Chocolate Easter Bunny
Why I Love This Recipe
Chocolate Easter bunnies are an Easter basket staple. But homemade chocolate Easter bunnies are so much more delightful, and they’re actually easy to make. You can pick your own chocolate--milk, white, dark, or something else. Learn how to make chocolate Easter bunnies and give treats made with love this holiday season.
Ingredients You'll Need
* Chocolate disks
* Bunny molds
* Jelly beans (optional)
If you don’t have a bunny mold then you can pick them up at a local craft store. Make sure you have a mold for both sides of the bunny.
Melt the chocolate according to directions; microwaves do work but a double boiler always provides a more even melt with less burning.
Carefully pour chocolate into both halves of the mold. Tip the mold to get an even coat in all of the little details of the bunny’s features. Let this layer set for a while. Then pour more chocolate inside until you reach the top of the mold. Let them sit for a second or two so when you put both halves together you don’t get an oozing chocolate mess. Clip the molds together and let them set to harden. You can place them in the freezer to speed up the process, and it makes it easier to remove the molds. Use a sharp knife to trim off any excess chocolate.
If you want to fill your chocolate bunnies with jelly beans, then after the first layer of the features has set, pour in a little more chocolate into the bunny with jelly beans. Make sure to get fresh chocolate along the edges, so when pressing the two sides together, you get a seal.
