Bunny Bait!

… Like man bait, but for bunnies :)

This stuff is addictive!

It’s very yummy as well as decorative so it makes a great snacking treat for family and guests, or Easter basket treats or gifts. You can have the kids help add the candy and sprinkles and make teacher or neighbor gifts.

Bunny Bait

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces vanilla candy melts, coating or bark
  • 2 bags microwave Kettle Corn, popped as directed (full size bags, not single serving)
  • 2 cups pretzels, mini, sticks, squares or pretzel goldfish
  • 2 cups honey roasted peanuts or almonds
  • Assorted pastel Easter candies
  • 1/3 cup Pastel Sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Line two large baking sheets with foil or parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Melt the coating as directed and allow to cool. It can be a little warm but not hot or it will make your popcorn soggy. Nobody likes soggy popcorn :)
  3. While coating is melting, transfer cooked popcorn to a very large mixing bowl and allow to cool completely. Stir occasionally for even cooling.
  4. Stir pretzels and nuts into the cooled popcorn.
  5. Drizzle with half of the melted coating and stir to combine.
  6. Drizzle with remaining half and stir until popcorn is coated.
  7. Add candies and stir just until combined.
  8. Divide mixture between the two lined baking sheets and spread into single layer.
  9. Immediately sprinkle with the sprinkles over the top so they stick to the coating.
  10. Allow to sit for about 30-60 minutes or until set.
  11. Crumble mixture and store in tightly covered bowl or resealable plastic bags.

Note: For Easter basket treats or favors for guests, scoop into individual clear or spring patterned cellophane bags and tie with pretty ribbon.

These little treasures are delightful! They are delicious as well as beautiful. You could serve them on a platter as an appetizer for sharing or you could arrange a few of them on individual salad dish for each person. I went for family style and arranged them on a platter and placed in the center of my coffee table in the living room and let everyone grab as desired. The red pepper confetti was an afterthought for color and not required. I just had a red pepper that I knew wasn't going to be … Read more»

The Loving Kitchen (2)

Hey Sweet Friends! I am so excited to welcome you to my new site! And... to announce the upcoming release of my very first cookbook, The Loving Kitchen! Woo Hoo! Before I get to the details, a huge thank you to my mommy for that "extra" check she sent me a couple of months ago. That paid for the redesign of my site. My mom is my biggest supporter, emotionally and financially. Without her I would be living on someone's sofa. God blessed me with the awesomest mom EVER! Friends, I … Read more»
