{Recipe} Bunny Tail Treats!

How to make CUTE Easter Bunny Tail Treats!

Hippity Hop! Easter is on its way! I have had this little idea in my head for awhile but just found time to play in the kitchen! This recipe is super easy too so you can have the kids help you in the kitchen (especially rolling the balls and coconut). I placed my “bunny tail treats” in cute pink and white polka dot treat boxes. They would also be super cute placed on a cake stand at an Easter Party! However you serve and display them they’re cute and oh so tasty.

How to make CUTE Easter Bunny Tail Treats!

Easter Bunny Tail Truffles

Servings 36 1" treats

Ingredients
  

  • 1 8- ounce package cream cheese softened
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract you can substitute this for coconut if you want a stronger coconut flavor
  • 2-3 cups sweetened coconut

Instructions
 

  • Be sure cream cheese is softened (can microwave for 10-15 seconds to help).
  • Use an electric mixer with paddle attachment to beat cream cheese until fluffy.
  • Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until mixture is a thick dough. If dough is able to hold shape in a 1-inch ball, then you're good to go! If it's too sticky, then add more powdered sugar.
  • Roll balls in coconut. If you have trouble with it sticking, just press it in a bit or use a little bit of corn syrup.
  • Enjoy!

  1. Courtney, these cotton tails are so so cute! I LOVE coconut so much and know I’d be eating waaaay too many of these cuties since they’re smothered in it!

    1. Hi. I am going to try these. They look adorable! My question is, my family members are not huge almond extract fans, can you recommend any substitute? Vanilla maybe? Or perhaps I should just cut down on the amount of almond. Any help would be appreciated!

  2. Very cute! Where did you get the cute box?

  3. Cute Idea where did you get your boxes thanks Julie

  4. Ohhhh! These sound so yummy! This are going on the list for Eggstravaganza2013 :)

    My mom used to make something similar inside she would have a surprise maraschino cherry, very yummy!! These look delicious :)

  6. When do you add the almond extract? Right after beating the cream cheese?

    1. Hi Marilyn! Yes, I fluff the cream cheese then add the almond and 1 cup of powdered sugar, beat a bit, then another cup – and so forth.

      1. Thanks, Courtney! Simple, adorable and tasty – these are going to be great to take to my ladies class.

        1. Took these to the ladies class and they were a huge hit! Many of the ladies wanted the recipe and some even took a couple of the bunny tails home with them. It even tempted a diabetic to sample it as she loves coconut. This recipe is a keeper!

  7. These are adorable. ‘Easier than baking “cake balls” too. :) What a sweet idea–and lovely photos. :)

    And how am I just now discovering your blog?! It looks lovely too. :) ♥

  8. So adorable and easy!!!

    I have a question I do not have a flat attachment for my mixer can it be done in a regular stand mixer

    1. Hi! I have not done it with a regular whisk attachment but I imagine that it will work just fine!

    Do they need to be refrigerated?

  12. I made these with my grandson and we had a blast. We added half of a cherry and almond extract, so yummy. A little sticky, but 5 cups of sugar is enough. Yes, we did put these in the frig.
