·        Make the bunny: Now, using plastic wrap or gloves, form the cheese ball mixture into a bunny butt shape. Make one large ball, two medium, and one small ball. Use two medium-sized balls for the feet and the small ball for the tail. For added decoration, roll them in coconut or confectioners' sugar, placing them on a large serving plate.

·        Cover with cheese: Next, cover the bunny butt with the remaining shredded cheese.

·        Garnish and serve: Last, top with parsley to make it look like grass, and serve with veggies, crackers, or pretzels.

Recipe variations

·        Coconut flakes: Instead of shredded cheese, you can use shredded coconut or shaved white chocolate for a white bunny butt. Use fresh fruit like apple slices and strawberries for dipping.

·        Dessert cheese ball: In fact, for a dessert cheese ball, you could use funfetti cake mix blended with powdered sugar and vanilla. Then, coat it with coconut flakes, and pink M&M's for decorating the paws. You could also use pink sugar. Serve with golden Oreos, graham crackers, and vanilla wafers for dipping.

·        Sweet cake cheese ball: Instead of funfetti cake mix, you can use any flavor of cake mix with rainbow sprinkles. Top with coconut or powdered sugar for the bunny's tail. Use graham crackers and vanilla wafers for dipping.

·        Chocolate lovers: Chocolate lovers will love some cocoa powder mixed into your cheeseball with white chocolate chips and topped with shaved white chocolate.

·        Less saturated fat: If you are worried about saturated fat, use reduced-fat cream cheese. It has no trans-fat but will still have polyunsaturated fat and monounsaturated fat too.

·        Jumbo marshmallow: Instead of cheese, use jumbo marshmallows for the bunny tail and feet. Cut it in half to make two bunny's paws and use a whole marshmallow for the adorable bunny tail. Coat them in powdered sugar or shredded coconut for decoration.

Do I have to heat-treat raw cake mix?

Yes, since you are not baking it, you should heat your cake mix before using it because of the raw flour. Just preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spread it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, stirring once or twice while baking. Sift the mix and let it cool before using it. You can also use a microwave but check it every 30 seconds. The temperature should be 160 degrees F when ready.

Who invented the cheese ball?

The first cheese ball was made by Elisha Brown, Jr. in 1801. He made a huge ball of cheese on his farm and gave it to President Thomas Jefferson. It weighed over 1,230 pounds. That is a lot of cheese! Others say it was made by John Leland in Massachusetts. Then, in 1835, a dairy farmer named Colonel Thomas Meacham in Sandy Creek, New York, made an even larger cheese ball weighing almost 1,400 pounds.

Why won't my bunny butt cheese ball stay together?

This is a common issue. Sometimes it is because the cheese ball did not chill long enough. It should chill for at least 30 minutes but several hours or overnight would be even better. It could also be that there are too many ingredients added to your cheese. If it is too wet, the cheese ball will not stay together. Add some breadcrumbs or flour.

How to store leftovers:

·        Store: You can store your leftover cheese ball in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 to 10 days.

·        Freeze: To freeze, wrap your cheese ball in plastic wrap and store it in a freezer-safe container where it will stay good for several months.

·        Thaw: Make sure you thaw your frozen cheese ball in the fridge overnight.

Recipe tips:

·        To make your Easter bunny butt, first, shape your cream cheese mixture into a large ball for the bunny butt, two medium size balls for the bunny paws, and a small ball for the tail.

·        Double or triple the packages cream cheese if you want to make several cheese balls.

·        Add some butter extract to your bunny butt cheese ball for a delicious buttery flavor.
