These may look like Peeps, but they’re actually white chocolate covered mini pound cakes! The perfect quick & easy Easter dessert treat!

Easy Easter Bunny CakesAffiliate LinksI love the look of holiday Peeps marshmallows, but I am not really a fan of the taste (or of marshmallows in general, actually!). To create a fun twist on the Peeps aesthetic, I whipped up these super easy bunny cakes that look just like Peeps, but taste like a delicious mix of buttery pound cake, white chocolate, and sugar sprinkles.

What You’ll Need:

Frozen Pound CakeStart by slicing the pound cake in half as shown with a serrated bread knife.

Bunny Pound CakesUse the bunny cookie cutter to cut the pound cake (I was able to get six bunnies from my pound cake).

How to Make Peeps Bunny Shaped CakesIn the microwave, melt the white melting wafers in 30 second increments, stirring well after each.

Making Easter Bunny Mini Cake TreatsPlace the bunnies on a wire rack, and spoon the melted white chocolate over the cakes. Gently tap the rack up and down on the counter several times to smooth the finish.

White Chocolate Covered Mini Easter Bunny CakesTop the cakes with colorful sugar sprinkles in pastel bright Easter colors to mimic Peeps marshmallows.
