Hey peeps!! Have you made Easter Bunny Snack Mix? It’s one of my all-time favorite snacks (any time of year – not just Easter), but it’s especially fun for the holidays when it’s delicious, addictive, and pretty!!
I mean seriously…. salty and sweet. Chocolate and popcorn. It’s the best of all worlds!!
My favorite part is that I can make it under 20 minutes and it’s inexpensive! You could buy everything you need for less than $10 and still have snacks leftover!
Need a quick snack? Done. Need a fun treat to send to your kids’ class? Done.
One other thing I should mention. Usually when we snack on popcorn, we use an air popper with butter flavored non-stick cooking spray and salt. But my youngest kiddo is totally addicted to popcorn, so I buy microwave popcorn that he can make for himself or for my husband to have at work…
Anyway, while my video uses homemade popcorn, we really prefer the microwave popcorn for this recipe. The already salted, super buttery kind, if you must know.
In addition to the popcorn, you’ll need M&M’s, pretzels and candy melts (or white chocolate) at the very least. You could also toss in any other snacks you enjoy… nuts, Chex cereal, raisins, chocolate chips, candy corn, other seasonal M&M’s… you get the idea.
