There is only a week away from Easter, this year I'm making chocolate bunny to give to people instead of store brought Easter eggs. I found this "Make your own Easter Gifts" pack from IGA supermarket at $10. It includes all the things you needed to make 12 chocolate bunnies. I buy more chocolate melts and have been making many bunnies (I do lost count how many I've made as I eat some along the way...)
I have been experiment different flavour, and I like the Hundred & Thousand Bunny and Milk top bunny the most. The pure white choc bunny takes longer time to set and it doesn't keep well at room temperature. It would be great to have more mould so it would take me faster to do the job. I found that reheating the melted chocolate is not good, so I put the extra chocolate into other chocolate mould to make something else rather than washing if off. In my first lot of chocolate, I forget to press medium on the microwave and burn my chocolate so please be careful and never overheat the chocolate!
Aren't those bunnies adorable? They're so easy to make and you should try it!
Easter Bunny Popsticks
(make 4 each)
For the milk chocolate bunny:
120g milk chocolate
Hundred & Thousand sprinkles
For the milk top bunny:
30g white chocolate
90g milk chocolate
- Wipe the mould clean with paper.
- Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl on medium heat for 1 minute, then 30 second on medium heat until the chocolate is all melted.
- Use a spoon to spoon chocolate into each mould until half full. Place a popstick into each mould, then tap onto the table to ease the air. Fill with more chocolate and tap again. Don't over fill and top with hundred & thousand sprinkles. Wipe clean and put into fridge for 15 minutes or until set.
- For the milk top bunny: melt white chocolate on medium heat until melted. Spoon chocolate into mould, tap off air and then put into fridge to set. Meanwhile, melt the milk chocolate on medium heat and lay a popstick into each mould. Spoon the milk chocolate over the milk chocolate and keep in the fridge for about an hour or until set.
