Bunny Bait is a quick and easy, sweet and salty snack that is perfect for an Easter celebration or springtime treat.
chex mix, Easter
Rice Chex cereal
honey nut cheerios
vanilla almond bark
chopped (2 cups or 8 squares)
bag easter M&Ms
Prepare a sheet pan by lining it with parchment paper. Set it aside.
Mix together the rice Chex cereal, honey nut cheerios, pretzel sticks, and salted peanuts in a large bowl.
Melt the vanilla almond bark in the microwave using a large microwave safe dish. Microwave it in increments of 15 seconds, stirring after each interval, until it has melted completely
Pour the melted almond bark into the bowl with the cereal mixture and then toss together until thoroughly combined.
Gently fold in the easter M&Ms and butterscotch chips.
Transfer to the prepared sheet pan.
Spread everything out onto the sheet pan evenly and let it set for about 45 minutes.
Once the almond bark has set and hardened, break into pieces before transferring to a serving dish.
Store this snack mix, covered in an airtight container, on the countertop for up to a week (after that it starts to go stale).
You can freeze your Bunny Bait in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months, then thaw on the counter when you are ready to serve.
If you break the Bunny Bait into fairly small pieces, it's easier for little hands to hold and for small mouths to chew.
Instead of parchment paper, you can use wax paper, aluminum foil, or just spray the sheet pan really well with cooking spray.
Once the chocolate coating has melted, be prepared to work quickly.
This is a great, versatile recipe that you can easily swap out different kinds of M&Ms and sprinkles to fit any holiday or party theme.
