TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
- Use a chocolate melter if you have one or you can melt chocolate in microwave safe container.
Since microwaves vary, you will have to adjust the time to your microwave. Start with 30 seconds, stir well with wooden spoon, add 15 seconds as needed.
Heat until just melted. Chocolate should be warm not hot. Chocolate scorches very easily and will taste burnt if heated too long.
- While chocolate is melting, cut bunnies in half lengthwise and place on waxed or parchment paper sticky side up. They will reform as they sit there.
- Unwrap Rice Krispie treats and stick a lollipop stick or popsicle stick into each treat halfway.
- Spoon chocolate onto top of Rice Krispie treat and smooth chocolate until the entire top surface is covered.
- If chocolate starts to thicken, add a teaspoon of Crisco or shortening to the chocolate and mix.
- Place bunny on the chocolate covered Rice Krispie treat.
- Shake sprinkles onto the top of the Rice Krispie treat around the bunny.
Let set and harden. For quicker results and a harder coat, place in refrigerator for 30 min.
We used a serrated bread knife to cut the bunnies in half. They looked too big when we tried whole bunnies.
We found the sprinkles and treats at WalMart.
