Easter is such a fun time of the year! Spring is in bloom. Fun family Easter traditions await. But, it can be a busy time, too!
If you need an easy Easter treat that can be made quickly, try Bunny Bait.
Chances are you’ve had Bunny Bait before… you know the classic Muddy Buddies recipe? To make Bunny Bait however, you’re going to tweak the recipe just a little to make it festive for Easter!
Don’t worry, this Easter recipe is quick (under 15 minutes to make) and easy enough for kids to help you.
What You Need For Muddy Buddies Bunny Bait:
- 9 cups Chex cereal (Rice is the best for this in my opinion)
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or 1 cup white chocolate chips)
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- Easter M&Ms
You’ll find the full recipe with directions below. But basically, you’re going to melt the chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter together. You can do this in the microwave or on the stove. If you want to save time, the microwave will be much quicker!
Then you’ll stir together the Chex cereal with the melted goodness. And then shake powdered sugar on top. Don’t forget to sprinkle Easter M&Ms on top!
Serve it straight from a bowl, or package it up for cute little Easter gifts.
How to Gift It:
Use clear cellophane bags to package up the Bunny Bait. I always keep a big stash of these cellophane treat bags on hand for gifts like this! Tie with baker’s twine and attach the Bunny Bait gift tag.
