Planning the food for this Bunny birthday party must have been my favorite part. Between carrots, and bunny shaped everything I had so much fun! Last week I posted about the birthday décor. This week be prepared for a massive bunny menu! Here’s what we had:
A bowl full of marshmallows
Marshmallows cut in half and dipped in crystalized sugar. If I did it again, I would use pink sugar instead of red. I think the bunny ears ended up looking like they were bleeding.
Bunny Animal Crackers
I managed to find a bunch of Annie’s Organic Bunny Graham Friends and those turned out to be a big hit!
Almond Bark dipped carrots dyed orange
I made up a recipe for my own crackers, because I had nothing gluten free in stock. I honestly can’t share the recipe, because I made it up as I went, and didn’t save the portion sizes. I started with a recipe for Gluten Free knock-off Wheat Thins. But it morphed away from that when I discovered I had no honey. The crackers were pretty crumbly, but I topped them with cream cheese (which helped to hold them together) and then sprinkled shredded carrots on top of the cream cheese, and added a sprig of broccoli at the top of each to make it look like a carrot.
Bunny Shaped Sweet Tarts
I bought several bags of these. Then I sacrificed and ate all the chicks, and ducks so we’d only have bunnies left.
Because what else would little bunnies eat?!
Chocolate Sea Salt Carmel Bunnies
The same bargain store I found some of my décor at had a nice supply of Giradelli Chocolate Sea Salt Carmel Easter Bunnies on sale after Easter. Who am I to pass up such a delicious tie-in to my daughter’s birthday. I bought a couple bags and filled a bowl with these cute treats.
Gluten-Free Powdered Donut Bunnies
I had bought a bunch of little bunny feet. But, myself, Tiger, and two of my girl’s Uncles are all Gluten Intolerant. That called for creativity. Thankfully, I own a little donut baker. It works a lot like a Belgian Waffle Maker. So, the morning of the party I baked up a bunch of little donuts, slathered them in powdered sugar, attached little marshmallow donut ears, and used frosting to attach the cute little bunny feet. I think these were my girl’s favorite treat of the whole party.
