Hop on over to the kitchen and get mixing! Everyone knows popcorn is one of my favorite foods. This crunchy treat is sweet and salty, and comes together in a flash. Kids will love helping to make Bunny Bait just in time for Easter.
Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Spread the popcorn, cereal, pretzels, and peanuts evenly on the pan.
Melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 45 seconds. Stir, then continue to microwave in 15 second increments until completely melted. Pour over the popcorn mixture.
Lightly mix together.
While the chocolate is still wet, add the M&Ms, sprinkles and salt, then mix well. Let the Bunny Bait set until cooled, about 10 minutes (if you can wait that long!).
Break apart and enjoy! (And Happy Easter!)
