Bunny Butt Almond Joy Cheese Ball & FOOD FIGHT: Bunnies vs. Peeps
1/2cupfinely choppedcoconut flavored almonds (you can find them at the store)
1/2cupfinely chopped chocolate chips
2Tbspcrushed chocolate chips
About 1/2 cup toasted coconut for toppingtoasting is optional
1/2cupcoconut + 2-3 drops of green food coloring if making the grassuse gloves
You can crush and chop your almonds and chocolate chips (separately) in the food processor by pulsing them a few times.
(Personal note: I don't recommend using a Bullet, it will mash it. I used my Ninja food processor.)
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese for about a minute, until light and smooth.
On low speed, mix it powder sugar and then raise the speed to blend it well.
Scrape the sides and the bottom of the bowl, and mix again.
Fold in all your chocolate chips, coconut and almonds until evenly incorporated.
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.
In a shallow bowl, add the coconut saved for topping. Carefully roll the cheeseball in the coconut.
Shape the bunny butt by making a tail and paws. Even out the round shape of the bunny.
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.
