The Easter Bunny With Hartley's Jelly
If you are looking for a fun dessert for the children this Easter then this could be the answer. Your own jelly Easter Bunny! Big man helped me make this and was more than happy to help eat it too. As a child I loved Jelly and ice cream - infact I still do now. My Mum often made it into shapes to make it more fun, so when Hartley's Jelly sent me some Easter themed goodies I decided to have a go at making a jelly Easter bunny.
First we made up a green jelly as per the instrcutions on the packet and put this in a shallow tray to set.
We then made up a red jelly and put it into a rabbit shaped mould. These both went in the fridge over night.
Next we melted some chocolate and poured this in an egg shaped mould. The key here is to make sure that the chocolate is quite thick. Place these in the fridge to set.
The next day we rather cautiously pulled the jelly rabbit away from the sides before turning him upside down on a plate. It worked! We then added some green jelly (grass) around our rabbit which we had mashed with a fork. As this was not just any rabbit but the Easter one, we added the chocolate egg shells.
To serve I filled the chocolate shells with vanilla ice cream and topped with the jelly.
There were no bunnies hurt in this post, but the jelly one may have collapsed shortly after this photo! Have you ever made a Jelly bunny - if so what is your secret to keep it standing?
We were sent a box of Easter Goodies to make this recipe from Hartley's
