Bunny tail Cake Pops

There may be fresh snow on the ground outside, but that wont damper the excitement of Easter around here! In our household Easter reigns right up there with Christmas. And rightly so, the Resurrection of our Jesus was God's ultimate purpose for sending His only son to earth.  These "Bunny tail" treats are the first of several activities to help us celebrate this special week. Sure, bunnies really don't have anything to do with Easter, but they sure are cute and fun!

Bunny Tail Cake Pops

1 chocolate cake, 9x13" size
1 [8 ounce] package Cream Cheese, softened
Lollipop Sticks
18 ounces Chocolate
1/8 cup Canola Oil
1 bag sweetened Coconut Flakes

Bake one traditional chocolate cake in a 9x13" pan, following the directions of the recipe or box.
After baking, and once cake is completely cooled, use your hands to crumble the cake into a large mixing bowl.
Add the cream cheese to the cake and mix together.
Using a cookie scoop or your hands, form [approx] 1" balls with the cake mixture.
Place the balls of cake on a wax paper, covered baking sheet. 
Using lollipop sticks, place and press down, a stick in the center of each cake ball. 
Once all done, chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. 
While the cake pops are chilling, melt 18 ounces of chocolate [I used white chocolate] and 1/8 cup of canola oil, in a saucepan. 
Stir until fully melted and smooth.
Remove pops from refrigerator. Dip the entire ball of cake into the melted chocolate until thoroughly coated. After letting the excess drip off, return the cake ball to wax paper, 
Immediately coat the cake ball with coconut. 
[I gently pressed the coconut into the chocolate, helping to shape it.]
Once all cake pops are complete, chill for 1 hour. 
To store, cover and keep in the refrigerator.

  1. I love these bunny tails - what a simple, effective (and yummy!) idea!
    I'm making a 'Bunny Challenge' badge to fundraise for my Girl Guide unit. I am hoping to include this as activity on the badge. Are you happy for me to include one of your pictures and a brief description in the resources pack I'm making to go with the badge? I'll credit you and put a link to this page. I'll even send you a badge if you want!! Thank you :)
