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.
It feels so strange to know Easter is 10 days from now and these Reese's Fudge Easter Bunnies are the first candies I've made for the season.
Usually, my 40 baking trays are filled with foil-wrapped peanut butter eggs, caramel chocolate eggs, coconut cream eggs, marshmallow eggs, chocolate bunnies, and painted Easter 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.
Let's make fudge bunnies.
- 12 ounces light cocoa candy melts
- 8 ounces Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread (= ¾ cup)*
*You can also use Peanut Butter, Nutella, or Biscoff Spread to make this fudge.
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 ¾ 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 ¾ cup.

How long do they stay good, and do they need refrigerated?
Store them at room temperature for up to a month. It's best to keep them in an airtight container.

How cute are these?! Beth, your creations always amaze me! Thanks for sharing these adorable treats with us at #FoodieFriDIY!
Ooh Beth I love how you add the faces to these, so adorable!
Would these turn out the same, if I used Hersey's Milk Chocolate chips, instead of the candy melts?
No they wont, unless you temper the chocolate chips. My first attempt with this recipe was using pure chocolate (with cocoa butter.) I did not temper the chocolate and the bunnies did not set correctly. They were soft and sticky and after a few days they turned dry and crumbly. I highly recommend using the candy melts unless you want to temper the chocolate chips.

Yummy! Love chocolate and peanut butter! Pinning this to try later.
Thanks for the pin:)

Hope you're feeling better 😉 The bunny faces make me smile and there's nothing better than chocolate mixed with peanut butter!
Thanks, Brenda, I am feeling back to myself. It is so nice to have energy again. I'm happy my bunnies made you smile:)
Just made mine. They turned out great and were so easy. First time I've used the writing pen and after just a few faces, I had a problem with the ink going on. Can you give me any tips on why that might have happened. Thank you so much for your wonderful recipes!
Glad to hear they turned out great! I have an entire tutorial about using the food coloring markers. Copy and past this link to go to the page - https://hungryhappenings.com/2012/08/tips-on-how-to-use-edible-ink-food.html
Oh my goodness! When I saw the Reeses Spread in the stores I thought the exact same thing! Make Easter chocolates with it. I haven't made mine yet but I'm glad I came across this post because now I know it will turn out.
I have gone through so many jars of the Reese's Spread lately. I love it in this easy fudge, but know it can be used for so many recipes.
I'm so sorry you're still sick..y'all have had a rough month. Praying you're feeling better soon for good this time.
These sweet little bunnies are sooo cute..and made with peanut buttery chocolate we know they're super yummy. I bought a jar of this Reese's spread a while back and was thinking about making a caramelly candy with them but I like your idea of a two ingredient fudge better!
I am happy to report that we are both finally feeling better. There is still lots of coughing and sniffling going on, but we feel human again. I actually got a lot of work done yesterday which felt so good.
Ooh, if you do make the caramel candy using the spread, I'll be excited to see how you do it. Sounds yummy!
Too cute! And very simple. Can't get any easier than 2 ingredients and 30 minutes! Pinned and shared.
Thanks, Alexandra. It was so nice to have these done so quickly.
So creative (as usual) and I love the face expressions you made on them.
You are very talented Beth!
Thanks so much!
So sorry you haven't been feeling well, from the looks of these adorable peanut butter bunnies no one would ever know. PB and chocolate is one of my FAVORITE combos!
Thanks, Kim. I'm sure some of my ill feelings have to do with the crazy changes in weather. One day it's snowing, the next it's 64, then it's freezing again. Over the weekend, when I felt good it was sunny and warm, then the cold and snow moved in then we had a day of rain. I'm dreaming of sunshine!!!
