of cookie dough.
I was able to fill all 24 cavities with the cookie dough from this one recipe.
Refrigerate the Easter Bunny cookie dough truffles for about 20 minutes or until the chocolate is hard and shiny.
Very carefully, pull the edges of the mold away from each truffle. Once done, you should be able to turn the mold over and carefully pop out the Easter bunnies.
Now enjoy these sweet little Easter bunnies in your Easter baskets this year!
