I can’t believe Easter is just a few weeks away. The farm is filling up with new baby animals including baby chicks. We’ll be coloring Easter Eggs soon enough, and I’m planning our family Easter celebration. I created these Easter Bunny and Sheep Pudding Cups for dinner with the help of Super Snack Pack Pudding Cups. I wanted a fun easy-to-make dessert. These are super simple to make and the kids (and adults too) won’t want to share.
For these Easter Pudding Cups I did two versions of the bunny; a simple version, and one that requires a little more (but not too much) work. I really wanted to make them simple enough that anyone could try them. They would be especially fun for an older child who likes to help in the kitchen. The heads are made with Birthday Cake Oreo Balls rolled in coconut, and dressed up with marshmallows of various sizes and candy eyes. I ultimately decided I’m going to make the more detailed bunny for Easter dinner and use them to decorate the individual place settings.
Before you begin, read the directions completely. You need to prep all of your ingredients for the bunny and sheep heads. You have to add the embellishments while the chocolate is still soft.
Here is my recipe for Coconut Covered Birthday Cake Oreo Balls.
- 1 package Birthday Cake Oreos
- 1 package softened cream cheese
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup sweetened flake coconut
- Crush Birthday Cake Oreos using a food processor.
- Add cream cheese and mix well.
- Roll into balls and place on wax paper.
- Refrigerate until firm.
- Melt chocolate using preferred method.
- Place coconut in small bowl.
- Dip Oreo Balls into chocolate until well covered.
- Roll in coconut and embellish according to animal desired (details below)
You’re gonna need some supplies to create your animals.
- Package of candy eyes
- White small marshmallows
- White large marshmallows
- Pink marshmallows in any size.
When making a sheep I only roll the back of the ball in coconut and secure the eyes. Sheep ears are made with small marshmallows cut in half with kitchen scissors. The kitchen scissors will give the marshmallow a pointy shape on each end. I secure them by dipping the bottom of one marshmallow in melted chocolate and pressing it into the top of the ball. I filled the top of the pudding cup with flaked coconut and placed the sheep head on top.
You will need the same basic supplies for the bunny whether you use the simple or decorated version. You need to create the ears by slicing a large marshmallow in half and then slice those circles in half. You should have two perfect ear shapes that correctly face each other. Snip the bottom off each marshmallow so that they are flat. Dip the outer part of the ear in white chocolate and roll in coconut. The muzzle of the bunny is made by cutting a small marshmallow in half. The nose of the bunny is a small portion a pink marshmallow that I rolled around in my hand to make a small ball shape. Apply the muzzle first by dipping the bottom in chocolate and pressing it on the head. You can apply the nose in the same fashion. I used toothpicks to secure the ears. You will place them in the head first and then slide the ears down over the toothpicks. I used a small marshmallow to make the bunny feet. You will need to cut a marshmallow in half and then make two equally spaced snips to create toes. We crushed regular Oreos and Honey Maid Grahams to create “dirt” and filled the top of the Snack Pack Pudding Cup.
I like that the Super Snack Pack Pudding Cups have 60% more pudding than regular Snack Pack Pudding Cups. They make it easier for me to prep a fun Easter dessert or treat. When I’m not trying to make creative treats, my son and fiance like for me to keep them in the fridge to snack on. There is a coupon for $.50 off a Super Snack Pack that can be redeemed at Walmart here. I found my Super Snack Pack Pudding Cups in my local Walmart under the regular Snack Pack Pudding Cups.
How did you like to eat your pudding cups?
