Bunny Bait

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Nestlé SweeTARTS. The opinions and text are all mine.

Bunny Bait is candy-coated popcorn, cereal, and pretzel sticks mixed with plenty of sprinkles and Easter candy. Great for treat bags, Easter baskets, movie night, or general snacking!

Bunny Bait - fun recipe for Easter!!


I'm kind of a nerd when it comes to holidays. Not only do I like to talk to my kids about our family's traditions and why we do what we do to celebrate, but I usually try to do something extra special in addition to what we normally do. Sometimes, it's as simple as decorating gingerbread men at Christmas ... or making a fun new red, white, and blue dessert for the 4th of July.

A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to the kids about Easter. After our conversation, I thought it would be fun to find a few Easter-themed movies to watch and create some sort of fun treat to go along with it.

What's a movie without snacks? The kids suggested making a snack mix with some of our favorite Easter candy and I picked the popcorn, cereal, and pretzel combination to go along with it.

This recipe is so easy and the kids loved being able to help. The hardest part was waiting long enough for the candy coating to set up so we could eat it! You can speed up the process by popping it in the fridge for 15-20 minutes or so! 😊

SweeTARTS Soft Bites Bunnies, Sour Bunny Gummies, Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies, and Soft & Chewy Ropes are the perfect addition to any springtime recipes and they can be found at major retailers nationwide. I've included them in this Bunny Bait recipe, but they're also ideal for stuffing Easter eggs for a sweet reward! 

I love that the SweeTARTS Soft Bites Bunnies, Sour Bunny Gummies, and Soft & Chewy Ropes contain no artificial flavors or colors. In particular, I really like the SweeTARTS Soft Bites Bunnies because the jelly gummies have a surprisingly soft texture with a cute bunny shape! They come in an assortment of classic flavors with a unique melt away smoothness. 

My kiddos LOVE the SweeTARTS Soft & Chewy Ropes (a dazzling blend of chewy cherry, licorice-style rope with a fruit punch filling) and the Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies (not only delicious but ideal for stuffing Easter eggs). I've included all of our SweeTARTS favorites in this Bunny Bait and you can be sure that they'll be in this year's Easter baskets as well!

The kids enjoyed this Bunny Bait so much that we will be making treat bags to share with our neighbors. This makes a great classroom treat too!
