Storing a Chocolate Easter Bunny
According to the Hershey Company, most chocolate has a shelf life of about one year. If you and your family have the ability to resist devouring your chocolate bunny on Easter Sunday, store it in a cool place wrapped in plastic. You may keep chocolate in the refrigerator if you plan to eat it over many weeks, although the chocolate may sweat when brought to room temperature.
