So a few days ago I kept coming across this picture on Pinterest, called Bunny Bait. “Cute”, I thought. After searching through a few recipes I finally settled on this one. AND.OH.MY.GOD. This isn’t Bunny Bait, it’s crack! No kidding, as I was scarfing handfuls of it in my mouth, I turned to my husband and said, “This should be classified as an illegal substance. I would pimp you out for this stuff”. It is that good.
Perhaps it’s just me but I have something for salt and sweet together, and this fits the bill nicely. So, there is no doubt, you’ll catch a bunny with this bait, but that’s if you don’t eat it all first.
1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
12 oz. white chocolate candy melts (available at Bulk Barn)
1 1/3 cups pretzel sticks
1 12 oz. bag pastel coloured M&M’s
Easter Coloured Sprinkles
Make popcorn…..the easy, healthy way. Pour into a large bowl, removing any unpopped kernels. Toss in pretzel and M&M’s. Melt white chocolate in microwave in microwave safe bowl on high in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval until melted and smooth. Drizzle half of melted white chocolate over popcorn mixture, then stir, tossing gently a few times with rubber spatula. Then drizzle remaining half of melted white chocolate over popcorn, and gently stir until evenly coated. Do not overstir. Pour mixture into a single layer onto to wax paper. Sprinkle with Easter sprinkles before chocolate hardens. Allow to cool and harden, then gently break into pieces and lock yourself in a room and enjoy. I kid. Store it in a airtight container or fill cello bags and tie with pretty ribbon to give away.
This would also be great for birthday parties as a party favour.
