Bunny Butt Almond Joy Cheese Ball & FOOD FIGHT: Bunnies vs. Peeps

Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped coconut flavored almonds (you can find them at the store)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp crushed chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup powder sugar
  • About 1/2 cup toasted coconut for topping toasting is optional
  • 1/2 cup coconut + 2-3 drops of green food coloring if making the grass use gloves

Instructions

  1. You can crush and chop your almonds and chocolate chips (separately) in the food processor by pulsing them a few times.
  2. (Personal note: I don't recommend using a Bullet, it will mash it. I used my Ninja food processor.)
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese for about a minute, until light and smooth.
  4. On low speed, mix it powder sugar and then raise the speed to blend it well.
  5. Scrape the sides and the bottom of the bowl, and mix again.
  6. Fold in all your chocolate chips, coconut and almonds until evenly incorporated.
  7. Cut off a large square of saran wrap and line the inside of a bowl (like a soup bowl) with it. Add the cheeseball mixture on top of the saran wrap. Bring up the edges of the wrap together and tighten it. Make sure a ball is formed. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
  8. In a shallow bowl, add the coconut saved for topping. Carefully roll the cheeseball in the coconut.
  9. Shape the bunny butt by making a tail and paws. Even out the round shape of the bunny.
  10. Grass: Place the coconut in a bowl. Put on disposable gloves and squeeze a couple of drops of green food coloring on the gloves. Rub your hands together and rub the coconut in the bowl, coloring it green.
