I love Easter and Spring time. It is a time for new beginnings, warmer weather, blooming flowers and trees, and overall it just seems to be a happier time!

Normally, I think of cheese balls as a savory appetizer, but this is such a sweet Easter treat! A little goes a long way, so I recommend this for parties. If you prefer chocolate, try my Triple Chocolate Dessert Dip.

How to Make this Easter Cheese Ball Dessert

Making an Easter cheese ball dessert is simple and doesn’t require any baking. All you need to do is measure out the ingredients and mix them together!

  2. Separate into one large ball, two medium size balls, and one small ball, as shown.
  3. Roll each one in coconut flakes and pack them to make sure they are completely covered.
  4. Assemble your bunny butt, by using the two medium size balls for feet and the small ball for a tail.
  5. Gently flatten out the feet and shape them with your hands.
  6. Use your pink M&M’s to create toes, as shown.

What To Serve with Dessert Cheese Ball

Serve with graham crackers. You can dip with the crackers or spread with a knife.

Tips for Bunny Butt Cheese Ball

  • When placing the M&M’s, make sure to put the “M” side into the feet so it doesn’t show. This is a cleaner look.
  • Assemble the bunny butt right on the dish you are going to serve it on. Then you won’t have to move it.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator if not serving right away.
  • Use toothpicks to hold the tail and feet in place if they are not sticking to the body.

How to Heat Raw Flour (or Cake Mix with Raw Flour in it)

This recipe contains raw cake mix. You may be concerned about eating raw cake mix because it contains raw flour, just like raw cookie dough. To be safe, you can heat up the flour. There are two ways to heat the cake mix to a safe temperature to pasteurize the raw flour in it. This is only for no-bake sweets. If you are baking your goods, there is no need to preheat the flour.

Microwave Method – In a microwaveable bowl, microwave the cake mix until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about 55 seconds to 3 minutes depending on your microwave wattage.

Oven Method – The second way to heat flour so it’s safe to eat is in the oven. Add the cake mix to a baking pan and put in the oven at 300°F for about 10 minutes. Make sure it doesn’t burn or turn brown. Let cool before using in the recipe.

This is so stinking cute! I’m serving this today (Easter) to 5 young kids and they are pretty harsh critics. I tasted it this morning and I think it will pass the test! Thank you!

Hi! I had my daughter pick up ingredients and got butter instead of butter extract. Would it mess it up if I omitted it?

@Kim, I think it would be fine if you omitted it.

Loved this! Made it for the seniors I work with in assisted/independent living. They loved it so much, that they asked for the recipe!

How far in advance can this adorable dessert be made and refrigerated?

@SSC, since the only refrigerated ingredient is cream cheese, this dessert will actually last in the fridge a week, maybe longer. However, I would wait to add the coconut "fur" until you are ready to serve.

What flavor does the butter extract give and are there any other substitutions I could use?

@Emily Enchanted,

Thank you for your input! I think I'll just stick to the recipe as is :)

@Dom., well it gives the flavor of butter without adding butter because this is a no bake recipe. I don't know of any substitute but you could just try omitting it.
