Chocolate bunnies have always been a tradition in my family for Easter. The Easter Bunny would always leave a chocolate bunny in my basket and Mama would always have them around for decoration throughout the Easter season, too. I’ve carried on the tradition in my own family, but decided to make them myself years ago. I thought I’d share with you how easy they are to make.

You can usually find candy molds in the shape of a bunny at Hobby Lobby, or other local craft stores, Walmart, Target, etc. I purchased this one online for a large bunny with a basket. I think he’s a cutie.

Start with your favorite chocolate chips or a chocolate bar that you’ve chopped into smaller pieces. Semi-sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, you name it. Whichever type of chocolate you prefer works for these. You’ll also want to grab some coconut oil to use with these.

Add your chocolate and coconut oil to a large, microwave safe measuring cup or bowl with a pour spout and microwave according to the directions in the recipe. Stir well until the chocolate is smooth.

Pour the chocolate into your mold and let it dry until has hardened. The time will vary depending on your mold. Once your chocolate bunny has set, place it into the freezer for about 15-30 minutes to loosen it from the mold.

Carefully remove it from the mold and wrap in cellophane if you’d like for gifting.
