This Easter bunny butt cheese ball turns a delicious double chocolate cheesecake batter into the cutest Easter treat ever. With a decadently sinful chocolate cheesecake base, and coated with golden oreo cookie crumbs- this bunny butt cheeseball is as yummy as it is cute!
I adore the bunny butt treat trend.
What is cuter and more Easter-y and springtime-y than a fluffy little bunny butt?
Especially when cute little bunny paws are involved too.
And really, just look at how cute those bunny paws are.
I just couldn’t let this spring go by without making something with a little bunny booty and adorable bunny feet.
A dessert cheese ball just seemed like the perfect treat to turn into a bunny butt.
The consistency of this dessert cheese ball is so pliable.
How To Make
This bunny butt is all very simple shapes, making this the perfect food craft to get the kids involved with.
Even my youngest likes to help making this because you just roll the cheese ball into 4 smaller balls.
In order to make the main bunny body, I use my hands to roll about two thirds of the cheese ball mixture into a large ball.
Two smaller balls flattened into little oval cheese cake pancake shapes make up the feet.
Lastly you just make a smaller ball for the tail.
And to get the bunny fluff feeling?
Roll all the pieces of the chocolate cheesecake cheese ball in food processed Golden Oreo cookies.
Add extra and press in, as needed, to cover any stubborn bare spots.
To finish, this Easter bunny butt cheese ball off, press three pink M&M’s into each bunny foot as toes.
Then center one pink M&M in each bunny foot above the toes as the pad of the bunny’s foot.
The pink adds that extra springtime feel to this fun dessert.
And the rich chocolate cheesecake that makes this dessert cheese ball is just as sweet to eat as it is to make and look at.
The chocolate cheesecake cheese ball has extra richness from double the chocolate.
You mix half a cup of cocoa powder with the cream cheese, sugars, and softened butter before you fold in chocolate chips.
The result? Serious chocolate cheesecake heaven with a Golden Oreo crust.
Other Dessert Cheese Ball Coating Ideas
Not a fan of Golden Oreos? You could roll the cheese ball into coconut flakes the way I did with my snowman themed dessert cheese ball. It would give a nice ‘fluffy’ fur effect to your bunny butt ball, and possibly mesh more with your Easter decor. I know a lot of people often associate white with the Easter Bunny and all.
You could also use all mini chocolate chips for a chocolate on chocolate feel.
- Powdered graham crackers would also make a perfect substitute for the golden oreos.
