Prep Time: 25 min.

If you want a festive appetizer idea, check out these adorable Easter Bunny Mozzarella Crostini. They’re baguette slices toasted golden in a buttered pan, topped with spicy chili hummus, creamy fresh mozzarella shaped into bunnies, and a red cheddar and dill carrot.

They are the perfect savory starter for your Easter get-togethers and a great option to try something different than the usual caprese. Feel free to swap the hummus with basil pesto or guacamole, and use cheddar, feta, or goat cheese in place of the mozzarella.

Do you want to prep these ahead of time? No problem. Make the bunny cutouts and store these in the fridge. Prepare the crispy crostini, and once you're ready for the final assembly, top them with hummus and the rest of the ingredients. Delicious!
