strawberry easter bunnies

hey i got a healthy easter snack for you!

ok well, not really,
but it does involve fruit.
they're just basically chocolate covered strawberries.

but here are the deets anyway.

the straws:
the dipping process. 
make sure your strawberries are thoroughly DRY first.
don't dip the strawberry in the chocolate bark-
the juice from the top will mess up the chocolate consistency thus the reason for the "plopping".

 and do not cover the tops yet-
they need to dry out or the chocolate won't stick.
ok now you can cover the top.
be patient with this part-the top may still be a little wet-
i added the bark on thick and stuck it in the freezer to dry quickly.

time to add the ears (from jo ann's).
and now the eyes.
grab that food marker.
better huh?

and it's also better that these look like cake pops but they aren't at all and they are also healthier for you...well, as far as sweet treats go i guess...or not.

anyway, i thought i'd give you an easier easter treat now that it's getting closer and closer to bunny day and my marionettes probably threw some people over the edge.
i'm still hopping down the bunny trail!
one more bunny treat to go...
