Serve Bunny Bait as a snack or dessert for Easter! Some of our other favorite Easter dessert recipes to serve alongside Bunny Bait are Carrot Cake, Spring Confetti Bars, and Carrot Cake Cupcakes. Bunny Bait Since this Leprechaun Bait was such a huge hit, I decided to add another fun snack mix to the site: Bunny Bait! We’ve got three types of cereal, pretzels, and M&M’s. Everything gets tossed together with melted white chocolate and becomes a mix you won’t be able to stop snacking on! (Or is that just me?!) How to make Bunny Bait Combine ingredients: Use a large bowl to mix all the ingredients. The bigger the bowl, the easier it will be for everything to get an even coating of white chocolate. Note on ingredients: This mix is best with ingredients that are generally the same size. While most of the ingredients are similar sizes, regular-sized pretzels can easily overpower everything else; use itty bitty pretzels or mini pretzel rods. Melt white chocolate: Microwave the chocolate until melted and then immediately toss it with the mix. White chocolate hardens quickly, so work fast. Let harden: Spread the Bunny Bait onto the baking sheet and let it stand at room temperature to harden. If you’re in a rush, refrigerate for about 10-20 minutes. Break apart and enjoy or package up! QUICK TIP Break the Bunny Bait into fairly small chunks. Smaller bites are easy on smaller mouths, and this helps pace littler children so they don’t eat too much, too quickly! Bunny Bait tips Use high-quality white chocolate for best results: Using premium chocolate will give you both a better melt and a better flavor. (My favorite on this bunny bait is Ghirardelli® or Guittard®.) Get creative: As long as the quantities generally follow the recipe, get creative with what you add. Some ideas: popped popcorn, peanuts or cashews, and/or festive sprinkles! The best tip I have for avoiding burned white chocolate: Stir the chocolate often in between the melting process (every 30 seconds) and stir it for at least 20-25 seconds in between each microwave burst. Remember, the chocolate is still melting even outside of the microwave. More white chocolate melting tips here. Storing Tips Store Bunny Bait in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. We like this snack mix best within 3-4 days. You can freeze any leftover Bunny Bait in an airtight container/bag for up to 3 months; thaw at room temperature.
