Bunny Bait

I love making treats with my kids! It is even better if I can put it out as a holiday snack, making the house look festive to visitors. This Bunny Bait can be made using any seasonal M&Ms just come up with a clever name that the kids will love-or better yet, let them brainstorm a name. 

  • 1 bag microwave popcorn, popped
  • 6 oz. of candy making chocolates (I bought my spring colors in the bakery section of my grocery store)
  • 1 bag of seasonal M&Ms
  • Pretzel sticks, broken into pieces (my kids had a blast doing this while the pretzels were in a freezer bag)
  • colored sprinkles if you desire
  1. Place popcorn in large bowl with pretzel pieces and M&Ms. Mix well.
  2. Heat candy in double boiler OR use your microwave, heating and mixing in 30 second intervals until smooth.
  3. Drizzle melted candy over popcorn mixture and stir; be careful, the M&Ms will sink.
  4. Spread out on wax paper. Top with sprinkles. Let cool.
  5. Break into pieces. Serve (or bag them with as gifts/favors with colorful ribbon).
      Difficulty: Easy-my kids did everything but melt the candy :)
      Time: 20 minutes
