We're into snacks at our house. There might be three main meals, but there are at least 42 other times in the day that my kids want to eat. My baby (yes, she's almost two, but she's my baby!!) asks every 5 seconds for a "nack", and I pretty much always acquiesce. If you saw her cute face, I bet you would too! When the holidays come around, I love to do simple snacks for our own little celebration, and with Easter coming, that means it's time for our favorite Bunny Bait Trail Mix!
This fun mix is perfect to munch on during any Easter gathering--as favors, in a cute bowl as an appetizer, or even as place cards. Tie it up with ribbon in clear bag or jar, and you've got a darling gift for a friend, neighbor or teacher. Or...make up a bowl and watch it be eaten in less than 30 minutes! It's also a great preschool snack!
It calls for just a few simple ingredients, and it literally is the fastest thing ever to make. We love peanut butter and pretzels together, so I used:
- a bag of Reese's Pieces eggs
- honey roasted peanuts
You could also add raisins, but I don't like them, so I didn't. :) Craisins, yogurt-covered raisins or pretzels, chocolate M&M's, sunflower seeds...you can really add whatever you like best, or leave out what doesn't work. I didn't measure anything--just added as much or as little of each ingredient as I wanted. That's the beauty of it--there is no right way to do this, and you can make it to your own liking. *I would leave out peanuts if you're taking it to a school, or to anyone or any place that you're not positive about a peanut allergy.
Leave some out for the Easter Bunny...he'll love it too!
