Can you believe it’s almost Easter? It really snuck up on me this year. While I don’t have my Easter dinner menu planned, I do have some table ideas and a chocolate bunny place card is going to take center stage at each place setting! They’re so cute and fun … and delicious, too! Don’t be surprised if those ears get nibbled on throughout dinner!
To make these simple place cards, you’ll need a chocolate bunny for each person and cute scrapbook paper that matches your dishes or tableware. You can use a large or a small bunny … either one looks really sweet sitting on a plate.
Draw a tie shape on a scrap piece of paper and use it to cut a necktie for each chocolate bunny. Be sure the size fits your bunny but don’t worry about perfect proportions … a too-big or too-small tie is super cute!
Cut out the ties by holding the template over the paper and trimming around the edge.
Before you attach the ties, you may need to make a few adjustments to the bunny. In order to make the bunnies stand up on the plates, you may need to use a sharp knife to scrape away some of the chocolate until the bottom is flat.
Write names on the ties and then attach the ties to the bunnies.
Use a match to very slightly and quickly melt a teeny tiny bit of chocolate on the bunny’s neck and press the tie into the spot.
The chocolate will quickly cool and the tie will be stuck in place.
Isn’t that a fun way to mark places at the Easter table?
