Easter Bunny Cookie Dough Truffles

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.

How to fill bunny mold with melted chocolate
I started by using the 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.

Cookie Dough Truffle Recipe
Pop the chocolate into the refrigerator and make some Cookie Dough Truffle dough.

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.

Make Cookie Dough Truffle Easter Bunnies
Add the cookie dough into the bunny cavities.  Use your fingers to push it down into the spaces so there isn't a lot of space or air in the mold.

I was able to fill all 24 cavities with the cookie dough from this one recipe.

Fill mold with melted chocolate
Now top the bunnies with a little bit more melted chocolate.  Be sure to tap the mold a little to help the chocolate get down into the crevises and get the air bubbles to come to the top.

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.

I added a few colored sprinkle hearts to the front of the Easter Bunny cookie dough truffles to give them a little color and a sweet nose.  If you want to do that too, just use a little bit of melted chocolate to secure the heart on to the front.

Now enjoy these sweet little Easter bunnies in your Easter baskets this year!
