Bailey’s Chocolate Bunny Cocktail
Bailey’s Chocolate Bunny Cocktail recipe is a sweet, very chocolatey drink that is a delightful treat for adults and equally as fun! You can easily leave out the Bailey’s and make it kid-friendly chocolate drink they will love.
I’m sneaking in today to ramble on about these adorable Easter drinks. I killed about a dozen chocolate bunnies for this recipe, but this Bailey’s Chocolate Bunny Cocktail is probably the most appropriate drink for the occasion. Don’t you agree? It helps a lot that it is also super cute.
I love this time of year. Daylight savings “Spring Ahead” is actually my favorite day of the year besides Christmas. The extra hour of daylight makes me feel energized and gives me life! I don’t even care about the lost hour of sleep because the extra sunshine is worth it. Mr. Wishes thinks I’m crazy!
It’s seriously hard not to love these drinks. This is the greatest Easter treat idea ever, if I do say so myself! OK, they are right up there with my homemade version of Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs. Just what a I needed in life while I’m trying to diet…more chocolate. Whyyyyy in the world did I have to go and get obsessed with this right now?
I’m the most impatient person in the WORLD. The only real effort you need to make for these Bailey’s Chocolate Bunny Cocktail is using the best, sharpest knife possible. I found that it helps even more to heat up the knife before you do the cutting!
You can heat a pan of boiling water on the stove and dip the knife in and dry it off. If you want a quicker option, run the knife under really hot faucet water and then dry it off before cutting. Eventually you will get a handle on it! You may have to mutilate a bunny or two to get there, but you will get there.
If you’re in the Easter chocolate dessert mode, be sure to try out my Salted Caramel Easter Popcorn. The combination of sweet and salty gets me every time. People also tend to love my Easter Bunny Bark, which is an oldie but goodie. You will love it!
I also have an entire collection of Easter Recipes here. This collection has savory recipes as well as sweets. They are all great, don’t get me wrong, but I’m partial to my Easter Bunny Tail Chex Mix. Literally can’t stop eating that stuff.
Every bunny loves these cocktails. Ok, that was lame. Sorry. Excuse me while I go faceplant into one.
- 2 (1.5 Ounce) Hollow Chocolate Bunnies
- 3 Ounces Bailey’s
- 3 Ounces Chocolate Milk
- Serrated Knife
- Small Measuring Glass
- Small Drinking Glass
- Gold Paper Straws (or Easter straws)
- Gently unwrap just the head of each chocolate bunny.
- Using the serrated knife, gently remove the head with a sawing motion and little downward pressure so you don’t crack the entire thing. Be sure it’s a straight line, if you care about appearances.
- Pour the Bailey’s into the small measuring glass, followed by the chocolate milk.
- Pour the Bailey’s mixture into the drinking glass and then back into the measuring glass.
- Gently unwrap the chocolate bunnies the rest of the way, then fill each one with half the Bailey’s mixture.
- Using the knife again, remove about an inch from each straw.
- Place the trimmed straws into each bunny and enjoy!
- These are really easy to make in bulk for a party or a personal night in.
- These can be refilled multiple times. The best way to reuse them is to not unwrap the rest of their chocolate body before filling.
- Remove the Bailey’s for a fun chocolate milk drink, without alcohol, for the kids.
- Use larger bunnies in order to serve more of the drink. You’ll need to measure to see how much you’ll need to increase drink amounts in order to fill the larger bunnies. The ratio is 1:1.
- It’s important to use a (preferably HOT) serrated knife. I tried cutting them multiple ways and even tried various brands of chocolate bunnies. The only thing that worked was using a serrated knife, no matter the brand of bunny.
