Who likes Chocolate? Me ... Me ! No little boy or girl can resist chocolate especially at Easter. I think it’s one of the best things ever, don’t you? The chocolate bunny was my favorite and I saved it for last. Here’s my version in cookie form. It’s a perfect addition to the kids’ Easter baskets along with their chocolate eggs and jelly beans. I hope the Easter bunny brings you all sweet things!
