Chocolate Covered Cake Bunnies - adorable Easter treats that are super easy to make! Delicious lemon cake in shape of bunnies covered in white chocolate - you will love these!
I got crafty again.
I made Easter bunnies from a lemon sheet cake and covered them in white chocolate. Then I stuck a flower bead on their.... well, bottom.
My kids love them and now I have to make them again for Easter.
Besides, these little creatures are so easy and so adorable that it's hard not to swoon over them! 🙂
I made a lemon sheet cake that is absolutely delicious and perfect for Easter or any Spring event. You don't have to make bunnies - use any cookie cutters you like. This cake can take it! It has the perfect height for this. I think you could even stack two bunnies with a layer of jam in between and then frost them or cover with chocolate! Be creative!
It's a new to me product but I am having a lot of fun dipping my treats in chocolate!
These bunnies would be fabulous wrapped in treats bags and given to kids for Easter!
Chocolate Covered Cake Bunnies Recipe
- 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
- 1 cup water
- 2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs beaten
- ½ cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon lemon extract
- 2 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 14 oz. white chocolate candy coating
- 1 drop pink gel food coloring
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Grease a 15"x 10" baking pan or line it with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Set aside.
- Place butter and water in a medium saucepan and bring to boil. Remove from heat.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour and sugar.
- In another bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, lemon extract, zest, baking soda and salt.
- Add the hot butter mixture slowly to the flour mixture, whisking well.
- Add ¼ of a cup of the butter and flour mixture to the eggs and sour cream mixture to temper it.
- Add the rest of the hot mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon or a spatula until smooth.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Smooth out the top.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes (the magic number for me was 23 minutes).
- Let cool completely in the pan.
- Once the cake is cooled, take it out carefully from the pan onto a cutting board. It helps to bake the cake in a parchment paper or aluminum foil lined pan as it makes taking the cake out easier.
- Cut out the bunnies with a cookie cutter and place them on another clean baking sheet.
- Melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler.
- Dip the bunnies top side down in the chocolate coating and let the excess of the chocolate drip down back into the bowl. Helping yourself with a spoon, coat the sides of the bunnies with the chocolate coating.
- Let the bunnies sit on parchment paper lined baking sheet or on a cooling rack set over a baking sheet.
- Once the chocolate coating is set, decorate the bunnies gluing them with dots of the remaining chocolate coating.
