Bunny’s Cheeseball: An Easter Delight

As the Easter season blossoms with its vibrant traditions and joyous gatherings, our tables become a canvas for creativity and celebration. This Easter, enchant your guests with a whimsical and savory masterpiece that's as delightful to behold as it is to devour - Bunny’s Cheeseball. Inspired by the Easter Bunny's playful spirit, this cheeseball is ingeniously shaped like a carrot, making it a perfect thematic centerpiece for your Easter spread. Blending the bold flavors of chili, cheese, and bacon with the creaminess of cream cheese, and adorned with a "carrot top" of fresh parsley, this appetizer is not just a treat for the taste buds but also a feast for the eyes. Let's hop into the kitchen and create an Easter recipe that will be remembered long after the last egg has been found.


  • 16 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • Divine Dips Chili Cheese & Bacon mix (amount as desired)
  • Finely shredded cheddar cheese (for coating)
  • Fresh parsley (for carrot stem)
  • Crackers (for serving)


  1. Combine the Flavors: In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine 16 oz of room temperature cream cheese with the Divine Dips Chili Cheese & Bacon mix until the mixture is smooth and well blended.
  2. Shape the Cheeseball: Lay out a sheet of plastic wrap on your countertop. Place the cream cheese mixture onto the center of the plastic wrap. Using your hands, gently shape the mixture into the form of a carrot. Be creative and try to mimic the elongated and slightly tapered shape of a real carrot.
  3. Chill to Set: Carefully cover the cheeseball with the plastic wrap, ensuring it retains its carrot shape. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or for best results, leave it overnight. This step is crucial for the cheeseball to firm up and hold its shape.
  4. Add the Finishing Touches: Just before serving, remove the cheeseball from the refrigerator and unwrap it. Place it on a serving board with the narrower end at the top, resembling a carrot. Gently press finely shredded cheddar cheese onto the entire surface of the cheeseball to give it the characteristic orange color of a carrot.
  5. Create the Carrot Stem: Use fresh parsley to fashion a carrot stem at the narrow top of the cheeseball. Insert the parsley sprigs to resemble the greenery of a carrot, completing the Easter-themed presentation.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Surround your Bunny’s Cheeseball with an assortment of crackers for dipping. Present it to your guests as a playful and delicious starter that celebrates the essence of Easter with every bite.

This Easter, let Bunny’s Cheeseball be the highlight of your festive table, embodying the joy and creativity of the season in a delectably savory form. Happy Easter, and enjoy your culinary creation!
