Bunny Munch Mix is a sweet and salty party mix that will make this year’s Easter baskets the best yet!! Just say no to plastic green grass and yes to Bunny Munch Mix!

Easter is on its way, and this year, I’m determined not to leave everything until the last minute! With two boys, the holidays are always extra fun, but they take lots of extra prep, too.
Every year, I try to resist falling back on the old “colored-grass-and-chocolate-egg” basket routine, and this Easter, I’ve got a simple yet creative idea that I think will be a huge hit: Easter Bunny Munch Mix.
This sweet and salty snack mix is a fun way to help little ones celebrate the holiday! It features two SweeTARTS holiday-themed candies, including temptingly tangy Soft Bites Bunnies and pucker-inducing Sour Bunny Gummies. Both come in adorable Easter shapes that will thrill your kids… right before they gobble them up! For another dose of fruity flavor, I also added a handful of SweeTARTS Soft & Chewy Ropes to the mix, they are a chewy cherry licorice with a fun fruit punch filling.
To balance out the chewy sweet and sour candies, I added salty pretzels, crispy toasted cereals, and creamy white chocolate chips. With an exciting blend of flavors and textures, you may even have a hard time keeping adults away from this yummy snack! I personally can’t get enough of the bunny-shaped limited-edition SweeTARTS Sour Bunny Gummies and their tongue-twisting pucker.
I won’t tell you how much I munched while making it!
I love Easter Bunny Munch Mix for so many reasons. Mainly, it provides balance, in taste and is super fun without being overly indulgent. We get a sweet treat, but SweeTARTS Soft Bites Bunnies, Sour Bunny Gummies, and Soft & Chewy Ropes contain no artificial flavors or colors. That is hard to find in Easter candy! And you get a tasty, delicious soft texture that is easy to eat, and a charming bunny shape. I love the that the SweeTARTS Soft Bites Bunnies offer an assortment of classic flavors in a jelly gummy with a unique melt away smoothness. It makes them the perfect addition to this munch mix.
I also threw in some Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies, but keep in mind they are a hard candy, so be careful if serving to younger kids or a crowd. Either way, these fun treats are an affordable, easy to find, delicious addition to my spring munch mix. It is simple to make, and the kids can even help! I know my boys love being able to help make this fun treat.
Easter Bunny Munch Mix is so versatile, I plan on making a huge batch of it just before the holiday. It can be wrapped in colored cellophane and given as treats to neighbors and friends. It can be served in big bowl at Easter get-togethers and scooped into cups with a ladle for a portable snack to nibble on-the-go. And with the leftover treats (since it doesn’t use a whole bag), just fill plastic Easter eggs, which can be placed in baskets or around the house for a hunt!
