Home May’d + Mint Bunny Morsels
April 22, 2011
Greetings on this Good Friday friends, we’re gearing up for the Easter weekend festivities, and off to my sister’s house for dinner on Sunday. My sis lives over an hour away so we don’t get a chance to see each other as often as we should or could.
There are many things my younger sister and I have in common, but the one thing we share is a love of vintage finds and chocolate mint. In fact, a perfect afternoon for me would be sitting in her backyard, eating chocolate mints, and pouring over shelter magazines together. That or going thrifting arm in arm.
I was wandering the aisles of one of my favorite antique stores a few weeks ago and came across these sweet vintage bunny aluminum tins, so I thought I’d give them to my sis, but I couldn’t help making some chocolate mint Easter bunnies to go along with them !!
These were easy peasy. I bought some dark chocolate and chocolate mint chips to melt.
I melted the mint chips on low in the micro for 90 seconds, then spooned it into the tins.
Once they were cool, I nudged the little sweeties out with a small pick, then trimmed any excess mint chocolate very carefully.
I melted the dark chocolate and poured it over the top, then allowed that to cool too. They’re not absolutely perfect but I’m sure these homemade yummies will be quickly nibbled up with cake and coffee on Easter Sunday.
And I finally got around to growing that wheatgrass centerpiece too! I’m thinking that will be a new spring tradition.

Wishing you all a lovely Easter weekend! I’ll be back late tomorrow with another BOTB and Monday is another round of the Fair Weather Forum Link Parties, this time we’re talking about all things paint!
I’m working on a little makeover of my own this weekend that I hope to have finished for you by then. And I knoooooow you’ve got a fabulous paint project you could link up too, so I’ll see you all there on Monday!!
Peace be with you. Over and out!
