M&Ms- Colorful red M&Ms will make the noses on the bunnies, but feel free to use other colors for a fun and unique spin. Or, just eat the other M&Ms while you wait for these to bake.
Chocolate Chips- To make the eyes on our bunnies, you'll want to use some chocolate chips.
Almond Slivers- Slivered almonds make great whiskers for the bunnies because everyone knows that bunnies have long whiskers.

🔪 Instructions for Easter Bunny Biscuits
Step 1: Open your can of biscuits and separate them so that they are no longer stuck together. Set half of them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, evenly spaced. Set aside.
Step 2: Place half of the biscuits in front of you on a cutting board.
Step 3: Using a sharp knife or clean scissors (if the kids are helping) cut the biscuits in half.
Step 4: Place the sliced halves next to the biscuits on the baking sheet so that the bottoms of the halves are resting against the whole one.
Step 5: Add your bunny face. Place two chocolate chips for the eyes, one red M&M for the nose, and 2 slivered almonds on each side of the nose for the whiskers.
Step 6: Repeat for all of the bunnies.
Step 7: Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 13 minutes or as directed by your can of biscuits.
Serve and enjoy!
🍴 Recipe Tips
You can use any canned biscuits for this recipe including cheaper store-brand biscuits, small biscuits, butter flavored, etc. We chose to use Grands Flaky Layers biscuits because we always keep them on hand (they're my husband's favorite).
The most important thing to remember is that you will need an even number of biscuits to make this recipe so if you buy a can of 5 count biscuits, you will actually need 2 cans (for a total of 10 biscuits) which will make 5 bunnies.
The baking time and temperature will change depending on the biscuit that you use. My canned biscuits said to bake at 350F for 13-16 minutes, but your biscuits could say 400F for 10-12 minutes. Do what the can says so that your biscuits aren't overcooked or undercooked.
💭 Recipe FAQs
Yes, you can use veggies like shredded carrots for the whiskers, diced mushrooms for the nose, black sliced olives for the eyes. These are just some examples though and you can really get creative with whatever you want including broccoli florets and cherry tomatoes.
These biscuits are best when enjoyed fresh and hot out of the oven but you can easily get them to last 2-3 days in an airtight container at room temperature. I recommend laying them in a flat container to keep the ears from falling off.
These bunnies would be great as-is for a simple snack but you can also add some chocolate gravy over the top for a sweeter mealtime experience. Serve them up as a dessert or breakfast and I'm sure there will be no complaints.
