Do you know what's better than chocolate bunnies? Chocolate bunny-flavored ice cream. Yes, it exists, and you can try it in time for Easter. The sweet seasonal scoop was created by Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, an ice cream company dedicated to serving up an array of delicious flavors on the reg. Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams' Chocolate Bunny flavor is a festive addition to the shop's lineup, and it'll have you reaching for a spoon. It doesn't only taste like chocolate bunnies, though. Once you learn more about the flavor, you'll be craving dessert.
Jeni's new Chocolate Bunny ice cream flavor — which was officially launched on April 11 — was inspired by various Easter candies that you know and love. In addition to its iconic chocolate bunny taste, the selection mimics the flavors of Peeps marshmallows and "cream-filled eggs," according to a press release. With that being said, you can expect the sweet flavors of your go-to springtime candies with each and every scoop.
As you could imagine, a lot goes into making a flavor that delicious — and the process behind creating Jeni's' Chocolate Bunny ice cream will make your mouth water. Heck, it might even have you asking the Easter Bunny for ice cream instead of candy this year.
According to Jeni's, the Chocolate Bunny selection is made with a "lighter" version of its Milkiest Chocolate ice cream (apparently, it tastes just like a chocolate bar). That, my friends, is where the "chocolate bunny" flavor comes in. To mimic the flavors of Peeps and cream-filled eggs, the company adds a natural marshmallow essence and a vanilla essence. Between those three flavors (chocolate, marshmallow, and vanilla), you'll taste your favorite candies with every scoop.
That's not where the festive flavors end, though. According to Jeni's, the ice cream is also mixed with white chocolate curls that are dyed pink (thanks to beets). Apparently, those curls were inspired by the decorative grass that's used to fill Easter baskets every year. Therefore, in addition to candy-inspired flavors, the ice cream features a festive look that's reminiscent of popular Easter decor.

If you're hopping (er, I mean, hoping) to give Jeni's' Chocolate Bunny ice cream a try, you'll have to look beyond the freezer aisle of your grocery store.
