hippity hopping & some bunny bait

Join us in all the fun:

Easter is just a hippy hop away (get it…a bunny hops) & that means it is time to break out some of those fun Easter treats and this bunny bait is definitely one of my favorites.  This super quick treat is perfect for all your Easter baskets, teacher treats, neighbor treats or just a fun yummy for the kids.

A treat for everyone

The beauty of this little Easter bunny bait treat is that you can use almost any combo of candy that you like.  This time I used robins eggs, plain M&M’s and sprinkles with popcorn and pretzels…but you could use chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, mini chocolate caramels, mini peanut butter cups or even peeps…really the possibilities are almost endless.  You could also drizzle colored chocolates over it as it cools if you want to add another fun & festive addition…just make sure you let the chocolate cool before you break it all apart or the chocolate will go everywhere.

Make it cute

To package this delicious little treat I put them in plastic treat bags with a cute tag but you could also put them in mason jars (with a little peep for extra fun),  in a festive bowl or even in a zip closure baggie.  The colors make it so cute that anything you put in makes it super festive.

Easter will be here before we know it…you better get hopping…sorry I just can’t stop with the bunny talk.

PS…Even though Easter is over I made this bunny bait treat just the other day with some M&M candies, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and mini rolo candies and summer colored sprinkles …it was a perfect treat to welcome summer!!
