Little Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Rabbits are just perfect for Easter Baskets! Make them like this with a peanut butter filling, leave them hollow or make them into solid chocolate bunnies!
This post and recipe was created for #EasterSweetsWeek. I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine
When I started making these Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Rabbits I told Thomas that I thought that I should practice some more and make chocolates for a living.
The look on his face told me that I needed to chill out and just make my bunnies haha. Not that he doesn’t have the faith in me that I could make chocolates for a living but it’s probably because I come up with a new plan of “what I want to be when I grow up” like every week. My poor husband has to deal with me and my ever changing, crazy mind all the time y’all. He deserves an award.
While I may not be the next famous chocolate maker, I’m still going to keep making my little chocolate creations in my kitchen and loving every minute of it.
There is just something so satisfying about melting down chocolate (or chocolate candy wafers), pouring them into chocolate molds and popping out super cute little homemade candies.
For these I used this 3D candy mold that I found at AC Moore and I think it was $2 or $3. These molds are perfect for the 3D Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Rabbits!
Making these little Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Rabbits is pretty easy but I do suggest that if you’re going to be making a lot of these that you buy more than one mold because you do have to let each one sit for a bit a harden before you can pop it out of the candy mold.
So here’s what you do…
Pour a bit of melted chocolate or melted chocolate candy wafers into one side of the chocolate bunny candy mold. Use a clean food safe paint brush or a small spoon to push the melted chocolate up the sides of the mold.
Pop the mold into the fridge for about 5 minutes.
Take the peanut butter mixture (recipe below) and press it into the mold.
Place into the fridge while you work on the other side of the rabbit mold.
Pour melted chocolate into the other side of the rabbit mold and push the chocolate up over the edges.
Now here is where you can play around with this method a bit, I just put the peanut butter mixture onto one side of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Rabbits and make the other side solid chocolate, but you could do peanut butter on both sides or do a hollow bunny on the other side.
Pick an option and then spread some melted chocolate onto the peanut butter side, snap the two bunny mold sides together and shake!
You’ll want to shake it to make sure that you get chocolate around the edges to seal the rabbit!
Stick the chocolate mold into the fridge for about 15 minutes and then just pop the rabbit out of the mold and start making another!
You can also use other colors of melting candy wafers to make pastel rabbits or to add color accents to the chocolate ones.
Aren’t they just perfect? Ook, maybe not perfect haha but they’re pretty great around here!
