Rumor has it, if you leave this sweet treat out, the Easter Bunny will come hoppin to your house. That is, if there’s any left!

Kinda like leaving milk + cookies for Santa, ya know?

Hopefully the Easter Bunny will fill your Easter Basket will all the best candy + goodies in exchange.

Question – Does the Easter Bunny fill your kiddos Easter baskets? Or just hide the eggs? I always gave the Easter Bunny all the credit. But this year, I’m taking it…Ha! I’ll let him hide the eggs.

WARNING: this bunny bait is deliciously dangerous!

Salty peanuts + pretzel sticks. Crunchy rice chex. Perfectly balanced with the sweetness from the Hostess Donettes Powdered Mini Donuts cereal. I used this cereal since I had it on hand. OMG, game changer from the plain Cheerios!

Add melted white chocolate + your festive M&M’s and you’re done! Good luck not eating handful after handful. I couldn’t resist the pile sitting on the counter this morning.

Beware, this recipe makes a large batch. I will be bundling mine up for the beach this weekend.

Note: you can add any colored candy and make it a great treat for every Holiday. Mint green M&M’s for St Patrick’s day. Or red and green for Christmas. You’ll still have that same great taste no matter what color candy is used.

Would also be super cute packaged up in mini bags with ribbon at the top for friends + classmates + neighbors.

And can we take a minute to talk about this adorable bunny ear cutting board? I found it in the Target dollar spot last week. Except it wasn’t a dollar. Ha! Is anything a dollar in the dollar spot anymore? Still 100% worth the $5 price tag. If you haven’t checked it out lately, make a pit stop on your next Target haul. They’ve got some super cute Easter items. Like the Bunny Bags I buy every year for our Annual Stinson Beach trip.
