Paleo Chocolate Bunnies

Kelsey has been all excited for the Easter Bunny and Easter egg hunts this year. However, with her being lactose intolerant, we’re not buying any of the fun chocolate candies everyone else is getting. I know, I’m so mean. But her stomach will thank me.

So, to make up for it, paleo chocolate bunnies to the rescue. These bunnies are super adorable. I picked up a silicon mold in the Easter section at Walmart but there are similar ones on Amazon.

These paleo chocolate bunnies are a little on the dark/bitter chocolate side, so if you love dark chocolate, these are perfect for you. My kids actually LOVE dark chocolate so that’s not an issue for us. If you want them a bit sweeter, you can use sweetened coconut (they just won’t be paleo anymore). My husband is not usually a dark chocolate fan but he really enjoys these. Like, he ate the whole first batch before I could take pictures.

Which meant I had to make another batch. I hate when that happens…

But not really. Because any excuse to make chocolates is a good one. Especially when they’re as easy to make as these.

I should mention though, these chocolates need to be kept refrigerated. Due to the coconut oil, they will get really soft/melty at room temperature. It’s just the nature of using real ingredients vs. a bunch of additives to prevent that from happening. So if you’re planning on putting these in eggs to hide, make sure you hide them all in the fridge, ok? ????

  • Place your chocolate mold on a flat sheet pan and set aside.
  • Melt the coconut oil and shortening in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave at 50% power for 45 seconds. Stir well and continue to melt at 50% power in 15 second intervals until melted.
  • Stir in the honey, mix well, and heat for 10 seconds to help the honey incorporate.
  • Add the vanilla, cocao/cocoa powder, and salt. Mix really well then, using a spoon, pour the chocolate into your silicon molds. I found using a spoon to transfer the chocolate easier than pouring. You can also make this in a large glass measuring cup for easier pouring.
  • Sprinkle the chocolates with shredded coconut if using.
  • Place the mold/pan in the freezer and freeze until solid, about 15 minutes or overnight. Carefully remove the chocolates from the mold and store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.


Yield will vary depending on the molds you use.
Chocolates must be stored in the refrigerator, they will melt at room temperature.
