Chocolate Covered Berry Bunnies
I recently made Chocolate Covered Strawberry Penguins and boy were they cute!
With Easter coming up, I wanted something else to make that was sweet and adorable.
I decided to make more chocolate-covered strawberries. The carrot ones are pretty popular, but I wanted something more unique and fun.
So, I decided to make some Chocolate Covered Berry Bunnies. I got out my Wilton Candy Melts. These are the pink ones.
I put the whole bag into a microwave safe bowl, and set the timer for one minute.
Once I stirred them well, they took about another minute to get totally warm and melty. Your time could vary since it was pretty chilly here still.
I washed and dried, then took the stems off the strawberries.
Once I did that, I was ready to dip them.
When you dip them, place the wide end down on the tray. I used parchment paper to keep them from sticking to the cookie sheet.
Use a little bit of the melted pink candy to attach the Sixlets to the face, then add the nose. Use a little more of the melted candy to add the eyes.
To finish the tray of bunnies, use whatever colors you want for the mouth. If you have tic tacs, you could add them under the cheeks for bunny teeth too, I didn’t have any.
Use a little cardstock or paper, cut into two bunny ears and then cut a toothpick in half.
Attach the toothpick half to the bunny ears and insert into the back of the strawberry bunny head.
Stick the ears in about halfway down the back so that the bunny ears stick up well.
You could fold one ear down too, it’s cute.
Each one of these has a different expression, and look.
Yummy and delicious!
