What is Bunny Bait Popcorn?
Bunny bait is a salty and sweet snack mix made with popcorn, Rice Chex cereal, chocolate candies and mini marshmallows with a drizzle of white chocolate to hold it all together. Some people call it Bunny Chow, but these are all pretty much the same.
How to Make Bunny Bait Snack Mix for Easter
To make this snack mix recipe super easy, I started out with a bag of plain popcorn -- Boom Chicka Pop. You can pop your own or use any brand. Just layer some Chex cereal and popcorn on a baking sheet, and drizzle melted white chocolate all over it.
Next, toss in some mini marshmallow bits. You can find these with regular marshmallows, or you can use mini marshmallows. For an extra pop of color, I added some pink sugar sprinkles.
Then, add pastel Easter eggs and M & M candies. Toss it all together, and let it hang out and dry for about 30 minutes. Of course, you have to taste it!
We happened to have some Annie's White Cheddar Bunnies, so I also tossed in a few of those. No rules here!
