Bunny Bait is made with simple ingredients you can grab on your next grocery run. Can't find the exact thing I used or don't like something, no problem! This recipe is easily adaptable to your taste. Lets take a look at what you'll need:

  • Pretzels - mini twists, sticks or snaps, choose your favorite. This is what gives the mix an extra salty taste that is irresistible.

  • Chex - We used corn but wheat, rice or even honey nut would also be good.

  • Cheerios - I prefer regular but honey nut or even berry flavored would be delicious.

  • Vanilla Almond Bark - Almond Bark is so easy and I love the clean up. Pop the tray it comes in in the microwave to melt, pour in the bowl and throw the tray away. Can't get easier than that. You could also use white chocolate chips if you prefer.

  • Annies Birthday Cake Bunny Grahams - The little bunnies are so cute for Easter! Feel free to swap out regular Teddy Grahams or Vanilla Cupcake Gold Fish would work great.

  • Peanut M&Ms- I love the extra crunch of peanut M&Ms but regular, minis or peanut butter eggs would be yummy. Go for pastel colored.

  • Sour Bunnies - A little sour mixed in with all the sweet and salty is what gives this Bunny Bait an extra twist. I loved the bunnies for easter but any sour candy will work. Don't like sour? Add in jelly beans or gummy bears instead or just leave out.

  • Sprinkles - Go crazy! Use pastel pearls like I did, bright rainbow or Easter themed. Use one or a variety.
