Are you looking for a cute Easter treat to make with your family this weekend. These Oreo Bunny Pops are so fun and easy to put together.
I have one last quick and easy Easter treat to share with you this week. I realize that this it totally last minute and you probably already have your Easter treats all decided on.
But you really need these cute bunnies and these Nutella cream eggs in your life.
Hopefully a few of you will be inspired to go back to the store for the ingredients to make these adorable bunnies. I promise you they are easy.
It is the perfect edible craft for your children or grandchildren to help you with this weekend.
Let’s get started with what tools you will need to make these treats easier. Quite honestly you could do it without all of these, but this is what I used to make it easier.
The straws to put the Oreos on, toothpicks to draw on the whiskers, flat marshmallows for ears, the bunny cookie cutter to cut out the ears, tweezers to put on the pink round sprinkles for noses, a paint brush to put on corn syrup that the pink sugar to stick to, candy eyes, and scissors. And of course you will need Golden Oreos and white melting chocolate.
Step One: Twist apart the Oreos. Flatten one end of the straw. Put the flattened end inside the Oreo with a little bit of melted white chocolate. Place the top cookie back on and let it set so you can do the rest of the step.
Step Two: Cut out the ears. Place the flat marshmallow on the counter and press with the cookie cutter so only one ear is made at a time. Remove the cookie cutter and use scissors to cut away the rest of the ear.
Go ahead and cut a small part off the bottom at an angle so it will attach to the Oreo better. I have the steps for this in the next picture.
Step Three: Next you will start dipping the Oreos in the melted white chocolate. Make sure you have the candy eyes, pink sprinkle noses, and tweezers very close by. Dip each Oreo at a time by spooning chocolate over the whole cookie.
Tap off the excess chocolate very gently. Place the chocolate coated cookie on a wax paper lined tray. Place the candy eyes on. Use the tweezers to drop the pink nose on because it will be so much easier. Do this right after dipping the cookie in chocolate, so it is still wet enough for the sprinkles and eyes to attach too.
Step Four: Dip the angled end of the marshmallow ears into the chocolate and carefully attach to the top of the cookie. Finish the rest and let them set up.
Step Five: After the chocolate has completely set up, use the paintbrush to coat the center of each marshmallow ear with corn syrup and then sprinkle with the pink sugar.
Step Six: The next thing you will do is melt the chocolate. Using a toothpick very carefully draw on whiskers. Let it dry because you do not want to ruin your hard work. Flip the cookies over and attach half of a miniature marshmallow for a tail using the white chocolate. Let set again. Then step back and admire your handiwork. Sorry I forgot to flip one over so you could see the tails!
Step Seven: The very last thing that you could do is add a tag on the straw. I used the Lifestyle Party Flag Inserts die cuts to cut out the small round circle. The little tag on the center was an Easter stamp that I picked up at JoAnn’s for $1.
I stamped the sentiment with two colors of ink and cut around the edges. Then I used double sided tape to attach it to the die cut. I love that this die cut set has the slits already cut in for you. It makes it so easy to add to straws or lollipop sticks.
I used a small wooden basket filled with foam and colored shredded paper to hold the Oreo bunny pops up. Wouldn’t this be the cutest center piece for your Easter dinner table?

- Place the chocolate covered cookies on a wax paper lined tray. Put the candy eyes on while the chocolate is still wet. Using tweezers, place the pink sprinkle nose on.
