Spring Hop Along PEEPS Party!

Spring Hop Along PEEPS Party!

Hop Along PEEPS Party | PEEPS Truffles by JavaCupcake

Horray! It’s almost time for Spring and I am so super excited for the sunshine and warmer weather!  Springtime also means PEEPS bunnies and chicks and lots of delicious, fun recipes to make and eat!  So when Christi of Love from the Oven and Michelle from Sugar Swings! Serve Some asked me to participate in the Spring Hop Along PEEPS Party, I jumped on the chance!

I mean seriously – look at all the bloggers participating in this… I am a HUGE fan of EVERY SINGLE ONE of them! Make sure you take the time to click over to their blogs and check out all the fun food and crafts they’ve made… all featuring PEEPS!

Oh… and guess what?  There’s a PEEPS prize pack giveaway in this party too!! See below for all the details and to enter to WIN! 

What I’ve made for this party are Spring PEEPS Truffles… but not just any truffles.  I made Amaretto Truffles dressed them up super cute for Spring by rolling them in fun sprinkles and jimmies and topped them with a rainbow assortment of PEEPS bunnies!

A friend of mine said it looked like these bunnies were pooping truffles… hehe What do you think?

I think these cute little bunnies would look perfect on display at your Easter party!  You wouldn’t even have to put a PEEP on every single one… maybe just a couple sitting on top of a few truffles on your display.  SO CUTE!

Spring Hop Along PEEPS Party - PEEPS Truffles by JavaCupcake

Yield: 24 PEEPS truffles

Spring PEEPS Truffles



  • 250g Lindt Excellence 50% chocolate
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream (I used 32%)
  • 3 Tbsp flavoring (I used Disaronno - but you could use any liquor or flavoring you wanted)
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter


  • Sprinkles/Jimmies - pastel colors, Spring/Easter assortments
  • Sanding sugar
  • Sugar pearls
  • 24 PEEPS bunnies
  • toothpics
  • Spring colored mini cupcake liners

Supplies for Rolling Truffles

  • Baking sheet
  • Wax paper
  • Melon baller
  • small bowls
  • forks/spoons
  • small plates


  1. Finely chop the chocolate and place it in a medium glass bowl.
  2. Put the cream, butter and amaretto (or other flavoring) in a medium pot over medium-high heat.
  3. Stirring often, heat cream until it just beings to bubble. Remove immediately and pour over the chopped chocolate.
  4. Let the chocolate and cream sit, untouched, for 1 minute.
  5. Stir gently until smooth being careful not to create any air bubbles.
  6. Cool to room temperature, cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  7. Prepare all your supplies before you begin rolling truffles... Line baking sheet with wax paper. Place sprinkles, cocoa, sugar in small bowls and lay out forks & melon baller.
  8. Scoop 3/4in-1in balls of chocolate using the melon baller. Gently and quickly roll the chocolate in your hand until a ball forms. The chocolate will begin to melt by the heat of your hands, so work quickly. Place each ball 1in apart and in rows on your prepared baking sheet. Chill in the freezer for 5-10 minutes after all the balls are rolled. While they are chilling, prepare small plates by covering them with wax paper. Prepare one plate for each variation of coatings.
  9. Using a spoon or fork, lift one rolled ball at a time off the tray. Drop it into your desired coating and roll around until completely covered. Place coated truffle onto prepared plate. NOTE: Keep like truffles together... you don't want them to touch and get contaminate each other!
  10. Place each truffle in a mini cupcake liner.
  11. When ready to serve and display, press a toothpick into the bottom of a PEEPS bunny and place it into the top of the truffle.
  12. Store in a container with a lid in your freezer or refrigerator until ready to serve. Best served cold.
