Easter dinner is just a little more fun if you serve these cute little Easter Bunny Rolls. They are not just adorable, they’re delicious too!

How to make Easter Bunny Rolls for your Easter dinner or brunch.

Since Easter is just around the corner, I thought I should start sharing some of my favorite Easter recipes with you. I made these Easter Bunny rolls last year and thought they were so cute. My boys aren’t really into cute, but they did think it was hilarious that we were eating “bunny bums”. I’m sure if you have girls at your house, these will be much more appreciated than they were here. 🙂

Feel free to use any dough recipe that you like. You could even use frozen dough, or the canned variety. It’s the shape that makes them fun!

How to Make Easter Bunny Rolls

Ingredients:

  • cup sugar
  • instant yeast
  • hot water
  • milk
  • butter
  • oil
  • eggs
  • salt
  • flour

In large bowl (I used my Bosch), combine sugar, yeast, and water. Add milk, melted butter, oil, eggs, salt, and 2 cups of the flour. Beat till smooth.  Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 4-5 minutes with the Bosch.

To form bunnies:

1-Break off a piece of dough and roll it into a rope on an oiled counter:

2-Bring the ends up and cross them over each other, forming a loop at the bottom.

3-I like to place them on cookie sheets at this point. Twist together one more time, then pinch the ends to form the ears.

5-Break off small pieces of dough to form the tails. You can either roll the dough to form balls, or keep tucking the edges under till the dough forms a smooth ball. (I use the tuck method.) Place a tail on each bunny body:

6-Let the rolls rise till doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for about 18 minutes. Brush with butter while still hot.

These cute Easter bunny rolls are the perfect addition to any Easter meal!

Aren’t they the cutest little rolls you ever did see?

  1. How many does this make? Do I only have to let them rise the one time before baking??

    • Also, how big of a chunk of dough do you start with to for, the bunny body? Sorry to ask so many questions!

    • Sorry I just saw your questions. I usually start with a circle about 1 1/2-2 inches, but you can make them any size large or small. Just make sure they are all the same size so they bake evenly. Larger ones will need more time to bake, smaller ones will be faster.

    • I usually get about 2 1/2 dozen, but it totally depends on the size. When my kids help me, they tend to make them bigger, so we end up with fewer rolls. Just watch them as they are baking and take them out when they are golden brown. Hope this helps!

  2. This is so fun! We featured this post on our blog:

    Kara, I have been out of the habit of blog checking for a while, but when I saw your picture of Bunny Rolls, It hit a soft spot in my heart. My dad always made these. My variation is a bit different, adding some orange juice and orange zest in my dough, then we have a glaze for them making them a little sweet. I'm making them this Sunday for a belated party we are having. Oh I just love your site! And better start checking more frequently again! I so missed your giveaway!!!! Dang. Thats what having a baby does to you! MIA for a while! haha!!! Hope your Easter was wonderful!
