Instructions

Prep

Bunny chow mix: To make the Bunny Chow, mix a handful (about 1/4 cup) of the Funfetti muddy buddies, with a handful (about 1/4 cup) of the cheese cheddar crackers in a bowl. Toss in a small handful or two of the jelly beans and M&M’s. Mix to combine the ingredients. Transfer the mix to your small condiment bowl. Set aside.

Make the herb mix: Place your goat cheese log in the freezer to harden for at least 5 minutes. This will make the goat cheese easy to handle when rolling over the fresh herbs.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Roughly chop a few sprigs of fresh parsley and fresh dill (removing the dill leaves from the stem, resulting in about 1/4 cup), and an entire packet (.5oz/14g) of fresh chives. Transfer to a small bowl to combine. Spread the fresh herb mixture on your parchment lined baking sheet.

Once the goat cheese has hardened, remove from its packaging and gently roll over the herbs, pressing to adhere them to the log. Continue to roll and press until the goat cheese is evenly coated in its entirety with the fresh herbs. Set aside.

Build the Board:

1. Set your condiment bowls. Place the bowl with the bunny chow mix on the board. Scoop some strawberry and rhubarb preserves into another small bowl and place on the board across from the bunny mix. Pour the cheddar crackers into a third bowl and place across from both the bunny chow mix and the preserves. The formation of all three bowls should form a triangle.

2. Place the cheeses on the board. Place the herbed goat cheese log on the left side of the board. Carefully slice the entire log into 1/2 inch pieces. Use a cookie cutter to cut three slices of white cheddar cheese into 5-6 bunny-shaped pieces. Place three of the bunnies on the right side of the board, reserving the remaining bunnies for finishing the board. Grab a handful of yellow cheddar cheese cubes and set towards the top of the board between the bowls of bunny chow mix and the preserves. Set another handful of yellow cheese cubes at the bottom of the board between the sliced goat cheese and the bowl of cheddar crackers.

3. Place the meats on the board. Fold the salami in half and then again into quarters. Place on the board between the bowl of bunny chow mix and the bowl of cheddar crackers. Repeat for the remaining slices utilizing the two bowls to keep the salami slices upright. Carefully remove a slice of prosciutto from its paper backing. Fold in half, lengthwise, with the fatty white part facing up. Fold the slice over on itself to form a ribbon pattern. Place on the board between the bowl of cheddar crackers and the cheddar cheese cubes. Repeat for the remaining prosciutto slices, forming them around the bowl of cheddar crackers, until they reach the salami slices.

4. Set the veggies. Place two handfuls of the baby carrots on the board; one handful will go underneath the bowl of preserves, the other, above the bowl of bunny mix. Grab two handfuls of sugar snap peas and pile them on both sides of the salami. Use a sharp paring knife or your fingers to carefully open two sugar snap peas. Place them on top of the sugar snap pea piles.

5. Place the fruits. Place small bunches of grapes underneath both piles of sugar snap peas, and above the bowl of bunny chow mix. Set a small handful of blackberries on the right side of the board in the space between the peas and the grapes. Set another handful of blackberries on the lower right section of the board beside the bowl of cheddar crackers. Sprinkle a few blueberries on top of both piles of blackberries.

6. Add the crackers. Lay 10-12 vegetable crackers in the large space between the sliced goat cheese and the bowl of bunny chow mix. Place a small handful of about 6-8 rosemary raisin crackers at the top right of the board, between the cheese cubes and the preserves.

7. Add the candies and garnish. Place a pair of marshmallow peeps next to the rosemary crackers and place another pair underneath the bowl of cheddar crackers. Set three chocolate bunnies beneath the goat cheese. Fill in any empty spaces with extra Chex mix. Finish the board by placing the reserved white cheddar bunnies on the board wherever you see fit.
