How to Make a Breakable Chocolate Bunny

This Breakable Chocolate Bunny filled with Easter candy or mini toys is fun to break open to reveal a fun surprise and makes a great gift for the kiddos!

Breakable Chocolate Bunny

Did someone say Smashable Chocolate Bunny? I mean who doesn’t love to smash things. Am I right? It’s so satisfying to break something open to see what’s inside. A chocolate pinata in the shape of a bunny is the perfect Easter treat and you can make it right at home with a few supplies. The fun part is smashing it with a wooden mallet. The kids will love it just as much as the adults do.

You can make these any size you want. It all depends on the silicone mold you use as they range in size from small to xl and even bigger than that. And the amount of chocolate you use will depend on the size of the mold you use and how many you make. You may want to make sure that you have enough chocolate melts before you begin. And if you have any leftovers you can always make more Breakable Chocolate Bunnies.

How to Make a Chocolate Smash Bunny

What is a Chocolate Smash Bunny?

A chocolate smash bunny is a chocolate mold filled with sweet treats or non-edible gifts inside. To reveal the surprise inside, use a wooden mallet and break it open. It’s super fun to do and any age will enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • Don’t overcook the chocolate!
  • Smooth out any air bubbles in chocolate after placing it in silicone mold using the back of a spoon.
  • Don’t use too heavy of treats inside to avoid breaking or topping over.
  • Be careful of chocolate bunny ears as they are very fragile.
  • To avoid fingerprints or melting wear food safe gloves.
  • Make sure the chocolate is firm before building.
  • To store, keep them in an airtight container in fridge to avoid melting.

Ingredients

Milk chocolate candy melts
Pink candy melts
White candy melts
Wilton pink candy heart
Candy or mini toys to put inside

Will Also Need

XL semi-sphere silicone mold
Parchment paper
2 Sandwich bags or piping bags
Wooden mallet
Bowl
Spoon
Hot Plate

How to Make a Breakable Chocolate Easter Bunny

Add milk chocolate candy melts to bowl and melt in microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until creamy and smooth.

Spoon melted candy melts into the molds making sure to only fill the sides of the mold all the way to the top and keeping the inside hollow. Use the back of a spoon to guide the chocolate throughout the mold.

Place molds in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes or until they are easy to pop out. Very carefully remove the chocolate from the mold. If they don’t pop out easily, place back in freezer for a few more minutes.

Build the Chocolate Bunny

Fill one half of the chocolate molds with candy or mini toys.

Heat a plate in the microwave for about 45 seconds or until hot. Press the empty chocolate mold half open-side-down onto the flat portion of the warm plate and twist back and forth for a few seconds to gently melt the rim of the chocolate.

Immediately press this warmed edge chocolate cup to the top of the filled cup. This will join the two halves of the hot cocoa bomb. If you are having trouble getting the two halves to join, you can carefully rub your finger around the line to seal the together or pipe melted chocolate around to seal together.

Decorate the Chocolate Bunny

Add pink candy melts to one bowl and white candy melts in another bowl and melt in microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until creamy and smooth.

Use a sandwich bag or piping bag and add the melted chocolate to separate bags. Wait a few minutes to cool to make it easy to pipe. If using a sandwich bag snipe one corner off to pipe. 

In the middle of the chocolate mold pipe some melted pink chocolate and place the candy heart for the bunny nose. 

Use the melted white melted chocolate and pipe the mouth and whiskers for the bunny and allow to harden.

Make the Bunny Ears

Lay a piece of parchment paper down on a flat surface.

Add pink candy melts to one bowl and milk chocolate candy melts in another bowl and melt in microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until creamy and smooth.

Use a sandwich bag or piping bag and add the melted chocolate to separate bags. Wait a few minutes to cool to make it easy to pipe. If using a sandwich bag snipe one corner off to pipe. 

Either freehand draw the bunny ears or place a drawing underneath the parchment paper. Pipe the inside of the ears with melted pink first and then pipe the melted milk chocolate around the pink and allow the ear to harden.

Once the ears are harden peel them off the parchment paper and pipe some melted milk chocolate on top of the chocolate mold and place the bunny ears one at a time allowing to dry in between. May need to prop up on something or place in freezer for a few minutes to allow to harden.

To Break: Use a wooden mallet and pound on the chocolate until it breaks open to reveal a fun surprise.
