How to Make Easter Bunny Crescent Bites

Be sure to check out the full printable recipe card at the end of the post.

First, unroll a can of crescent roll dough and pinch together the seams to create one large rectangle. Then, use a round cookie cutter (mine was 2.5 inches) to cut out 4 circles. These circles will be used to press down in the mini-muffin pan sprayed with cooking spray to form your bunny cups!

Press the crescent dough circles down into each cavity of the miniature muffin pan and press gently. Then, pierce the bottom with a fork several times.

Use the leftover scraps of crescent roll dough to make the cute Easter bunny ears that you will stick down in the cups.

I just used a sharp knife to carefully carve out little bunny ear shapes (about 1.5 inches tall). You should be able to get 4 sets of ears from the extra dough.

Each can of crescent roll dough makes 4 complete Easter bunny bites. Doubling the recipe with 2 cans makes 8 bunny bites.

Bake your crescent roll cups at 350 degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes or until the cups turn golden brown. Don’t worry if they puff up during baking. Afterward, use the back of a wooden spoon to gently press the center of each crescent roll cup to create a well for your dip filling!

Meanwhile, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, bake the little bunny ears. You can bake them simultaneously, but since they cook faster, keep a close eye on them. Mine were done in about 3-5 minutes. Keep a close eye to prevent burning.

Fillings to Use in Easter Bunny Crescent Bites

One of the many reasons why I love this Easter appetizer is that you can fill the crescent cups with just about anything. I chose a simple spinach-artichoke dip.

Now, if you want to bake your dip filling inside the cup, you can absolutely do that (add a couple of minutes to your bake time). I find that the bunny ears stick down easier in a cold dip rather than a baked one, but you can certainly press them down in a hot dip if you do it right after they’re removed from the oven. Here are some more filling ideas…

  • 1 circular cookie cutter


  • 2 cans Crescent Roll Dough
  • 1 tbsp fresh herbs (chopped (parsley, chives))

Spinach-Artichoke Dip

  • 1/3 cup artichoke hearts (from can, drained and chopped)
  • 1/3 cup frozen spinach (thawed, squeeze out excess moisture and chop)
  • 2 tablespoons onion (finely diced)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350℉. Spray a mini-muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Unroll both cans of crescent roll dough and pinch seams together to form two rectangles.
  • Cut out 2-3" circles (this should yield 8 circles, 4 out of each rectangle of crescent dough). Gently press each crescent roll circle into the mini-muffin pan and pierce the bottom with a fork.
  • Use leftover edges of the crescent roll dough to carve out 8 sets of bunny ears (about 1 – 1.5 inches tall) with a sharp knife. You'll need 16 individual ears for 8 pairs. Place the ears on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Place both the muffin tin and baking sheet in the oven. The bunny ears will be done in about 3-5 minutes, watch carefully so they don't burn. The crescent roll bites bake in 8-10 minutes, remove from oven when they are golden brown.
  • Use the back of a wooden spoon to carefully press down into the center of each baked crescent bite to form a well for the filling. Set aside.
  • To make spinach-artichoke dip, stir together all ingredients. You will have some leftover (enjoy with tortilla chips) but reserve about 1 cup for this recipe.
  • Scoop the spinach-artichoke dip (or dip of your choosing) into each baked crescent bite.
  • Carefully press a pair of bunny ears into the filling.
  • Garnish with chopped herbs like parsley or chives. Enjoy!


If you don’t have a round cookie cutter, you can use a glass or jar flipped upside down to make your rounds!

    These were not only delicious but were a fun representation of the Easter bunny. They were a big hit as an appetizer for Easter dinner. My guests really enjoyed eating them. I was able to make 20 “bunnies” from the two packs of crescent rolls with careful placement. I used kitchen shears to cut the ears from scraps.

    Such a great idea for Easter. My husband added small cut outs of black olives for eyes. It was a big success from the family.
