One would think that the making of a chocolate Easter bunny would be simple.
You simply melt the chocolate, pour it into a bunny mold and out comes the sweetest chocolate bunny you ever would see.
This is not the case when you’re working with the type of chocolate bunnies that I have.
The chocolate is the easy part, but even so……..they don’t melt very easily.
And forget about pouring them neatly into the mold. The don’t conform to normal chocolate bunnies.
They pour where, when and how they want AND they they will be as bad ass as they want to be.
And the most important part.
The part that makes the chocolate bunny THE bunny.
You know, the bunny ears.
Well you try getting those damn things to stay on a ginormous chocolate head.
Every time they get placed on the head, the bunny lowers his head.
On. Off. On. Off. Times 50 per bunny.
The bunnies think they’re being funny, and it was the first 2 times, but the other 48 times it was quite frustrating.
Next year I’m gluing them on.
Yep. Next year they become permanent bunnies.
Note: These bunnies aren’t made for human consumption. They are made for me to practice patience.
It’s kind of like chocolate bunny therapy.
But don’t even get me started on the chocolate peep bunny.
That was almost like yoga as I patiently waited 30 minutes for Leroy to stop trying to eat the box.
Knowing that his attention span is that of a pea, all I had to do is breathe in and out deeply every time I set the box back up and he knocked it over.
I got all day Roy.
Happy Easter everyone! I hope your baskets are filled with lots of chocolate and sugar. I personally hope that mine is filled with booze.
And speaking of booze, Barks n’ Brews will continue shortly. I’m still trying to get my smell and taste buds back after having the flu. I’ve been unable to consume alcohol beverages for over 3 weeks. The most exciting part of my days has been putting a nose strip on when I go to bed, hence the fact that I’m hoping the Easter bunny leaves some booze in my basket.
