What You'll Need
Let's get started with what ingredients and tools you will need to make these Easter treats.
- Oreos - any flavor or variety will work.
- White Candy Melts & Chocolate Candy Melts - We love using Ghirardelli because they melt easy and taste so good.
- Pink Round Sprinkles - for the nose. Pink heart sprinkles are fun too.
- Corn Syrup - Used to make the sugar stick to the marshmallow ears.
- Pink Sanding Sugar - for the inside of the ears.
- Straws - Added if you want to turn the Oreos into pops
- Toothpicks - Makes it easier to draw the whiskers on the faces.
- Flat Marshmallows - Easiest marshmallow to cut into ears.
- Bunny Cookie Cutter - Any size will work, but one with bigger ears is best.
- Scissors - You will need these to trim the ears.
- Tweezers - These just make it so much easier to place small sprinkles for noses onto wet chocolate.
- Paint Brush - I like to use these to brush the syrup onto the marshmallows.
- Edible Candy Eyes - Find these fun eyeballs in most grocery stores or craft stores in their baking aisles.
How to Make Oreo Bunny Pops
Prep the Ingredients
- Twist apart the Oreos and lay them cream side up on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Flatten one end of each paper straw.
- Melt the white chocolate in a microwave bowl at 50% power. Stir until melted and creamy.
- Dip the flattened end of the straw in the melted candy coating and place it on an Oreo cookie. Place the top cookie back on and let it set.
- Cut out the ears. Place the flat marshmallow on a hard surface and press with the cookie cutter so only one ear is made at a time. Remove the cookie cutter and use scissors to trim the marshmallows. Cut a small part off the bottom at an angle, so it will attach to the Oreo better.
Assemble the Cookies
- Dip the Oreos one by one into the melted white chocolate. Make sure you have the candy eyes, pink sprinkle noses, and tweezers very close by. Use a spoon to cover the whole cookie in chocolate.
- Tap the excess chocolate off very gently. Place the chocolate covered Oreo on a wax paper lined tray.
- While the chocolate is still wet, press the candy eyes in place. Use the tweezers to drop the pink nose onto the chocolate.
- Dip the angled cut side of two marshmallow ears into the white chocolate and carefully attach to the top of the cookie. Repeat all the steps with the rest of the Oreos and let them set.
Decorate the Ears & Add Whiskers
- Once the chocolate has completely dried, use the paintbrush to coat the center of each marshmallow ear with corn syrup. Then sprinkle with the pink sugar.
- Melt the chocolate wafers. Use a toothpick to very carefully draw whiskers on the bunnies. Let it dry before moving.
- Flip the cookies over and attach half of a mini marshmallow to the back for a tail using the white chocolate. Let set again.
The very last thing that you could do is add a tag on the straw. I used a die cuts to cut out small round circles. 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.
Fill a small wooden basket with foam and colored shredded paper to hold the Oreo bunnies. This would make the cutest center piece for your Easter dinner table.
You can also place each one individually in small plastic bags and tie ribbons and tags to the outside.
