I have an awesomely outrageous, splendidly easy and SUPERFREAKINGCUTEYOUWANTTOBITEITSHEADOFFADORABLE treat to share with you today!
In lieu of a story about my weird life, I’m just posting the recipe because A) school is consuming me and I can only speak in literary analysis-speak or a random warbling of fake-words that make me sound like Ozzy Osbourne; and B) I am finding that I am living in the Twilight Zone because every hour in my day is equal to seven human hours and I pretty much have three hours to get everything done. I just have yet to find Rod Serling lurking in a corner somewhere with his cigarette.
These are Oreo Bunny Pops and they’re pretty self-explanatory and simple to boot.
You can make them in pop form (as shown) or in little cute bunny head form, like this:
I almost like the head thing better because if you think about it, it’s less violent than rabbit heads on sticks. I mean, who are we? Angry, cakeless French running around with Marie Antoinette’s noggin on a stick? But I digress.
Anyway, since I’m rambling and someone needs to sedate me soon, I’ll give you the recipe so we can both continue this friendship maturely and with dignity.
Just stuff my face with bunny heads, please.
1 pkg golden Oreos
1 pkg white chocolate bark
Pink Mike ‘n Ikes or Good ‘n Plenty candies
1. If you’re making pops, gently pierce the filled center of the Oreos with a lollypop stick, careful not to go through the entire cookie. Allow them to chill for a couple minutes (about 20) in the freezer to better adhere. If you’re going popless, skip this step and proceed to #2.
2. Melt white chocolate bark according to package directions until melted and smooth. Dip Oreo pops or plain Oreos in the melted chocolate, coating completely and evenly, allowing excess to drip off. Place heads and/or pops on a foil-lined baking sheet.
3. While still wet, immediately decorate your bunny faces. I had cool eyeball sprinkles from Halloween which I picked up at Hobby Lobby (but I’ve also seen them at Michael’s craft stores), but for some, I used a simple blue or black sequin sprinkle. For noses, I used pink Skittles (‘S’ side down) or cute heart-shaped quinns from Valentine’s Day. Some bunnies got Tic-Tac teeth while others are scared of your mouth and their impending death and they are keeping their mouths shut. And for ears, lightly dunk the ends of the Mike ‘n Ikes or Good ‘n Plenty candies in chocolate, then gently press them to the tops of the bunny heads to adhere.
4. Repeat until you’re finished decorating, then pop in the freezer for a bit to harden and set, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately!
Have a great Wednesday! I’ll be back blabbing and being a psycho tomorrow, promise.
