DIRECTIONS

  • Cut a fourth off of one loaf of dough; shape into a pear to form head.

  • Place paws on each side of body at top of body.
  • Place cheeks and nose on face. Add raisins for eyes and almond for teeth. *You can secure cheeks and nose with pieces of toothpick to hold in place. You can also use a halved white jelly bean instead of the almonds if desired. *Do not use the jelly bean though until just before serving, or it will melt a little and get grainy. (So place the teeth on just before serving.).

  • Line hole in belly with lettuce leaves, fill with dip.
  • Surround entire bunny with bread cubes, fresh veggies and crackers for dipping.
