Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

Since Easter is this Sunday I thought I would share my faux chocolate Easter bunnies that I bought last year at Marshalls.  It's so funny, everyone that comes over thinks they are real chocolate!  Don't you just want to bite one of their ears off? I do!

Edited to add:  If you want to make your own faux chocolate bunnies there is a video on how to make them on Martha Stewart's website.  It's a hilarious segment with Nathan Lane! Click here to watch it.

I'll have to agree, the Chocolate Bunnies do look real!
I was reading how you have been super busy, it must be something that happens in the Spring, because I'm feeling overwhelmed right now too!
Hang in their sweetie!

My Cottage Charm said...

What..??..just an ear...I want the whole bunny! :) I wish I could figure out how they made them, I would be making my own. I love the whole vignette! :)
Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend. :)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

They do look like chocolate in the pictures, so I can imagine someone wanting to eat one of them, Cindy! I wonder if they are carrying them again this year, as I have seen others in blogland and they mention Marshalls and TJ Maxx as having them. Maybe I'll check around tomorrow since I'm off from the day job for Good Friday.

Dorothy said...

Cindy,
An adorable, fun display. Happy Easter.

Meadowsweet Cottage said...

Faux chocolate bunnies would be the only kind I could resist, Cindy. Although I might find myself gnawing on a ear just to make sure they weren't edible!

Thanks for hosting Show and Tell. Some of my bunnies are making an appearance at your party :)

Thelittlebrownhouse.us said...

I so love those bunnies! Of course, I love chocolate too!
Thanks so much for being such a lovely hostess!

Necel from the Old House in Texas said...

I adore your faux chocolate bunnies but I would give $50 for a real one right now.

Have you seen the Easter cartoon that's two chocolate bunnies? One is missing his tail and is saying, "My butt hurts." The other is missing his ears and responds, "What?" LOL. It's one of my favorites.

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Those are just precious and I love how you've displayed them. The picture made me smile.

Red Door Home said...

Cindy, I love your chocolate bunnies. They certainly do look real! I'm participating for the first time. I had wanted to link something for Easter but my plans were interrupted with a family emergency. So I linked my Alphabe-Thursday post on knitting. I hope this qualifies. I'm glad to have found your meme and look forward to participating each week. Love this idea! Thanks for hosting.

Dearest Cindy,

I always so look forward to visiting your blog, especially Friday, your romantic visions of loveliness for 'Show And Tell Friday' are a 'Spring tonic' for all of our romantic souls my dear lady!

My, those cute little 'yummy looking', faux chocolate bunnies are adorable! (I
must check out that link that you suggested Cindy)!

I hope you enjoy my post this week,it took hours in the making, yet I find beauty in it's many forms and creating things so therapuetic!

(I am missing my precious dearly departed father and mother-in-law and two pets very much, especially this Easter season, so it helps to comfort and 'heal my soul' dear lady, literally!., Especially when you invite us to partake in such lovliness!

Thank you so much! I say this sincerely and from my heart Cindy!!

Although lovliness and blog parties are obviously meant to be by there very nature, as lighthearted and fun as they truly are; I guess any of us may perhaps not really ever fully know the joyful and fullfilling 'ripple of effect' of fun, and 'restorative gladness' that can and often does 'trickle down', so to speak, from such a beautiful blogging event like yours dear Cindy!..,

Have a marvelous and blessed Easter sweet lady!

Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed pen

GWENDOLYN said...

They do look real! If they were , they wouldn't make it a day to a week here in this house. Lovely post as always. I was looking in some old mags last night and saw your blog posted in "romantic home" of course I have read it all before, but it was nice to come upon again.
Easter Blessings!
Gwen

Gray said...

Liz said...

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

The rabbits are so cute. One of the decorating stores in town here have faux bunnies with the pastel foil on them and they're so pretty but $$$, have you seen that type at Marshall's? Hoping maybe they'll carry them there. Have a great Easter, Cindy!

Tracey McBride ~ Frugal Luxuries™ said...

Gorgeous post! It's always, always a treat to visit you Cindy!
Warmly,
