Chocolate Bunnies and Pansies Basket

Introduction

When you're in the room with this extravagant brown basket, every fragrant breath is like a moment in a chocolate shop. Set out at an Easter party, it would make a wonderful centerpiece -- then dessert. And what a gift for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Coat a plain basket with chocolate-brown paint to make the color richer.

  2. Step 2

    Fill it with shredded kraft paper and dark chocolates in the shapes of eggs, bunnies, and hens.Tip: We also put foil-covered eggs in the big bunny's basket by attaching them with dots of royal icing.

  3. Step 3

    Fresh flowers, such as this pansy nosegay, should be tucked in just before the basket is given or displayed.

    This centerpiece is gorgeous - especially the sweet bunny being carried in it's mama basket. Did the MS group create the large bunny or did you get it from a chocolate shop? Would love to know where!

    I can't think of a more beautiful centerpiece for Easter morning.
