Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chunks for Easter Time

This idea saved the bunnies!  Every year the kiddos get SO MUCH CHOCOLATE at Easter and the bunnies end up lasting wayyyyyy too long.  I find them in summer under beds, partially eaten.  I find them years later in the back of the freezer.  I pray that the dogs don’t find them and eat them.  This year, it all changes!  I made peanut butter cookies with Easter bunny parts and they are PERFECTION!  This is our favorite cookie around here (usually made with kisses) so it is an “of course”.  I am wondering why I didn’t do it eons ago. I strongly suggest you make these peanut butter cookies with chocolate chunks even if it means buying an “extra” bunny!

Admire your bunny for a bit and maybe even take a bite or two before getting started!


Ingredients Needed



Don’t schedule an entire day for this activity because it is a quick and easy one. This is such a super simple recipe for peanut butter cookies with chocolate chunks!

Step One

Make your cookie dough using a box mix or your favorite homemade peanut butter cookie recipe.

Place your cookies on a baking sheet (I love this oversized one best!) on top of a piece of parchment paper.

Step Two

While the cookies are baking (following directions for your recipe) – chop the chocolate bunny up into pieces. These could be tiny or huge depending on how much chocolate you want in your mouth at one time.

Step Three

When the cookies come out of the oven, use a spatula to place them on a cooling rack. While they are still warm, place the chocolate pieces gently on the tops. They will melt in a little and stick to the cookie.

Once they have cooled enough to eat, gobble them up! They are excellent dipped in milk and coffee!
