Nisha gave me this recipe, it’s  really popular with her sorority sisters, rich, creamy and easy to make.  I thought some of you might enjoy it, too.  ~ jan

6 oz. chocolate bunny
18 large marshmallows halved or 180 mini marshmallows
1/4 cup milk
16 oz. unsweetened whipping cream
1 prepared graham pie shell
small piece of bunny to shave on top of pie and/or mini chocolate bunnies for the top

Melt bunny in milk, then stir in marshmallows stirring constantly until they melt.  Cool completely, whip cream until stiff, fold into cooled chocolate mixture, pour into crust and chill until firm - 2-3 hours.  Decorate with shaved chocolate and bunnies.
