When my children were little they called white bread “bunny bread”. 
This bunny bread is hippity-hoppity easy and would be a delightful surprise with your Easter meal!

I was awe struck by the creativity of this fun bunny shaped bread when I saw them HERE  and   HERE. But I was not interested in making a yeast bread from scratch… or a sweet bread.
So, I put a StoneGable spin on the recipe and decided to see how refrigerator bread sticks would work… and they did!!!! Savory with a hint of butter and herbs, this bunny bread is so yummy… and cute! 
You don’t have to hop down bunny trails to make this fluffy-tail bread!  Just get your paws on some refrigerator bread dough and begin!

StoneGable Bunny Bread
1 container refrigerator breadsticks
2-4 TBS butter, melted
herbs, chopped finely
sea salt
Preheat oven according to package.
Sprinkle flour on a work surface. 
Please indulge me… I love rice china. This is the measuring cup in my big jar of flour. See how the light shines through it? Pretty!
Unroll bread sticks on to the floured work surface. Separate into individual pieces.
I pinched the ends of each breadstick together slightly to look like bunny ears. Twist until you get the breadsticks configured like the photograph at the top.
Make bunny tails by breaking off a piece of dough from 1 breadstick. Roll it into a ball and place it in the center of the hole in the body.
Put the bunnies on a large parchment lined baking sheet and brush them with butter.
Bake according to package directions or until golden.  Remove from oven, brush with butter and sprinkle with finely chopped herbs and sea salt.
Soooo cute… ENJOY!

    Cute indeed! I love this idea and the fact that I don’t have to worry about making the yeast bread when there will be so many other dishes to make. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Talk about easy! I have pinned several bunny breads and am definitely going to be trying some out this week (won’t bode well for low carb – bread is definitely my weakness) and these would be really easy and fun. The kiddies could even have a hand in making these cute bunnies. I love how it encourages them to eat things when they have had a hand in it.

    Oh How Cute, Yvonne. Thanks! I love the name of it and it looks easy. I’ll bet my grands would LOVE this. I will tell you that when SweetCheeks handles things we always give her her OWN PAN…of cookies or whatever it is. Noone wants to eat something she has “worked over”!;>) xo Diana

    The bunny bread is adorable.

    Hope I remember to make it on Easter Sunday,

    Usually in the rush to get dinner on the table something
    is always forgotten.

    Genius idea, Yvonne. I am going to try this. Pinned it to my “bread” board on Pinterest. I do make a yeast Easter bread that is delicious but labor intensive. Not sure I will be making it this year. xo

    Cute is right and something even I could do. I can’t make bread for the life of me, no matter how many times I try. So opening a pack of bread sticks would work. Thanks for the tutorial. Looks soooooooo cute and good. Hugs, marty

    Yvonne, this is the perfect bread for Easter. I adore it. Your photos are so pretty, they just draw me in. I love the details in a cook’s kitchen: the flour swirls on your wooden cutting board, the delicate rice bowl instead of a metal measuring cup, the pansy garnish. Hope you have a sunny weekend. XX00

    Hi Yvonne – I am so excited to make this bunny bread for Easter this year. My 20-month old granddaughter, Brooke, will just go crazy over it!! Thanks for such a wonderful and fun idea as usual!! Hugs, Dorinda

    I will have to try this for my Easter day lunch. It look so pretty with the herbs sprinkled all over. I also this the rice bowl looks so good on the flour, with the light. A fabulous photograph. I have some of these bows I purchase years ago and they are going to get pulled out of storage now. Thanks for the recipe and inspiration.
    Have a great weekend Yvonne.

    These are so great!
    Love monkey bread too.

    Hope you can dig out some of your
    tartan skirt photos from when you
    were little to share on Sunday at
    the Tartan Parade, Yvonne. THAT would
    be such an awesome post!

    These are just too cute. After clicking on your link mulitple times this past week, I just knew I was making them for Easter dinner. And they came out just as cute as yours. Oh, I used parmesan cheese rather than herbs. Easy peasy and too darn cute.
