“Cheese-ter” Bunnies

Easter is just around the corner, so before your kids fill up on jellybeans and chocolate bunnies, here is an easy, fun, healthy, and delicious snack for you to make with them.  They will love making it almost as much as they love eating it!

Supplies: bunny cookie cutter
Ingredients: Tillamook Sliced Medium Cheddar Cheese, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, carrots, etc.

Supplies & Ingredients

1. Cut the carrots into matchstick shapes for the bunny whiskers.
2. Have the kids cut the bunny shapes into the cheese slices.  (Snatch up the cheese trimmings and eat these yourself when no one is looking.)
3. Assemble the bunny faces.  I just used items I found in my pantry and fridge.  I’m using dried cranberries for noses, sunflower seeds for eyes and teeth, and carrots for whiskers.  You could use grapes, apples, cheerios, celery, etc.  Get creative!
4. Take a photo of your kids saying “Cheeeese!” with their finished creations.
5. Eat and enjoy!

Love that your cute son has his little pinky up while he eats! What a proper thing to do!

What a creative idea! Is there a statute of limitations on playing with one's food? ...because I'd like to make these for MYSELF! :) (with Tillamook's Extra Sharp White Cheddar, of course)

Isn't this the cutest idea (with the cutest kids?!). I don't have very many little ones in my life right now... I wonder if my husband would make Cheese-ter Bunnies with me? :)
