This adorable Bunny Bait is the perfect no-bake treat to make this Easter! It comes together in just 15 minutes, can be made in advance and is the best mash-up between salty and sweet. This delicious snack mix full of white chocolate-covered Chex cereal, Cheerios, pretzels and M&Ms. It would make a great Easter basket gift or party food all throughout spring!

Ingredient Breakdown

M&Ms – I used pastel M&Ms to keep this snack mix on theme for spring/Easter.

Pretzel twists – adds some saltiness to the Bunny Bait! You can also use pretzel sticks.

Chex cereal – I used Rice Chex Cereal but you can use whichever flavor you prefer!

Cheerios – I used plain Cheerios since the M&Ms and white chocolate already add a lot of sweetness, but you can use whichever flavor you prefer!

White chocolate – holds everything together and adds sweetness. I love this brand.

Easter sprinkles – optional but adds a fun pop of color to the Bunny Bait!

The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to making this Bunny Bait. Some delicious substitutions/additions to this recipe are:

  • Nuts – peanuts, almonds, cashews, etc. would add some extra crunch/saltiness.
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Other kinds of cereal – swap out the Chex/Cheerios for other flavors or add Cap’n Crunch, Lucky Charms, etc.!
  • Popcorn
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs or M&M shaped Easter Eggs

Pro Tips For Bunny Bait

  • Weigh your ingredients using a kitchen scale! Measuring ingredients by volume is not accurate.
  • Work quickly once the chocolate has melted to ensure that it doesn’t harden before you coat your mixture.
  • Use high quality white chocolate! It will taste better and be easier to melt. I recommend Callebaut or Ghirardelli.
