Create a fun twist on the traditional chocolate Easter egg with this Easter Bunny Milkshake tutorial.
Today I’m creating an Easter treat that’s fun, super easy and an absolute winner with the kids. I first saw the Easter Bunny Milkshake online last year and thought that it was a fab idea. My son loves milkshakes and Easter eggs so the two of them together is his idea of bliss! I made a basic version last Easter and while Mr 5 loved it, I wanted to re-create it this year and jazz it up. Indulgent Easter Milkshake for one coming up!
Now I’m aware that there is rather a lot of sugar here – it’s obviously not something the kiddies will be drinking every day, it’s more of a once a year kind of treat.
In order to prevent fingerprints all over the bunny, I was mindful not to handle the chocolate bunny on the front. I held it from the back. If you’ve got a pair of gloves for specifically working with chocolate, you might like to wear those.
Before you pour the chocolate milk into the hollow bunny, turn it upside down and check the base – we want to make sure there are no holes or areas that the chocolate milk will leak from. You can add a little of the melted chocolate to any areas that need patching up.
To make this Easter Bunny Milkshake, you will need:
Mini speckled eggs (halved)
2 Straws (plus one spare to prop up the bunny head)
Other assorted chocolates/candy or ice cream (optional)
How to make an Easter Bunny Milkshake
Let’s get started!
Boil the kettle and fill a mug with hot water. Take your sharp knife and leave it in the hot water for approx. 30 seconds. Remove the knife from the hot water and wipe the excess water off with a paper towel.
I found it easier to do the next part while the bunny was standing up but you can lay the bunny down if you prefer. Take the hot knife and gently insert it in the bunny’s neck. Slowly start to cut around the neck with the hot knife. Return the knife to the hot water if you need to – just wipe off any excess chocolate in the paper towel first. You should now have a headless bunny (eek!). Pop the head aside for a minute.
Pop some chocolate melts in a bowl and microwave them until they’re soft and completely melted. Use a teaspoon to add some of the melted chocolate around the rim of the bunny’s neck. Working quickly before it dries, stick some speckled egg halves and sprinkles around the rim. Keep in mind that the bunny’s head will be positioned on one side, so you don’t need to go crazy with the sweets there.
Pour the chocolate milk into the hollow chocolate bunny. Leave a gap of approximately 1 inch from the top to prevent spillage.
To attach the bunny head, work out where you would like it positioned and add some melted chocolate around the rim of the neck in that area. Pop the spare straw in on that side to help prop the head up. Holding the head from the back (to prevent fingerprints on the front), secure the head in place on top of the melted chocolate. When the chocolate melts solidify, they should hold the head in place.
Pop in the straws and top with any extra treats.
This Easter Bunny Milkshake is sure to bring a smile to the faces of little kids and big kids alike.
On my travels I just so happened to come across this super cute chocolate unicorn. How sweet is her little face?! I just didn’t have the heart to cut off her head and turn her into a milkshake, so I popped her back in the box until I decide what to do with her. Seems a shame to just gobble her up!
