I finally got my easter shopping done today. It was aisles and aisles of sugar at Walmart! My son is nuts for marshmallows. He loves the marshmallow peeps, so of course I bought him some. As I was loading my cart with sugar (I let him trade in candy for hot wheels by the way!) I noticed this awesome silicone bunny pan. Now I haven’t mastered a way to make marshmallows but I thought it would be perfect for a strawberry fat bomb.
The packaging for the bunny pan says that it’s a “baking pan.” However, it also says it’s meant for no higher then 400 degrees for only short periods of time. I’ll have to see if I can use it in the microwave. It’s too long to fit in the microwave properly so I cut the mold in half with a pair of scissors. It was very very easy. I was thinking about making bunny cookies. First, we’ll make fat bombs! I found a similar bunny mold pan on Amazon as well made by Wilton if you can’t seem to find it in a store.
The only thing that gets melted is the butter. (If you’re using truvia add it to the butter when it comes out that way the crystals get dissolved.) If you melt the coconut as well then your fat bomb will do awful things like separate and it won’t be very pretty or taste that good. When it separates you get a layer of coconut oil and a layer of butter. They should really be mixed together at the end for the best result. So do not heat the coconut oil.
This is 49 grams of strawberry, about 1/2 cup almost. Not a lot, huh? Three do the job though, not to worry!
Add your melted butter and blend with an immersion blender or hand mixer (or blender, whatever you have.)
I have disposable piping bags in my house at all times. I use them for mini muffins usually. These fatbombs came out nice and thick though so I was very happy to be piping them into their molds. It’s so much easier this way. You can use a ziploc bag with a hole cut in the corner, or just spoon them in. I froze them up for 20 mins in the freezer, melted some chocolate and then with a toothpick dabbed on eyes and a nose. They taste like strawberry milk!
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 ounces heavy cream
- 50 grams strawberry diced (about 3 regular sized strawberries)
- 1/4 cup sugar equivalent or 1 tbsp plus 2 tsp Truvia (or sweeten to taste!)
- Dice strawberries and add heavy cream.
- Blend together with an immersion blender.
- Melt butter in the microwave about 30 secs (add granulated sweetener if you're using one at this point so the crystals dissolve) and set aside.
- Measure out coconut oil and set aside. DO NOT HEAT.
- Add sweetener and combine all ingredients well with an immersion blender.
- With a piping bag, pipe fatbombs into your mold (it's thick enough to do this!) or spoon mixture.
- Freeze at least 20 mins or longer.
- Remove bunnies from the mold, place on wax paper and melt one piece or less sugar free chocolate.
- With a toothpick dab on eyes and nose for a real peep look. Return to freezer for another 10-20 mins. Stores in the freezer.
- This makes either 24 trim and thin bunnies or 12 rather thick peeps. I usually make them on the smaller side to get more.
