Bunny Oreo Balls

Are you a fan of Oreos? How about adorable bunny-themed treats? If you answered yes to both, then you’re in for a treat with these delightful Bunny Oreo Balls! These little bites of heaven are not only delicious but also incredibly fun to make. So, let’s hop right into it and learn how to create these cute and tasty treats!

Getting Started: Ingredients and Equipment

Before we begin, let’s gather all the ingredients we need. You’ll need a package of Oreos, cream cheese, white chocolate, and colorful candy melts. Don’t forget to grab some sprinkles, edible eyes, and small pretzels too. These ingredients can easily be found at your local grocery store or baking supply shop.

Step 1: Crush the Oreos

The first step in making Bunny Oreo Balls is to crush the Oreos. You can do this by placing them in a food processor or by putting them in a ziplock bag and crushing them with a rolling pin. Make sure the Oreos are finely crushed to create a smooth texture for your Oreo Balls.

Step 2: Mix in Cream Cheese

Once your Oreos are crushed, it’s time to mix in the cream cheese. Take the crushed Oreos and combine them with the cream cheese in a mixing bowl. Use a spatula or your hands to thoroughly mix the two ingredients together. This will create a dough-like consistency that is perfect for shaping into balls.

Step 3: Shape the Oreo Balls

Now comes the fun part – shaping the Oreo Balls into adorable bunny shapes! Take a small amount of the Oreo mixture and roll it into a ball. Then, elongate one end to create the bunny’s body and pinch the other end to form the ears. Repeat this process until you’ve shaped all the Oreo Balls into bunnies.

Step 4: Decorate the Bunny Oreo Balls

Once you’ve shaped all the Oreo Balls, it’s time to give them some personality! Melt the white chocolate and dip each bunny Oreo into the melted chocolate, making sure to coat it completely. This will serve as the base for the decorations. Let the excess chocolate drip off before placing the bunnies on a lined baking sheet.

Tip: Get Creative with Decorations!

Now comes the fun part – decorating the Bunny Oreo Balls! Use colorful candy melts to create the bunnies’ faces and ears. Add some sprinkles for extra flair and attach small pretzels as bunny tails. Don’t forget to place edible eyes on each bunny to give them that cute and whimsical look. Let your imagination run wild!

Ingredients
  

  • 14.3 ounces of chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreo) , approximately 36 cookies
  • 6 ounces of cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup of confectioners sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon of meringue powder (found in the baking aisle)
  • Pink gel food coloring
  • Black gel food coloring
  • 2 cups of white candy melting wafers , approximately 13 ounces
  • 1 teaspoon of refined coconut oil
  • White sanding sugar for decorating
  • Pink sanding sugar for decorating
  • 45 mini marshmallows

Instructions
 

  • Prepare two baking sheets by lining them with parchment paper.
  • Use a food processor to pulse the cookies until they become fine crumbs. Add the cream cheese and pulse until the mixture starts to come together. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and knead it a few times until fully combined.
  • Take about 1/3 of the mixture and roll it into 18 truffles, each about 1 level tablespoon in size. Place these truffles on one of the prepared baking sheets. Roll the remaining mixture into 18 larger truffles, about 1 heaping tablespoon each, and place them on the second baking sheet. Refrigerate for about 1 hour until firm and chilled.
  • While the truffles are chilling, prepare the decorations.
  • To make the royal icing, combine the confectioner's sugar and meringue powder in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until combined. Add 2 1/2 teaspoons of water and increase the speed to medium. Beat until the icing is stiff enough to hold a peak but still soft enough to pipe, about 2 minutes. If the icing becomes too stiff, add up to 1/2 teaspoon more water.
