Inside: These faux chocolate bunnies are so easy and a charming addition to your spring decor. Upcycle old mismatched decorations into this classic Easter treat that looks like real chocolate! ➡
I’ve got a little secret.
My chocolate Easter bunnies are not real. And they are so cheap and easy (this post is starting to sound all kinds of wrong😂).
Can you tell they aren’t actually chocolate? I’m in awe of how real they look after a simple spray of brown paint!
This is not a new idea and faux chocolate bunnies have been around for a while. But I wish I had tried this one sooner. So just in case you haven’t either, I’m sharing how easy it was, because not only are they adorable, it’s a great way to use old ceramic decorations that you don’t love anymore, or that don’t match.
Besides, who needs all that real chocolate around calling your name all day?

What you need to make fake chocolate rabbits.
You only need two items to make this craft:
- Ceramic, resin, glass, metal, or even plastic bunnies
- Chocolate colored spray paint
Instructions for making faux chocolate rabbits.
My motley crew of rabbits are ones I’ve collected over the years, plus a couple I picked up at the thrift store.
Here they are looking all eager for their new makeover. Some cute, one a little creepy, and none really going together:
1. First I cleaned them with soap and water and let them thoroughly dry.
2. Then I sprayed a couple of light coats of the spray paint on each side, making sure they were no longer tacky before turning them.
And that was all! Is that the easiest Easter craft ever?
Now that I’m hooked by how cute these are, I’ll be on the lookout for good candidates at the thrift store to add to this collection.
As you’re rabbit hunting, keep in mind any Easter figurines like eggs, baskets, or chicks would also look cute made over in chocolate!
I grouped them together on my Easter dining table, making a chocolate bunny buffet nested into some green Spanish moss on two white cake pedestals. This Easter they were a fun addition to an English Garden Easter tablescape inspired by mother-in-law’s Old Country Roses china.

They remind me of one of my favorite Easter childhood memories which was waking up to a basketful of goodies nestled among our dyed Easter eggs from the Easter Bunny. I still buy chocolate bunnies for my adult kids when they are here at Easter.
Only these don’t tempt us to bite the ears off.
