💖Why We Love This Easter Board

  • It’s festive board: The arrangement is made into a bunny face that is an easy way to add a festive touch to your Easter holiday gatherings.
  • Simple to make: You can easily make your own bunny board with a few simple items that can be found at any local grocery store.
  • Super versatile: This board allows you to mix and match different flavors and textures. From healthy fruits and veggies to crackers, meats and cheese, you can swap it all up to suit your preference.
  • A large wooden board: You can use a designated charcuterie board, a large cutting board or simply a large platter.
  • Medium bowl: This acts as the centerpiece of the board to hold the vegetable dip.
  • Small bowls: Not required but just in case you want to add wet ingredients, like olives or for smaller items like candies.
  • Party toothpicks: You’ll want party picks for your fruits and veggies.
  • Appetizer plates: Smaller sized plates are great for serving snacks from the board.

🛒Ingredients:

  • Buttery snack crackers
  • Fresh fruit: We used fresh strawberries and blackberries and grapes.
  • Fresh vegetables: Grape tomatoes, broccoli florets, baby carrots

👩🏼‍🍳How to Make a Bunny Grazing Board

Step 1. Start with the sour cream veggie dip (or your dip of choice) in the center as the main focal point.

Step 2. Make a salami rose and add the capicola around the edges to make a bow tie shape. Place some grapes at the top of the board.

Step 3. Add the bunny ears by layering the crackers going up to the top of the board. We added baby carrots for the middle of each bunny ear. You can also use petite whole carrots for this.

What Does Charcuterie Mean?

“Charcuterie” is a fancy French word that means “cooked meats.” Traditional charcuterie boards are served with a variety of cured meats and a variety of cheeses as well as veggies, olives or other fruits.

Now, charcuterie boards can include just about everything you can imagine. From delicious Breakfast Charcuterie Boards to a fun campfire S’more’s Board and even an adorable Unicorn Charcuterie Board, they make a great addition to just about any party or gathering.

Variation’s and Add’s

  • Dip: We used a sour cream veggie dip, but you can use any dip you prefer. A small bowl of hummus would go great with the veggies.
  • Cheese: We used cubed cheese but to add even more fun to your Easter cheese board, you can use a mini cookie cutter to make different shapes with the cheese.
  • For something sweet: Even though this is not an Easter Dessert Charcuterie Board, you can always set some small bowls of your favorite easter candy around it. Jelly beans, chocolate Easter eggs or Easter bunnies, marshmallow peeps or other colorful candies you’d typically find in Easter baskets are a great choice.
  • Other veggies: Baby carrots add visual appeal to the bunny ear, but you can also use sliced orange or red bell pepper. You can also use other veggies like cauliflower florets, cucumber slices, mini peppers or colorful radishes.
  • Adjust for other occasions: Adjust this meat, cheese and veggie tray for other occasions by leaving off the olive eyes and the green onion whiskers. The bunny face becomes a simple and tasty bowl of dip that’s great for other occasions.

How to Store Leftover Snacks from the Board

If you have leftover items on your grazing board, it’s best to disassemble the board before storing. Place the foods into separate Ziploc bags or place them in an airtight container.

This will help keep the flavors separate as well as keeping the fruits and veggies fresh and the crackers crisp. It also keeps the juice from the fruits from leaking onto the crackers.
