I am always looking for ways to dress up tried and true favorites that do not require a lot of skill, time or money, so I was eager to try this Bunny Bread Bowl. It did not disappoint! It was quick and did not require any fancy ingredients or culinary skills. I used it as an early Easter theme, but it would also be great or any bunny themed birthday party or baby shower.
Bunny Bread Bowl Components
I call them components because you aren’t actually making anything, just assembling.
- 2 bread rounds (1 slightly smaller than the other)
- 1 baguette
- black olives for eyes
- carrot for nose
- green onions for whiskers
Bunny Bread Bowl Instructions
- Simply slice the top off of the larger bread round. (You could use this piece for the head if you would like.) Remove and cube enough bread to make room for your dip.
- Place bread body on a tray, followed by the bread head.
- Cut two equal lengths of the baguette for the ears. Slice any remaining baguette for use as a dipper.
- Add olives for eyes, a carrot nose, and sliced green onion whiskers. I left one end of each set of whiskers uncut and placed them under the carrot nose before securing with a toothpick.
- Fill the body with your favorite dip. I went old school here and used the classic Knorr’s Spinach Dip, but you could use any dip at all.
- Add dippers around your bunny. I added carrots, Triscuits, Pita Chips and slices from the baguette ears.
That’s it. It only took a few minutes and I thought it turned out super cute. I was serving mainly to adults, but I think kids would get a kick out of it. Now I am curious to see what other bread animals I could turn into dip containers.
This would make a great addition to an Easter appetizer table or for brunch. In case you still need some Easter inspiration, check out our celebration guide here.
