1

Prepare HERSHEY’S “PERFECTLY CHOCOLATE” Chocolate Cake following directions for using two 9-inch round baking pans. Remove cakes from pans. Reserve one layer for later use.

2

Level cake layer by sliding a wet knife across the top. Cut the cake into 2 equal halves.

3

Attach the two cake halves together using frosting, with the rounded sides facing up and the cut edges on bottom, to create the bunny’s body. Frost the bottom of the bunny’s body and adhere it to a serving plate.

4

Cut a small notch through the two pieces of cake about 1/3 of the way up one edge of body to form the shape of the bunny’s head. Use icing to attach the cut piece to the back of the cake to create the bunny’s tail.

5

Frost the bunny, then cover with sweetened coconut flakes. Use your fingers to gently press the coconut into the frosting.

6

Add peanut butter egg "ears", jelly bean "eyes" and "nose" and licorice "whiskers".
