These 2 ingredient Reese’s Fudge Easter Bunnies are so simple to make in a Wilton Silicone Mold and can be decorated using a few sprinkles and a food coloring marker.
Usually at Easter I’m crazy busy making chocolates for customers, but this year, for the first time in what seems like a lifetime, I have not filled any orders because I’ve been sick. My cold took me down for about a week, then I had a few good days, then sadly it came back with a vengeance.
Usually my 40 baking trays are filled with foil wrapped eggs, chocolate bunnies, and painted lollipops by this point of the season. This year, I haven’t even created or sent out my price list and have had to tell my customers they will have to wait until I feel well again.
Did I mention I hate being sick?
During the few days that I felt well, I was as busy as the Easter Bunny trying to get recipes done for the blog and this one was a must do because it’s part of a collaborative effort. Hani from Haniela’s invited me to join her and Kim, The Partiologist, in making a sweet treat using one of Wilton’s silicone Easter molds. We all got the mold and then our creative ideas took hold.
Each of us came up with something completely different. Kim made Easter Bunny Rice Krispies Treats and Hani made Rocky Road Bunny Bites. Be sure to stop by their blogs to check out the tutorials for their treats. Hani even has a video tutorial.
It’s always fun to be a part of a collaborative post for the holidays and it felt so nice to make something chocolatey for Easter.
These little bunnies are quick and easy to make using just 2 ingredients and if you want to make them really cute, you can add some confetti sprinkles and use a food coloring marker to add eyes and a sweet or silly smile.
Milk Chocolate Reese’s Fudge Easter Bunnies Recipe
- 12 ounces Wilton Light Cocoa Candy Melts
- 8 ounces (rounded 3/4 cup) Reese's Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread
- white and pink round confetti sprinkles
- black edible ink marker
- Heat the Light Cocoa Candy Melts for 15-30 second increments stirring after each until melted.
- Stir in the Reese's Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread until smooth.
- Reserve 1 tablespoon of the fudge.
- Pour the remaining fudge into a disposable pastry bag.
- Snip off the tip.
- Pipe fudge into the 24 bunny cavities in the silicone mold.
- Freeze for 15-20 minutes.
- Thaw for at least 15 minutes.
- Heat the reserved fudge in the microwave for 10 second increments, stirring after each until melted.
- Attach two white confetti sprinkles and one pink confetti sprinkle to each bunny.
- Use a candy decorating pen to draw pupils onto each white sprinkle, creating eyes.
- Draw on a smile.
NOTE: I know logic would tell you that 8 ounces = 1 cup, but I weighed the spread a few times and found that I only needed a little over 3/4 cup for 8 ounces of the spread. If you don’t have a scale and are measuring in cups, you want them to be filled just a little past the top of the 3/4 cup. If you can’t find the Reese’s Spread you can also use peanut butter.
