This Easter bunny charcuterie board is a family-friendly spring alternative to traditional charcuterie boards. It is the perfect addition to your Easter brunch to tie your guest over until Easter dinner.
Instead of an easter bunny’s face on the charcuterie board, this Easter board is inspired by what the Easter bunny may eat and what ingredients we think of during the Easter holiday. So I am still naming it an Easter bunny charcuterie board or we can simply call it an Easter cheese board to be simplistic.

What is a Charcuterie Board?
Also known as a grazing board, or cheese board, a charcuterie board is a board (usually wooden or stone) serving prepared meats, cheeses, nuts, and fresh vegetables and fruits. Over the years charcuterie boards have evolved into beautiful serving boards that can include lots of sweet treats!

How to Make An Easter Bunny Charcuterie Board
Choose your base: You can serve your Easter board on a variety of bases. If you don’t have a round charcuterie board, you can use a cutting board, stone slab, traditional cheese platter, or any wooden board you have lying around. Ensure that the base you are using is safe to serve food on and doesn’t contain any harmful materials or chemicals.
Prepare the ingredients: Start by washing and preparing your fresh ingredients. If you want to cut your fruits and vegetables, cut them in your desired shapes and let them air dry. Cut the cheese and remove your meat from its packaging.
Build the board: Once all of the ingredients are prepared start filling the board. Start with the cheeses and spreads. From there, add your largest ingredients to the smallest, spacing them out on top of the board.
Final finishes: Once your board is almost full add your nuts, and dried fruits, and complete the rest of the tray with Easter treats you would like to add such as jelly beans, chocolate Easter bunnies, or Easter eggs. Garnish the Easter bunny charcuterie board with small flowers or edible easter grass, it is always a huge hit with the kids!
Save your leftovers: If you have leftover ingredients that don’t fit on your tray, store them in an airtight container in the fridge so you can easily refill them as the tray gets eaten. I like to stock up on lots of fruit since it is the first ingredient to go!

How to Make THIS Easter Bunny Charcuterie
Prepare the ingredients: Wash, dry all of the fruits and vegetables, and cut the broccoli. White the fresh produce is drying, cut the cheese brick cheese into half-inch cubes and put the side.
Add the first layer: Place your cheeses and spreads on the board, and drape the carrots on the side of the board, guiding the tops along the top of the board.
Add the second layer: Add the radishes on either side of the board ensuring the tops are fluffy and full. Continue by adding the meats alongside the cheese. Fold the meat it quarters or you can make simple salami roses for an added touch. Follow by positioning the cheese in a domino effect around the cheeses and meats.
Add the fruit: Starting with the strawberries, place the fruit in the empty spaces around the board, spreading the colors evenly throughout the board.
Add the fillers: Anywhere you see holes or dull spaces fill with the nest, Lindt gold bunny, and remaining Easter treats! Finish with small flowers for an added spring touch!
There are no rules when it comes to making charcuterie boards. The perfect way to make your charcuterie board is to just go for it. Let the board “build itself.” You can’t think too hard about it.
