Babybel Bunnies

Babybel Bunnies are an adorable way to add cuteness to any party! These charming little bunny faces are healthy, naturally gluten-free, and easy to make. Furthermore, Babybel Bunnies certainly are a cute addition to any Easter tablescape. Wait! Don’t stop there! Because these edible bunnies are delicious and cute, they also work well as a baby shower or birthday party appetizer.

With April quickly approaching, I decided that I wanted to be creative and make something fun for Easter. I knew we had Babybel cheese hiding in our refrigerator and decided that these could be used to make a tasty appetizer. I looked around my kitchen for ways to turn these cute little round mounds of cheesy goodness into something fun.

Ingredients:

  • Babybel cheese
  • carrots
  • celery
  • mini chocolate chips
  • white chocolate chips
  • mini candy hearts.

The bunny ears were made from carrots

To make the ears, carefully cut long strips of carrots and shape them to make bunny ears. Make the ears wider at the top and more narrow at the bottom.

Since I own several fondant cutters I used a tiny heart shaped cutter to punch out thin round pieces of carrot to make the bunny noses. After the noses were cut out, I placed the leftover carrot slices in a bowl of water. (I will explain how to use this later). If you do not have a heart-shaped fondant cutter you can always use a small circle of carrot instead.

I punched a heart shape out of thinly sliced carrots to create noses.

Next, I gently pushed the carrot strips into the top and towards the back of the “head” of the cheese and gently pushed the little heart noses into the center.

Two white chocolate chips on each side of the bottom of the nose help highlight the face. Feel free to use a dot of white cake frosting to hold them in place.

I used mini chocolate chips to create eyes and white chocolate chips to create cheeks.

For the final touch, I added a little tiny, upside-down candy heart for the bunny’s mouth. I had these candies left over from Valentine’s Day and they worked perfectly for the mouth. (Remember that you can use just a dot of cake frosting to hold the mouth in place.) Finally, I cut fine, thin little strips of celery and gently inserted them near the nose to make the whiskers.

I used celery to create whiskers.

Since I wanted to highlight one of the bunnies, I placed him on top of a Chocolate Crunch Rice Cake. Next, I surrounded him with all of his little bunny friends 🙂

To ensure that my Babybel Bunnies stayed fresh, I assembled them a few hours beforehand and stored them in my refrigerator. The carrot and celery pieces were also made beforehand and kept in a glass bowl covered with cold water. Hence, the cold water helped the carrots and celery stay nice and crisp.

In addition, any leftover carrot pieces add a nice touch to a tossed salad, in soup, on a veggie tray, or children enjoy eating them plain as a snack.

Rather than only offering sweets to your guests, consider offering them a plate loaded with Babybel Bunnies! It seems like a good idea to me! 🙂 

Have fun creating your very own adorable little bunnies!
