    Add the rabbit and marinate in the refrigerator for 48 hours. Drain.
    Put the bacon in a Dutch oven and cook until lightly browned. Add the
   sliced onions and cook until golden.
    Blend in flour and add rabbit.  Cook 10 minutes turning the pieces several
   times.  Add the wine, bring to a boil, and stir in the chocolate. Cover and
   cook over low heat 1-1/2 hours or until tender; add salt and pepper to
   taste after 1 hour.  While the rabbit is cooking, saute the white onions in
   the remaining oil until golden. Arrange the rabbit on a hot platter with
   the sauteed onions and bread around it.  Serve with noodles.
