Tropical Chocolate Hula Bunny

My inspiration came from a pinned image on Pinterest of a Tiki themed Easter bunny and basket, which you can see here–>>> PIN INSPIRATION. I really loved the bunny, but the decorations weren’t all edible, so I decided to make a fully edible chocolate bunny using various candies.  

Supplies:

  • chocolate melts
  • toothpick
  • Airhead Xtremes colored strips
  • Mini flower icing decorations
  • kitchen scissors

How to:

The length of the hula skirt and the number of pieces cut will depend on the shape and size of the chocolate bunny used. I chose a large standing bunny, as I plan on using it as a cake topper, but you could also use a flat bunny too. 

Chocolate hula bunny skirt pieces

  • Lay the chocolate bunny on part of the chocolate bunny box or parchment paper. This will help you move the bunny around without touching it too much (to prevent fingerprints). If you must touch the bunny, try to hold it where the candy skirt will cover your fingerprints.
  • Measure how long the Airhead Xtremes need to be for the skirt and cut to length. Then, cut between each color stripe, making sure not to cut all the way through. Make enough pieces to go around the entire bunny. Set aside. 

Note: I tried using green fruit roll-ups, but it was too sticky to cut and extremely difficult to work with. I also tried using edible Easter grass and that was too stiff. It’s much easier to use a thicker type of flat candy, like Airhead Xtremes.

Applying the chocolate hula bunny skirt

  • Melt 4 to 5 chocolate melts in the microwave in 15 seconds intervals. Mix between intervals until the candy melts are melted. 
  • Using a toothpick, apply a small bit of chocolate across the top of the ‘skirt’ edge and press into place. Repeat until the skirt goes all around the bunny. Let dry. 

Icing flowers haku lei

  • Add a dot of melted chocolate to the back of the icing flowers and press into place. Repeat, attaching flowers in a row along the front of the bunny ears. Let dry.

    I had fun participating in my first Pinterest Challenge with you. It motivated me to not only use one of my pins, but to blog about it. Thanks for hosting!

  5. She is the cutest hula bunny ever! What a great idea as a cake topper. Her skirt is the cutest. I can’t wait to see the finished cake.

  6. She’s lovely and I like how you made her totally edible.
    Wouldn’t it be fun to give kids a kit to decorate their own chocolate Easter bunnies?
