Bunny Bait Recipe


  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Spread popcorn on baking sheet in an even layer. Top with pretzel sticks, strawberry wafers, and mini marshmallows.

  2. Divide white chocolate chips into two small microwave safe bowls. Melt one bowl at a time, in 15-20 second intervals, until melted (stirring in between each interval).

  3. Add 2 or 3 drops of blue food coloring and stir. If necessary, add additional drops to reach desired schare. Repeat in other bowl using the purple food coloring.

  4. Transfer each color of melted chocolate into a plastic baggie. Snip the corner off to form a makeshift piping bag. Drizzle oven snack mix.

  5. Quickly add sprinkles, before the chocolate sets.

  6. Place baking sheet in refrigerator until the melted chocolate sets. Once set, remove from fridge and transfer to an airtight container to store until serving.


*You can pop your own popcorn or use store bought. For reference, ⅓ cup kernels = approx 10 cups popped.
