Here bunny bunny bunny….I have a treat for you. I know it is a long road down the bunny trail to get to my house and I wanted to make sure by the time you get here you don’t pass out. That’s right. I’ve tied it in a nice little bundle for you so you don’t spill it along the way hopping along the trail.
I came across this recipe last year RIGHT after Easter and was so bummed I did not find it before. This addictive mix of salty sweet is for sure going to be a winner in your house; whether it be for the Easter bunny or for one of your little gremlins. A nice
bribe, errr I mean incentive to be quiet in church. It will take you all of 15 minutes to whip it up. Once it cools package it in bags and give the extra away to your friends. Original recipe for bunny bait by Bake at 350.
I realized after I took this picture I forgot to include the M&M’s in the shot…But you get the idea.
Easter Bunny Bait
One package Wilton White Candy Melts
2 packages “Tender White” Micro wave Popcorn
3 handfuls pastel M&M’s
3 handfuls salted party peanuts
2 handfuls mini twig style pretzels snapped into 3rd’s
confetti confectionery sprinkles of your choice.
Directions: Microwave the popcorn and sort through it to pick out any unpopped kernels; discard. In a large bowl place the popcorn, M&M’s, peanuts, and pretzels. Place the candy melts in a glass measuring container and microwave on high and checking every 30 seconds stir and reheat until the coating is melted. Pour the melted candy melts over the popcorn mixture and working quickly mix the contents making sure to get down on the bottom of the bowl and mix thoroughly make sure all the peanuts and twigs get incorporated. Sprinkle on the confetti a little at a time and stir and repeat until you are satisfied with the amount. Once its mixed dump out onto a Silpat lined sheet tray or a tray lined with baking paper. I’m not sure if this would stick so I used the Silpat just in case.

Does this treat stay fresh over night? Or best served same day?
Allie, it does stay fresh overnight; it still stays crispy. I would even say it would stay for a few days. Enjoy!
