We are hosting Easter dinner this year for our family. I am trying to break up some of the tasks from cleaning to cooking to shopping and do a little each day this week so that Saturday night does not turn into an ugly cyclone of pre-holiday prep.
Yesterday I made some “Bunny Bites” that will look adorable on the dessert table.
I’m sure you have seen these before – though you more than likely saw them made with Hershey’s Kisses or Hugs chocolates. I intended to make them with Hugs, but while shopping for free stuff at CVS, I was unable to find Hershey’s Hugs. Instead I picked up white chocolate eggs by Dove. Turns out they make a DELICIOUS substitute for the Hugs – very rich in flavor!
You will need:
:: Pretzels (I use the square window-like ones)
:: Dove White Chocolate Eggs
:: Easter colored M&Ms
How to make:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
Arrange pretzels on a cookie sheet.
I tried to use a whole egg on each pretzel but it was a bit too big. Instead I cut each egg in half and that worked much better.
Bake for 10 minutes (as opposed to just 5 minutes if you’re using Hershey’s Hugs). The chocolate should be soft and melted, but still retaining its original shape.
Press an M&M into each piece of white chocolate.
Refrigerate until fully cooled and then store in an air tight container.
