These Easter cookies are delicious and super easy to make. They look adorable and are the perfect Easter cookie. They are can easily be made gluten-free and are all-natural.
Before Halloween, I made White Chocolate Covered Mummy Cookies. My husband loved them and requested that I make a version of these cookies for every holiday.
I failed epically at that and haven’t made any since those cookies but that changed for Easter. I had been looking at my blog and noticed I didn’t have a lot of Easter blog posts and no Easter desserts. I love baking so I know at least the dessert part needed to change.
I started brainstorming ideas and remembered the mummy cookies and came up with a fun idea to do the same kind of things but with bunnies.
White Chocolate Covered Easter Cookies
These cookies can also easily be made gluten-free. Annie’s has gluten-free Cocoa & Vanilla Bunny Grahams that can replace the regular chocolate ones I used. And replace the chocolate sandwich cookies with gluten-free versions.
I didn’t need mine to be gluten-free but I did want them to be all-natural. I used Trader Joe’s Joe-Joes, Annie’s Chocolate Bunny Grahams, Whole Foods white chocolate chips, and Whole Foods brand of all-natural food dyes.
It’s really easy to make a large amount of these or just a quick dozen. And as long as you are careful with the melted chocolate it can be a fun treat to make with kids. You can also just have the kids place the bunnies on the cookies if you don’t want them messing with the melted chocolate.
However, you decide to make these Easter cookies they are sure to be a hit. They are a new favorite in my house.
How to Dye White Chocolate
White chocolate is perfect for dyeing to create colorful treats. It’s also very easy to dye white chocolate and you can make all kinds of colors!
Simply melt your white chocolate. I prefer to use a double boiler, I use a stainless steel bowl over a pot of boiling water. You can also melt it slowly in the microwave.
Once your chocolate is melted you want to slowly add your food dye until you get the color you are wanting. You want to work quickly as the chocolate will cool quickly and be hard to work with. If it starts to cool too much you can rewarm it to get it back to a workable consistency.
That’s all you have to do to dye white chocolate. Once you get the hang of it you will be able to make all kinds of delicious treats, including these white chocolate covered Easter cookies.
- 2 cups white chocolate morsels
- 16 chocolate sandwich cookies
- 16 chocolate bunny grahams
- all natural food dye
- In a double boiler, I used a stainless steel bowl over a pot of boiling water, melt the white chocolate. You can also use the microwave, just be careful as it will melt fast.
- Once your chocolate has melted, add your food coloring, use a few drops at a time until you get the desired color. If making more than one color simply divide the chocolate into different bowls.
- Take one cookie at a time on a fork and dip in the chocolate. Allow the chocolate to drip off of the cookie for a few seconds and then place on waxed paper.
- After you finish covering the cookie in chocolate, place one chocolate bunny on top.
- Allow the cookies to harden. You can stick them in the fridge to speed up the process.
If your chocolate started to get too thick you can stick it back on the stove for a couple of minutes to re-melt it.
