Making 3-D Solid Chocolate Pieces

Easter will be here before you know it. Make your own 3-D solid bunnies quick and easy! Remember, you can use any mold you like that has a front and a back or a left side and a right side.
So Have Fun, Save Money & Tell Everyone You Made it Yourself!
Solid 3-D chocolate bunny with basket.
Supplies Needed:
  • Candy eyes # (S-5100B)
  • Gold bow with twist ties # (GTTB)
  • Angel flake coconut, used for grass on basket # (CK76-301)
  • 1/2 lb. dark green chocolate  # (MDGH)
  • Chocolate foil eggs or jelly beans. (Available at store location)
Molds cut.

Molds with binder clips, ready for pouring chocolate.
Lets Get Started
  1.  With a pair of scissors cut the pieces out of the mold leaving an 1/2" to an 1" around the cavity of the mold.
  2. Cut a hole in the bottom of the mold.
  3. Line up the edges of the mold and use the binder clips to clip the mold tightly together.
  4. Melt the chocolate. We suggest using a plastic container and microwave at 1/2 power and for 30 seconds at a time. stir after each 30 seconds until melted.
  5. Pour melted chocolate into bottom of the mold.
  6. Place in freezer for approx. 20 minutes. It should look like the mold is pulling away from the mold is most areas.
  7. Pull off clips, and remove one side of mold. If it does not want to come out, with slight pressure, put the mold back into freezer for about 5 more minutes
  8. Un mold Bunny Rabbit.
*HINT: To make bunny sit perfectly flat,take a cookie sheet and place it on the stove burner on low. Take bunny and set on the cookie sheet to melt the bottom flat, then place on a piece of waxed paper. It dry's in seconds.
To Decorate:
  1. Use chocolate as a glue and add eyes & bow.
  2. Melt dark green chocolate and add angel flake coconut so its thick.
  3. Spoon on top of basket.
  4. Add chocolate foil eggs or jelly beans wile the chocolate is still wet.
  5. Let harden. 

Now you are ready to wrap it and put it in an Easter basket! Have Fun!
