Reviews forEaster Bunny Cheese Spread
"The presentation was excellent. I used carrot greens as the base and put cherry red tomatoes in the greens to represent Easter eggs. It definitely needs the 8 hours of refrigeration to bring out the flavor."
"There aren't enough stars to rate this properly. I love to make this cheese spread for any occasion! I just change the shape of the "ball" and type of crackers (or veggies)"
"So very cute and extremely easy. Might go a little heavier on the seasonings.......very mild.......but the kids will love it!"
