Chocolate Bunny Melt Down

This is it!  I'm staring at 3 huge chocolate bunnies leftover from Easter.  I'm trying to resist. Resist. Resist.  Resist.  They are calling to me in that chocolate bunny way.  It's mid morning, and my guard is down.

I have got to stop.  I vowed after Halloween, that as soon as the Halloween candy was gone, I was going to be on the candy wagon.  

Then, the Halloween candy wagon plowed right into the Christmas candy wagon, creating havoc as it rolled into Valentine's Day.  

Now, Easter is staring me right in the eye with 6 little delicious, chocolate eyes of its own.

Aren't the children supposed to wolf these bunnies down?  If one little playground-tainted hand unwrapped one and a sniffly mouth bit off a set of ears, I'd be able to throw it away.  

I'm not desperate enough to nibble on germ infested, decapitated bunnies.  To resist or cave?   I think you know where this is going.

Good luck to you- they're so adorable too! I had DH hide ours away- so I wouldn't know where to find it & be tempted!

Cave! After all, life is short and you only live once!

They look a little possessed and evil. Throw them away immediately!

lol....put them in the freezer, that is what I do with ours...outta sight outta mind....then after a few weeks when we all have successfully forgotten I pitch 'em. Sorry bunnies.

I thought the meltdown referred to the heat wave we are currently experiencing. I see 2 choices: Eat those little darlings, or stick them in a sunny window and let the sun take care of your cravings.

@Janice: Thanks, I'm going to need it. They are still here, I'm thinking about melting them into chocolate fondue and sharing the love and putting them out of their(my) misery.

@Veronica Lee: You are so right. That's how I justify dessert every time :)

@Under the Influence: They are evil, I think that just makes them look more tempting!

@Stacie's Madness: I didn't show you my freezer shot of all of the mini chocolate eggs that are in there right now. That's a smaller problem for later .. and that's how the candy eventually does me in. I love it too much to actually part with it. Sigh.

@Lynda: Thus, the fondue idea! If I were to sit down and eat them all in one sitting, that might cure me of my chocolate habit once and for all!

Blasted bunnies!!! I have one taunting me too and why is he even still here? If he doesn't bounce out of here soon, I won't be able to button my jeans heh...

I don't know what it is, but chocolate is so hard for me to resist! And my daughter is the opposite, I put a dessert in her lunch and it comes home for 3 days in a row, before I break down & eat it....

So Cute! Looking forward to reading more!

I'm signing up to follow you from the MBC Under 100 Club!

Hope you resisited the bunnies!!! I am the same way... do not let chocolate be within reaching distance!!! You can do it Deb!

@DawnS: Aren't our children supposed to eat these things? I'm writing the Easter Bunny next year and asking him not to bring so much chocolate :)

@JulieChats: Have we raised children who are dessert resistant? My kids are the same. They don't like particular breakfast cereals because they are "too sweet." When I was a kid, I thought that was the whole idea!

@Terri: Thanks for you vote of confidence, and welcome back! Something about that chocolate, isn't there? What fun would life be without it?
