Did you ever wonder why we celebrate Easter with a bunny and eggs? Chef Kristin Egan from the Culinary Institute of America explains.

Easter just wouldn't be the same without those chocolate bunnies, marshmallow peeps and other treats. In fact, after Halloween, the most chocolate is sold every year during the Easter holiday.

Chef Kristin Egan says the chocolate bunnies are actually an old German tradition. Much like many of the stories and traditions of Christmas, The Easter Bunny and Easter eggs also trace back to Germany.

Here is Chef Egan explaining why we eat chocolate bunnies.
