This fun Easter biscuit recipe is simple enough that you can make up a batch with the kids or grandkids. Since they take no time at all since they’re made with refrigerated biscuit dough from the store, you can make some up after the Easter egg hunt.
Easter Bunny Biscuits makes the perfect kid Easter breakfast
Simple ingredients make these fun and easy Easter Bunny Biscuits the perfect Easter morning breakfast or anytime treat. Get the kids in on the fun, letting them help make the bunny ears and whiskers!
These biscuit bunnies make a great snack all year long but especially this time of year for Easter breakfast. I like to use raisins, maraschino cherries, and slivered almonds, but get creative and use other healthy ingredients for the whiskers, eyes and mouth.
Let each child create their own bunny biscuit. They can even use cheese and veggies like mushrooms and small broccoli florets for a savory snack.
This Mama’s tips for making Easter bunny biscuits
Use kitchen scissors to easily cut biscuit dough.
Don’t have raisins for this Easter biscuit recipe? You can use dried cranberries, dried cherries, or diced pieces of dried fruit. You could also use golden raisins!
Don't like maraschino cherries? Use fresh cherry or grape halves. Or a piece of strawberry would work, too!
Can’t use almonds due to nut allergies? Slice pieces of fruit leather or carrots into slivers instead.
