Fun Easter snack for kids: Make a veggie bunny!

Who knows? It might also pique their interest in vegetables.

Thanks to our friends at Weelicious for this fun Easter snack that doubles as a craft project (and isn’t it adorable?)

This might also encourage a picky eater to embrace vegetables because you know bunnies are great at doing that!

Here’s the recipe and the how-to, which you could adjust to your own tastes, what you have on hand, and your kids’ abilities and attention spans.

Enjoy making this fun Easter snack!

Veggie bunnies: ingredients

1 jicama, peeled and sliced into 1/2″ circles
2 tablespoons whipped light cream cheese
12 chives
2 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 Persian cucumber
8 edamame
2 breakfast radishes, tops removed and sliced lengthwise
2 red radishes, cut into coins
8 broccoli florets
8 small carrots, peeled


1. Place a jicama circle on a plate.

2. Place the whipped cream in a ziplock bag and cut a small piece off the corner to create a piping bag.

3. Slice one half of the Persian cucumber into coins and the other half slice on the bias.

4. Place 2 of the lengthwise cucumber slices at the top of the jicama to create ears. Squeeze a dollop of cream cheese onto the cucumbers and top with 2 slices of the breakfast radish.

5. Squeeze 2 small dots of cream cheese near the top of the jicama circle and press a radish circle onto each one to form eyes. Using the cream cheese as a “glue,” press a cucumber coin and edamame onto each radish eye.

6. Squeeze a small dot of cream cheese onto the center of the jicama circle and place 3 chives on top of the cream cheese, spreading them out to form whiskers. Place a cherry tomato half on top of the chives to create a nose.

7. Place 2 carrots next to the Veggie Bunny and place the broccoli florets at the top of the carrots.

8. Enjoy your fun Easter snack and/or decoration!
