The Ultimate Bunny Bait Recipe

Easy Easter Snack For Kids

Easter often coincides at least in part with tax season, which for accountants everywhere means endless hours at work. A few seasons ago in my department we implemented a “snack corner” to keep things fun and festive. The office snack corner resides in an empty cubical outside of my office and contains a variety of deliciously unhealthy food choices that are meant to sooth theEasy Easter Snack for Kids soul. Our office keeps the area well stocked, and it’s a good excuse to try new recipes, especially kid-friendly recipes.

What’s better for bonding with kids than some quality time in the kitchen? A few Easter seasons ago we put our heads together (literally) and scrolled through Pinterest looking for kid-friendly Easter snack inspiration. We came upon some “bunny bait” recipes and liked several, but my daughter would always find a missing ingredient that she wanted to add. So we got out a pen and some paper and made a list of ingredients that would go together to make the ULTIMATE bunny bait. Here is what we came up with. We hope you enjoy this kid-friendly Easter snack, perfect for school, work or anywhere in between!

Ultimate Bunny Bait Recipe


  • Three cups Corn Chex Cereal
  • Two cups Cheerios
  • One cup butter snap pretzels (we thought the butter would add to the flavor)
  • One bag butter popcorn, popped (unsalted would also work, but the sweet/salty factor would not be as good without the butter)
  • One bag peanut M&Ms (any flavor will do, but these are our favorite)
  • One tube of pastel sprinkles
  • Two bags of Nestle white chocolate chips


  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl stir together the Chex cereal, Cheerios, pretzels, and half of the sprinkles. Melt one bag of white chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl for twenty second increments (stirring between each) until completed melted. Pour over cereal mixture. Once thoroughly combined, pour the mixture onto one baking sheet to cool.
  3. In the same large mixing bowl stir together popcorn, M&Ms, and the remaining sprinkles. Melt the second bag of chips and pour over the popcorn mixture. Once well coated, pour the mixture on the other baking sheet to cool.
  4. After both mixtures have cooled completely, combine them.

Now bring this fun Easter treat to your office (or neighbors) as soon as possible or you will consume it all!
