Prepare Chocolate Bunnies:
Melt cocoa lite in a microwave-safe container at 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval.
Pour the melted candy coating into a squeeze bottle.
Fill all the cavities in the bunny mold.
Tap the mold on the work surface to settle the chocolate and release air bubbles.
Freeze for 10 minutes.
When the mold is cloudy, invert it onto parchment paper and gently tap to release the chocolate bunnies.
With green buttercream and a piping tip #2A, pipe a flat swirl onto the cupcake.
Turn the cupcake upside down and press it into the green candy shred, creating the appearance of grass.
Assemble the Easter Scene:
Pile up jelly bean Easter eggs on one side of the cupcake, creating a colorful nest of eggs.
Place one of the chocolate bunnies next to the eggs, ensuring it stands upright.
Add basket handles to the cupcake using a licorice twist. Gently press the ends of the licorice into the cupcake on opposite sides, creating a charming edible basket handle.
Serve and Enjoy:
Once assembled, your Easter Bunny Basket Cupcake is ready to be served and enjoyed. The combination of chocolate bunnies, vibrant grass, jelly bean eggs, and a licorice handle creates a delightful and festive treat that captures the spirit of Easter.
