This is called “Bunny Bait” and it’ll sure bring the Easter Bunny out this year!


– 4 cups rice Chex cereal
– 2 cups Easter M&M’s (pick the prettiest pastel ones)
– 1 bag of white chocolate chips (about 12 oz.)
– A sprinkle of sea salt, to taste
– Optional: 1 cup pretzel sticks, broken into pieces for a salty twist
– Optional: Pastel-colored sprinkles for extra whimsy
1. Carefully spread your rice Chex in a thin layer on a large baking sheet. Ain’t no need to grease it; this mix will be just fine as is.
2. In a doublе boiler or a microwave, gently melt those white chocolate chips until they’re smooth as a calm lake at dawn. If you’re using the microwave for ease, just be sure to stir every 30 seconds to prevent any scorchin’.
3. Now, artistically drizzle that melted white chocolate over the Chex, making sure each piece gets a decent amount of coverage. It’s the glue that holds our bait together.
4. Before that white chocolate starts setting, liberally sprinkle on your pretty Easter M&M’s, the pretzel bits if you’re using ’em, a touch of sea salt, and those sprinkles if you’d like an extra dash of color.
5. Let your concoction sit until the chocolate hardens. I like to pop mine into the fridge to set it quicker, but if your kitchen is cool, it’ll set up just fine on the counter.
6. Once the chocolate’s set, break your Easter Bunny Bait into chunks and serve it forth for all to enjoy.
Variations & Tips
– Feel free to switch things up if you fancy – different cereals like Corn Chex or even wheat Chex can be mighty tasty, too.
– If allergies are a concern, swap the white chocolate for a dairy-free alternative and pick candy that fits dietary needs.
– To keep your Bunny Bait from turning into a sticky mess, especially on a warmer spring day, store it in a cool place until it’s time to nibble.
– For a bit of extra indulgence, you can mix in a handful of miniature marshmallows after the white chocolate has cooled just a smidgeon; adds a cloud-like sweetness right into the mix.

With a recipe like this, Easter’s sure to be filled with laughter, joy, and perhaps a little magic, too. Happy Easter, y’all!
