We Used Mini Eggs In Our Bunny Bait Recipe And There's No Turning Back

Want to know how to make the best bunny bait for Easter? You've come to the right place. In addition to salty meets sweet deliciousness, we decided to add everyone's favorite Easter candy, Cadbury Mini Eggs. This took things from gold to platinum and now there is NO turning back. This will undoubtedly please the Easter bunny and might become an annual April staple in your household.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups popcorn
  • 3 cups of pretzel bits or mini pretzels
  • 1 ¾ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cup of Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • sprinkles
  • ½ cup yellow candy melts
  • ½ cup blue candy melts

Instructions

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the pretzels and popcorn to a mixing bowl. Try to choose one that has some space left for you to mix around the bait.

Microwave the white chocolate until it's melted. (The easiest way to do this is two rounds of 30 seconds and stirring in between.) Pour the white chocolate over the popcorn and mix it until everything is well coated.

Dump the popcorn out onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it evenly. Melt the candy melts in the microwave (using the same method as the chocolate chips) and drizzle them evenly onto the mix.

We like to use yellow and blue but purple and pink are also great options for an Easter Snack. Use colorful sprinkles to top off the bait and then let it set.

Once it's cooled off you can make individual " to go" bags or serve it up as a family treat. This is a completely satisfying snack that's light enough because of the popcorn but will also please sweet and salty lovers alike.
