First, I gave you the broccoli “lollipops.” Then these other ways to fool kids into thinking they were getting candy. Now? The April Fool’s Day chocolate bunny filled with… broccoli. Mwah ha ha. Of course, for this one, they also get the chocolate bunny, so it’s kind of win win here.
Since April Fools’ Day is pretty close to Easter, I thought we could merge the two a bit. Let them think they are getting a treat a little early. Need more ideas? Here’s a roundup of April Fool’s day food tricks.
Instead of chocolate chips, here I use cocoa candy melts. I find candy melts are just easier to work with here, without the need for tempering. My chocolate bunnies are far from perfect, too, since chocolate is not my best medium, but I didn’t need perfection for the trick to work. So if you aren’t a chocolatier either, not to worry… you can get by with this shortcut.
how to make April Fools’ Day chocolate bunny (filled with veggies)
you will need:
what to do: Melt about half the bag of candy melts in the microwave according to package directions. Spoon some in the mold and use a paint brush to cover the cavity in the chocolate. Scrape along the top of the mold to remove any excess chocolate. Freeze for 5 minutes and pop the bunny out of the mold. Brush some more chocolate on any thin or missing areas of chocolate and let set. Fill with veggies and brush the edges with melted candy melts. Gently hold together, brushing more chocolate on the seam as needed. Let set and present!
