Easter Bunny Cheese Spread

 Easter Bunny Cheese Spread
FOR an Easter party at our church, I created this fun rabbit centerpiece from a cheese ball recipe. My children enjoyed decorating the bunny. We used carrots for his ears and mini jelly beans for the eyes, nose and buttons. The cheesy spread has great flavor and is perfect for serving with crackers or veggies. My aunt, Clarice Paulson, who always serves this recipe on holidays, shared it with me.&
