Easter Bunny Brownie Truffle Dessert

Nothing beats messing around with Easter sweets and sprinkles! I like inventive and interesting treats, particularly during Easter!

Can you believe how adorable these EasterBrownie Bunny Truffles are?They are a brownie truffle that has been covered in white chocolate and rolled in crushed coconut before being garnished with simple ice ornaments.

I like adorable Easter treats, even if they require some work. These aren’t the fastest desserts to make since there are a few processes involved, but believe me when I tell your guests will be blown away! It may also be a fun hobby to do with your children; just be prepared for some mess.

How to Make the Brownie Filling

I used a premade fudgy brownie recipe for these truffles since it was fast and simple. If you want to save time, you may purchase ready-made brownies, but they must be fudgy enough to hold together.

  1. Cool thoroughly after preparing the packaged brownie batter in a 913-inch pan.
  2. Cut the brownie’s edges (and eat them, of course!)
  3. Break the remaining brownies into crumbs with a fork.
  4. Then, using a medium cookie scoop, scoop and shape them into flat-bottomed brownie balls.
  5. Freeze for at least 2 hours until hardened.

It’s much simpler to dip them when they’re frozen, in my opinion. So you can make the brownies ahead of time and freeze them till ready to dip! It certainly helps to split up the preparation and assembly process.

I preferred brownies over cake balls since they have more structure and don’t need any icing to keep them together. However, you may make them as cake balls as well.

How to Dip the Brownie Truffle

I used a melting pot and a bag of Wilton Bright White Candy Melts. My melting pot is fantastic because it maintains the candy at a consistent temperature. Once the candy melts are all melted, adjust the temperature to warm.

If you don’t have a melting pot, you can melt them in the microwave. The candy melt should be warm but not hot, and it should be thin enough to drop off the spoon. The candy will solidify rapidly since the brownies are chilled. Test the first two to ensure that it will not crack. If the chocolate cracks, it is too hot and needs to cool down a bit further.

I suggest adding Crisco shortening to the candy melts since it keeps them thin and smooth, making dipping simpler. After melting the candy melts, add 1 spoonful at a time and mix until the appropriate consistency is reached.

  1. Pick up and manage the frozen brownie balls with a toothpick before dipping and swirling them in the candy melts. Tap the toothpick gently against the side of the bowl to remove any leftover chocolate.
  2. To dry, place the brownie on a silicone mat or parchment paper. It is critical to not use a wire rack for these since the bottom of the truffle will adhere to it.
  3. Cover the toothpick hole with a dab of white chocolate using a little knife.
  4. Cover in coconut: If you wish to create coconut truffles, you must do it immediately after the brownies have been dipped.Simply place the brownie truffle in a dish of crushed coconut and swirl it around lightly. Then lay it out to dry on your mat.

How to Decorate the Easter Bunnies

I used Wilton Icing decorations, handmade bunny ears made with candy melts, and little marshmallow tails for the embellishments on these truffles. It is better to apply the ornamentation after all of the truffles have been dipped and set. However, you may make the bunny ears while the brownie balls are freezing to ensure that everything is ready to go.

The rabbit ear template is available for download right here!

  1. Tape the template to a small baking sheet, then cover with parchment or wax paper.
  2. Using a microwave, melt 10 pieces of white candy melt and stir until smooth. Allow to get too cool to the touch. Fill a 12-inch piping bag with a coupler and a size #2 open round tip with the mixture.
  3. Rep the previous step with 10 pink candy melts. If you just have one piping tip, you may add the pink while the white candy melts are still wet, or after.
  4. Trace and fill the rabbit ears with white candy melts, then draw the centre of the ears with pink candy melts using the pattern.
  5. If necessary, a toothpick might be your greatest friend in cleaning up the edges or contours of the ears!
  6. Once all of them are piped, place the pan in the refrigerator to allow the chocolate to set.

How to Add the Bunny Ears to the Truffles

  1. Using an angled spatula or a sharp knife, make a tiny incision in the top of the truffles.
  2. Place a small piece of white sugar melts over the rabbit ears and insert them into the truffle slits. They’re really rather sturdy, but don’t raise them by the ears! That does not sit well with any bunny-harhar.

How to Add the Remaining Decorations

  1. Apply a little amount of sugar melts as an adhesive to the rear of the glasses and bow ties before placing them on the truffle.
  2. Attach the rabbit tails with a little amount of sugar melts as well.
  3. I used leftover heart-shaped sprinkles from Valentine’s Day for the bunnies’ lips, but you could instead use pink candy melts.

How to Store

I refrigerated these truffles after I completed them since it was hot where I live, but they do not need to be chilled. You should eat them within 1-2 days after preparing them.

I really hope you will give them a try! I’m not a big admirer of chocolate manufacturing since I think it’s never particularly attractive. Guess what, the coconut conceals all of your imperfections!

Easter Brownie Bunny Truffles

  • Author:LEE
  • Prep Time:6 hours
  • Cook Time:20 minutes
  • Total Time:6 hours 20 minutes
  • Yield:24-28 truffles


These Easter Bunny Truffles are a fun and imaginative Easter snack to create for the kids. The white chocolate-covered brownie truffle is rolled with shredded coconut.


  • 1 box Fudge brownie mix
  • Ingredients listed on the box (egg, oil water)
  • 1 bag Wilton Bright White Candy Melts
  • 2 oz Pink Candy Melts (optional)
  • 3 tbsp Crisco Shortening
  • Wilton icing decorations
  • Sweetened shredded coconut
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Heart shaped sprinkles


  1. Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions. Allow to totally cool.
  2. Remove the sharp edges. Break the brownies into crumbs with a fork. Spoon the brownie crumbs into the cookie scoop using a medium size cookie scoop (about 2 teaspoons). Place on a baking sheet coated with a silicone mat or parchment paper, flat side down.
  3. Freeze for at least 2 hours, or longer if prepared ahead of time.
  4. Before beginning the truffles, prepare the bunny ears. Melt roughly 3 ounces (10 pieces) White Candy Melts in the microwave. Stir until the mixture is entirely smooth. Rep with the pink candy melts.
  5. Pipe the rabbit ears using the pattern supplied above and a tiny piping bag with a coupler and a size #2 round tip. Fill the center with pink candy melts. Refrigerate the rabbit ears to speed up the hardening process.
  6. Fill the melting pot with the remaining candy melts. Use the melt setting to melt and smooth the white candy melts. Add 1 tablespoon of Crisco at a time to flatten down the candy melts until they drop smoothly off the spoon. Stir with a spatula until thoroughly combined. Reduce the temperature of your melting pot to warm.
  7. Take the brownies out of the freezer. Insert a toothpick into the brownie and dip and swirl in the candy melts. Excess chocolate should be tapped off.
  8. Place on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. To remove the toothpick, gently twist it. Using a knife, dab a drop of candy melts to cover the toothpick hole.
  9. Optional: To coat the truffle with coconut, quickly pat the coconut into the chocolate with your fingertips before it hardens. It will rapidly harden. Allow the truffles to fully set.
  10. Gently dab one side of the small marshmallow with sugar melts to connect the rabbit tails. Apply to the back of the truffle. It will immediately cool.
  11. Insert the knife lightly into the top of the truffle to connect the rabbit ears. Gently dip the end of one ear into the candy melts. Press lightly into the top of the truffle.
  12. Dab the backside of the icing embellishments with candy melts and carefully push into the truffle to adhere them.
  13. You may either use a heart-shaped sprinkle or pipe the rabbit nose with pink sugar melts. Apply the sprinkle with a little drop of candy melts.
  14. Refrigerate truffles if not serving within a day.


  • The brownies may be made ahead of time and frozen. After the brownies were frozen, it took me 1-1.5 hours to create the truffles from start to end. Make the rabbit ears ahead of time before dipping the truffles. This will help you save time.
  • If the candy melts shatter after you dip the brownies, the chocolate is too hot and has to cool before continuing.
  • Download the rabbit ears template. I propose taping it to a baking sheet and then covering it with parchment or wax paper.
