Fill the small bunny cavities with melted buttons. Tap the mould on the bench to remove any air bubbles. While the chocolate is still wet lay a lollipop stick on the back of each bunny. Rotate the stick until it is covered in chocolate. Place the mould into the fridge until fully set - approximately 20 minutes.
