Grandma's Easter Egg Recipe

I mentioned in an earlier post, how much I loved my Grandma's homemade solid Easter bunny each year. Every Easter, wrapped in alfoil, all the kids got their very own massive solid bunny. It would take ages to eat. Sadly Grandma passed away last year and I really wanted to make her recipe this Easter for my little girl to try. I managed to track the recipe down and made some bunnies and eggs. Beware, these are not the healthiest, but what chocolate is? So here are the ingredients and instructions. I usually double this recipe.

4 ounces copha (that is 1/2 a standard block)
1 cup of icing mixture
1 cup of powdered milk
3 desertspoons of cocoa
1 teaspoon of vanilla

In a medium to large saucepan, melt copha over low heat until melted and warm but not hot. Take off the heat. Stir in sifted icing mixture and powdered milk. Add the cocoa (I sift it in too) and the vanilla. Put mixture into molds and set in the fridge. Too easy.
