My 2 Ingredient Easter Bunny Cheese Bread is one of the cutest culinary ideas I have ever had. I wanted to make something fun and festive for Easter, and this bread surpassed all expectations. This bread recipe is as easy as it gets: all you need is 2 ingredients and about 30 minutes. The star of the show is Castello’s new creamy Havarti which is so incredibly delicious. Serve these as an appetizer, or as the centerpiece to an Easter feast.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • neutral oil
  • 200 grams Castello’s Creamy Havarti Cheese
  • 2 packages Pillsbury Croissant (crescent) Rolls , (8 ounces or 225 grams each)
  • sesame seeds , (optional)
  • your favorite hard cheese, for presentation


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Add a touch of oil to your clean countertop so that the dough doesn’t stick.
  • Unroll the dough from the Pillsbury packs and connect all the pieces together by gently pinching all the sides to form one large rectangle.
  • Cut five lines lengthwise and six lines horizontally. You should have 30 small squares of dough. Place a small piece of creamy Havarti cheese into each square. Take each square and pinch it together so that the cheese is sealed and roll the stuffed dough into a ball.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the cheese-stuffed balls into the shape of a rabbit head. You will need 14 dough balls to make a circular face and 8 dough balls for each ear. Sprinkle some sesame seeds onto the ears for decoration, if desired.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Let cool.
  • If you'd like, using an Easter-themed cookie cutter, cut some hard cheese into shapes. Once the bread is cool, transfer it to a serving platter. Decorate the plate with the cut-out cheese. Enjoy!



This recipe can easily be made into a dessert by swapping out cheese for a dollop of Nutella or your favorite thick, sweet spread. 
Feel free to use storebought, frozen, defrosted pizza dough instead of croissant rolls.
For gluten-free bunny bread you can absolutely use gluten-free pizza dough.
For additional flavor, try brushing the uncooked, assembled bunny bread with melted butter, finely minced garlic and fresh herbs.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
