Easter Bunny Trail Mix

Easter Bunny Trail Mix

If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that my family is all about popcorn. Since I had some leftover Wilton melting chocolates from a few other projects, I needed to whip up a batch of Easter Bunny Trail Mix.



* Wilton melting chocolates (one color or multiple)

* popped popcorn

* pretzels

* chocolate candies

* peanuts

* wax paper

There are no wrong or right measurements for this recipe. Add as little or as much as you’d like!


The directions are pretty simple. If you are using fresh popped popcorn, make your batch and let it cool for a few minutes. I sifted through to make sure I got most (and hopefully all) of my old maids.

If using multiple colors of melting chocolate, separate your popcorn into it’s own bowl for each color. Because I used 3 colors, I had 3 bowls.

Grab a handful of pretzels and “crunch” them up in your hand before adding.

Grab a handful or two of peanuts and add them.

Pour in your chocolate candies (we used M&Ms but you could use Reese’s Pieces or any chocolate candy really).

Melt the chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl (glass works great) for 30 seconds at a time. Mix and repeat until fully melted.

Pour a little melted chocolate over your popcorn mixture and then “toss” to cover. Continue to add until you have the coverage you desire. (We try not to overcoat so as to not overpower the mix with sweet flavor.)

Pour each onto wax paper and allow to cool.

Our mixture is made of pink, blue and orange.




Do you like the sweet salty mixture? Would you add anything different?

    This is so cute and a wonderful dessert to make for Easter. I like how it looks and how easy it is to make. I would like to make this with my niece next week when she visits. I like the Sweet and Salty flavors together.

    I only like salty so I wouldn’t make this one for myself . It’s really pretty and would be good to take to a friend’s.

    This looks really good. We are big popcorn eaters in this house too and I think this is going to go over really well with the kids. I never even thought of making something like this. Thanks for the great review.

    I love this recipe and the grandkids are going to love helping me make it. It’s something fun we can do together.

    I love the colors. This would be great for my girls to make.

  9. This is so pretty. Too bad I don’t have small ones at home anymore, and I am trying to avoid sweets when I can. Plus, I don’t think DH would like candy covered popcorn. lol

    That’s fun with the different colors of bunches of stuff. I’d go light on the chocolate since I like more salty than sweet.
