How to Make Homemade Chocolate Easter Bunnies
- INGREDIENTS FOR SOLID CHOCOLATE BUNNIES (full printable recipe below)
- 3-D Fat Sitting Bunny mold or any chocolate bunny mold
- Pour chocolate into a microwave safe bowl, heat 1 minute on high. Stir until creamy. If chocolate is not melted, continue heating at 60% power in 30 second intervals, stirring between until melted and creamy.
- Add a small amount (about 1 teaspoon for this mold) of the melted chocolate to the mold. Using a small clean paint brush, bring the chocolate up the sides and to the edges.
- Hold mold upside down and tap out any excess chocolate.
- Lay right side up on the counter and lightly tap chocolate back into position (this will also get rid of any air bubbles).
- Place in the refrigerator until hardened about 5 minutes or until the chocolate is no longer shiny.
- Add your favorite filling (find three options below)
- Cover with remaining melted chocolate NOTE: If chocolate is too hard, heat again in the microwave. This time only 30 seconds.
- Place in the refrigerator to harden.
- Using some of the chocolate, add a dollop where the eye will go, press and hold eye in place until chocolate has hardened enough to hold the eye.
- Wrap with foil chocolate wrapper
Candy Eyes—Gift Options
Here’s how I address the eyes. If I plan on placing the chocolate bunny on a cupcake or in a clear gift bag where the bunny will be seen, I add an eye. If the bunny will be placed in something that isn’t see through like an Easter tin, I leave off the eye and wrap it in a foil chocolate wrapper (I found my wrappers on the candy making isle at my local craft store).
