  • bunny carrot cake cheese ball recipe - cute Easter dessert idea

    I had a conversation last night with a friend/reader who mentioned that I don’t often share photos of the girls here and wondered why. Honestly, I never gave it too much thought! I love creating for the girls, but I rarely find time to do so when they’re around. I get so much accomplished during the three hours and 45 minutes they’re at school two days a week. Outside of that, I’m a hot mess like any other mom with the occasional episode at Target, challenge to get them to pick their rooms up or even just getting them dressed to face the day.

    It’s easy to get caught up in pretty pictures and think everything is always perfect, but I’m just an average mom finding ways to celebrate everyday life. After a crazy week, I made this little bunny carrot cake cheese ball as a special after school snack for the girls.

    I can’t take full credit for the carrot cake cheese ball – my sister put in a special request after we made a Santa Fe cheese ball the other day, suggesting I use carrot cake mix and cream cheese.  I decided to top it with cream cheese icing and turn it into a bunny for an extra dose of Easter fun.
