This was by far one of the most violent taste tests we've had at Serious Eats world headquarters—we butchered off ears, cottontails, and hind legs, trying not to think too hard about former fluffy pets or Thumper. But hey, we needed to find the best of the hippity-hoppity chocolate Easter rabbits (and carving matzo wouldn't have been as fun).
We decided to go with milk chocolate (sorry dark chocolate, this isn't your day) and brands that were a few notches above the 99-cent kind at the drugstore around the corner. We chose places where we like the taste of their regular, non-lagomorpha chocolate. Note: This contains a NSFBunnyLovers photo. Check out the tasting results in our slideshow.
