Chocolate Bunnies.

These little bunnies take about 2 hours to make, between tempering, coloring, filling, and cooling. And then there are the 3- chocolate bunnies. They take the same time. I made 7 adult 3-D filled bunnies, and one white-chocolate bunny for the adults. I made 4 filled 3-D bunnies, one for each grandchild as well. Now I'm making the bunnies on the stand for an Easter display at a local restaurant.

I love them, Chief.

Can I ask you, do you temper by hand or do you have a tempering pot?

I have been doing it by hand but it doesn't always work out great. There is a company in Canada that has two models, a manual for $400 and an auto/manual for $800 and they only do 1.5 pounds of chocolate at a time. You can do up to 2 pounds if you buy and extra attachment.

I have to do peppermint patties and strawberries for a wedding next month and would really like get it right, but don't want to spend the money if it isn't worth it. I would use it a lot I am sure, but if you have any tricks up your sleeve I would be happy to hear them.

And if you don't want this thread hijacked, I will be happy to make a tempering thread.!

Yep, I agree with you on the cutest bunnies. And, the chocolate ones are tempered by hand.
