For small Easter Sunday soirees this year, Martha has made a brilliant and fun twist on the tradition by transforming hollow chocolate bunnies into something completely new.

‘This is an Easter bunny with chocolate,’ Martha explained to Alicia. ‘And I want to turn it into a little special treat for the kids who still drink milk.’

To turn the rabbit – which must be one of the caves – into a drinking vessel, Martha uses mild heat and a metal straw.

‘Then take a piece of metal, heat the end … not too long,’ she instructs. ‘This will stick right into the top. And, see how it went down? Now I have a perfect hole where I can pour milk. ‘

‘Then put in a nice straw – this is a little pink straw – and you can just enjoy a milkshake,’ said Stewart. ‘And eat your rabbit too. It’s so cute! ‘

These special sippy cups are perfect for children (or adults with a sweet tooth), and since they are all individual, they can be enjoyed socially distant.

This year, Martha crossed – figuratively speaking – to find inspiration for Easter’s most beloved pièce de résistance, decorated eggs, with a technique called shibori.

‘Well, this is a Japanese technique,’ she explained, ‘and this is on hard-boiled eggs with tape or stickers. And it’s just a little unusual and easy to do. ‘

For people who go the more traditional route of dipping hard-boiled eggs in a variety of colorful dyes, the craft queen suggests using a simple household pantry ingredient to enhance vitality.

‘I put some white distilled vinegar in the water. It helps the color to be smoother on the egg, she said while demonstrating. ‘Look, you have a beautiful stripe around your egg. So easy!’

To ensure that the colored eggs and chocolate bunnies appear artificially, Martha turns to her own Martha Stewart collection (available at Macy’s). Stewart took the time to show off some of his favorite articles for DailyMailTV and provided some inspiration from the spring.

‘Look at these beautiful records,’ Martha admired. ‘I want a set of these myself, I have not yet received it. I have to remember to do that before they run out of these. We also have lovely cutlery. All this is also affordable, because that’s what we always try to do – beauty and practicality at a good price. ‘

For Martha personally, her Easter celebration this year will be small and intimate. After a year in lockdown, and working harder than ever from her stunning Bedford estate, Martha has recently spent time with her grandchildren now that she has been vaccinated.

Her granddaughter Jude, 10 years old, seems to be following in the footsteps of her mother-in-law.

‘Look at these gorgeous bracelets that Jude makes,’ Martha splashed out with homemade jewelry. ‘She sells these at a local coffee shop. She and her friend Jade. ‘

In the coming months, Martha said she looks forward to the pandemic restrictions lifted so she and her grandmothers can travel again.

‘I want to go to Antarctica with the kids,’ she revealed. ‘It will be their seventh continent that they have visited in their short lives – and to my beloved Maine I can not wait to return to Seal Harbor.

Hold the metal wire at one end and heat the other end with any flame (lighter, gas burner, match) for about 10 seconds

Lay the hot metal wire against the top of the rabbit. It should melt a hole very quickly

• Pour milk into the rabbit using a funnel

• Load a festive piece of paper in the hole

These treats can be enjoyed by children and even adults with a sweet tooth. The chocolate rabbits can be eaten after the milk has been drunk! Enjoy!
