Solid Chocolate Bunnies
(Toronto, ON Canada)
I have 3 children. Needless to say that between the Easter bunny and family, we have more chocolate than any household should reasonably have.
That being said, I was wondering if I could use those giant solid chocolate bunnies for making candy molds?
Is it possible to melt those 1 lb chocolate bunnies down and use them to fill chocolate molds? I think it is, but some people are skeptical.
My son has his First Communion in a few weeks and I'd like to make chocolate lollipops that are crosses for the event.
It would be nice on the budget if I could just use the chocolate we have lying around from Easter rather than go out and buy even more chocolate to make the lollipops.
I see no reason in the world why you couldn't use your solid chocolate bunnies for making molded chocolate crosses. It's a great idea, in fact!
Just cut/chop the chocolate in manageable pieces for melting in the double boiler and you'll be on your way.
I hope you'll come back and show off your finished First Communion Crosses
when you get them done. We'd love to see them!
