 I have an affinity for chocolate Easter bunnies, or what you may call chocolate flavored paraffin. I think it developed from eating those very waxy chocolate bars that were in C rations . You would be amazed at how good they can taste when you have nothing else. My wife knows about my little affection but also knows I'm diabetic so if she gets any , it is small. Yesterday she came home with one from a clearance rack at Wally World. The little guy is in a race car and is called , Pit Stop Pete. How fitting is that ? Oh, but it gets better , the rear of his car is smashed. Could there be a more fitting bunny for a crohnie than a,  Pit Stop Pete  with a defective rear end ? I think not..

That's perfect.

If only I'd know how much you like them. I can't tell you how many years we had Easter Bunny cookies because my girls would nibble the ears then not want to "ruin" the rest of the bunny. Some time mid May, while they were in school, I would chop those bunnies up and make chocolate chunk cookies. They would get home from school and be oh so happy with the cookies and never miss the Easter Bunnies. It took them years to figure this out. smilewinkgrin

Randy, you are going to get a reputation. You are starting to sound a bit gourmet. That is suspiciously like fondue! Even if the ingredients aren't typical.

Yep, Randy, I have made a similar concoction. We ate whatever we could . Also had snake on crackers but I much prefer the chocolate , the round ones with crunchy stuff in it. We had a dude in basic place a can of beans on an immersion heater without punching a hole in it . Guess you know we were all wearing beans after the explosion . I always wondered if they changed that guys MOS to demolition.
