Chocolate Bunny Bread (bread machine)
2 1/4 cups bread flour
2/3 cup warm milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp butter/margarine
1 tbsp Fleischmann's Bread Machine Yeast
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk chocolate or peanut butter chips
Put everything except chocolate or peanut butter chips into bread
maker in the order specified by your bread machine manufacturer.
Process on dough/manual cycle.
Remove dough to flowered surface. If necessary, knead in extra flour
to make it easy to handle. Divide dough in half. Knead the chocolate
or peanut butter chips into one half of the dough, form into ball.
Place on greased large baking sheet; flatten to 5-inch round.
For the head, form 1/3 of the remaining dough into ball; place above
body. Flatten slightly; attach to body by pinching together.
For the nose, pinch off 1/2-inch ball of dough; place on head.
For the arms and ears, divide remaining dough into four pieces; roll
each to 5-inch rope. Arrange two ropes across body for arms; tucking
ends under body. Shape remaining ropes into ears; arrange above
head; tucking ends under head.
Cover; let rise in warm place 30 to 45 minutes or until doubled.
Bake at 350F for 35 to 40 minutes or until done, tenting with foil
after 15 min. to prevent overbrowning. Remove from pan; cool on wire
rack, decorate as desired (eyes and buttons: chocolate chips;
whiskers, eyelashes, and other: piped decorator's frosting).
