Bunny Bath: Chocolate Pudding for Easter

Whether you call this a Bunny Bath or Chocolate Pudding for Easter or something else, this decadent chocolate dessert will delight kids and adults alike. This post was sponsored by Global Influence and product was provided by Hershey’s but all opinions are my own.

Chocolate Pudding for Easter

As a general rule, I don’t do cutesy. I don’t bake that often. My cookies tend to be more delicious layers of flavors than creativity decorated creations. Heck, most says I say no to dessert all together.

It’s just not me.

But when I pulled homemade chocolate pudding off the stove earlier today, and assembled these pudding desserts, the kids were gleefully surprised. Dubbing this dessert a “Bunny Bath,” the kids marveled over the cuteness and couldn’t wait to dig in. Heck, Paige even exclaimed about how creative I am in the kitchen.

Honestly, I have never seen them so excited.

Hersheys Easter Candy

Hershey’s recently sent me a box with a big selection of their Easter candies. I was challenged to create a delicious dessert recipe using the selection of chocolates and other goodies. It was such a fun assignment — and one that go me thinking about how best to do something a little different.

Easter Chocolate Pudding

This dessert begins with a homemade chocolate pudding. If you’ve never made chocolate pudding before, there are two things you should know: it’s simple to make, but it requires a bit of patience. See, with pudding you have to stir and stir and stir — and it seems like it will never thicken. But then suddenly a few bubbles (from boiling) will appear. Then, like magic, the pudding will thicken quickly.

So, that hot chocolate pudding is added to cute serving bowls. And then you tuck a Reese’s Reester Bunnies peanut butter bunny into each one. Finally, sprinkle with crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs. Once chilled, this pudding is a fun treat for kids and adults — perfect for Easter.
