Easter Bunny Lunch Idea

I've been enjoying the adorable food ideas from Little Nummies, a blog that presents simple but creative recipes using stuff you'd normally have on hand (without having to run to the store for special ingredients!).

When I saw the post about Easter Bunny faces for lunch, I had to try it for my boys. Here's how ours turned out! So cute!


These are the ingredients I used:

Face - slice of brown rice bread
Ears - hard-boiled egg cut in half, yolks removed (I also dyed them with beet juice so they had a pinkish hue to them)
Eyes - cream cheese for the whites, and grain-sweetened chocolate chips for the pupils
Nose - hard-boiled egg yolk
Mouth - raw beet slice
Teeth -Tillamook pepperjack cheese
Whiskers - Tillamook cheddar cheese

We were quite taken with your bunny faces, not to mention equally impressed that you found a way to work TWO kinds of Tillamook cheese into the edible visages. In fact, we hopped to it (we know, groan) and made your entry our Post of the Day this past Saturday at www.tillamookfanclub.com.
Best,
