Equipment

  • 1 heatproof bowl
  • 1 chocolate mold
  • 5 melt clips

Ingredients

  • cup chocolate Merckens is the best melting chocolate
  • food coloring

Instructions

  • Place about three inches of water in a medium to a small pan.
  • Next, place a heat-proof bowl on top of the pan. Make sure to use one that is bigger than the pan.
  • Bring water to a boil and place the melting chocolate in the bowl.
  • Once the water is boiling, turn the heat down to medium to low. Mix chocolate thoroughly.
  • Add the food coloring before the chocolate is fully melted and mix well.
  • Fill both chocolate molds to the top and look underneath the mold to see air pockets. If there are, use a knife or toothpick to get rid of the bubbles.
  • Place the chocolate-filled molds together and clip the edges to all the sides.
  • Let the chocolate cool on your kitchen counter for two or more hours.
  • Place the mold in the refrigerator for only 15 minutes if you like.
  • Once the chocolate is no longer warm to the touch, take off clips and gently pull the mold off in sections. You'll see the chocolate lift from the mold. Work your way around the bunny until it lifts clean of the mold.
  • Lift the bunny out of the mold carefully and trim off excess chocolate.
  • Trim the bottom of the bunny so that the surface is flat. The bunny will stand if you trimmed it well.
