Ingredients Needed and Substitutions
To make the Easter bunny strawberries, you’ll need white melting wafers, black (or chocolate) melting wafers, marshmallows, pink sanding sugar sprinkles, pink heart sprinkles, and candy eyeballs. You can find the measurements needed and additional information in the recipe card.
- White Chocolate: You can use white candy melting wafers, white almond bark, or white chocolate for dipping the strawberries.
- Chocolate: For the bunny face, you’ll need black or chocolate candy melting wafers. You can also use chocolate chips, but we suggest adding a little shortening to thin it.
- Marshmallows: We used regular size (large) marshmallows to make the bunny ears.
- Sprinkles: To decorate the Easter bunny face and ears, we used candy eyeballs, heart-shaped sprinkles, and pink sugar sprinkles.
- Strawberries: You’ll also need a container of strawberries. Rinse the strawberries and then dry them very well. Dry strawberries are the key to having the melted chocolate stick well! Choose the bigger, wider strawberries out of the package to make the chocolate-dipped Easter bunny strawberries since the width gives you ample space to decorate the face.
Differences in White Chocolate Coatings
There are several different options when it comes to what you use to coat the strawberries. Here are several choices as well as a bit of information about each one to help you choose:
- White melting wafers are made from sugar, palm oil, milk, and vanilla. They are easy to melt and easy to work with. This is what I used to make my white chocolate-dipped strawberries.
- Couverture white chocolate discs are white chocolate in a disc form. They are made from cocoa butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla. It is top-of-the-line in terms of quality and price. This kind of white chocolate is not as easy to work with and needs to be tempered when melted.
- White chocolate chips are perfect when baking since they hold their shape. If you do want to use them for dipping or drizzling, add a teaspoon of shortening per 6 ounces of white chocolate chips when melting them to make it smoother.
- A white chocolate baking bar is white chocolate in a bar form, and you can use it to dip strawberries. Follow the melting instructions on the package.
- For a lighter version, try using sugar-free white chocolate chips. Follow the instructions on the package for melting the chocolate chips.
How To Make Edible Easter Bunny Ears
To make edible Easter bunny ears, cut the marshmallows in half. Then, cut slices off each half. Then, dip marshmallow pieces in pink sanding sugar sprinkles. Finally, use the white melted candy wafers to attach the ears to the coated strawberries.
Additional Easter Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Why stop with only making Easter bunny strawberries and carrot strawberries? Get creative and make other kinds of Easter chocolate-covered strawberries! Here are a few ideas:
Easter Egg Strawberries
To make Easter egg strawberries, dip the strawberries in melted white chocolate and use melted pastel-colored candy wafers to decorate them with lines, zig-zags, and dots as if you were decorating Easter eggs.
Easter Bunny Butt Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Coat the strawberries in melted white candy wafers. Next, to make the bunny paws, cut regular (large) marshmallows in half and use pink melted candy wafers to pipe a large circle in the middle of each half with three small circles along the bottom edge. Finally, attach the bunny paws with white melted candy wafers and attach a mini marshmallow to the middle of the strawberry for a tail.
How To Make Carrot Strawberries
First, be sure to choose the longer, more narrow strawberries from the package to make the chocolate-dipped carrot strawberries. Then, to make the carrot strawberries, melt orange candy wafers, and dip the strawberries in the orange candy coating. Next, place the dipped strawberries on a piece of parchment paper to set. Finally, drizzle additional candy coating over the strawberries to create the look of the ridges you’d see on a carrot.
