Simple Pleasure Sunday: Bunny Ears for Easter Breakfast

I bought myself a dark chocolate bunny by Lindt (you know, the one wrapped in gold foil) on a whim yesterday afternoon. My dad always mentions eating bunny ears, like they taste better than any other part or something... So, in addition to my daily shots of espresso, I enjoyed chocolate bunny ears for breakfast on this Easter Sunday morning. The quality chocolate was delicious.

In Italy, you unwrap a hollow chocolate egg instead of a bunny, often a large one with a prize inside. My roommates in Pescara taught me that you cook lamb for the meal and then you have a dove-shaped cake for dessert.

This blogger really loves that traditional cake called Colomba. Check out her post about this special confection here. I won't be enjoying either this year, even though I helped decide upon the menu. The family feast is set to start at 1. This dinner will also act as my birthday celebration with my family. 

The above photo was from Easter morning 2005 in Italy. My roommates and I both snuck into the kitchen in the middle of the night to leave Easter gifts for each other. One of my roommates loved chocolate as much as me. The three of us also traveled to Bologna and Florence over the week following the holiday.

Buona Pasqua! I hope you have a delightful Easter and a wonderful rest of the weekend.
