Easter Treats

I made a little treat to give to Jack's teachers at daycare for Easter--bunny bait! It is white chocolate covered popcorn with pieces of pretzels, m&m's and sprinkles. The popcorn is addicting and something that I always make at Christmas.

Bunny Bait
1. Pop a bag of popcorn per instructions on the bag.
2. Melt two squares of white almond bark.
3. Put popcorn & pretzel pieces in a gallon sized ziploc bag.
4. Pour melted almond bark over the popcorn, close the bag and shake.
5. Spread popcorn on top of a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
6. Immediately sprinkle on m&m's and sprinkles.
7. Let the almond bark harden for a few minutes and then package the popcorn mixture.

I forgot to add the pretzel pieces to my ziploc bag, so I just sprinkled them on top. I would recommend adding them to the bag, so they get a coating of almond bark.

I discovered a great way to attach tags to packages. (I have a tiny hole punch from Hobby Lobby that surprisingly, I use quite a bit. I should invest in a circle punch out next! It is hard to cut out circles.)
I bought clear hair bands at Wal-Mart and attached them to my tags like this:

Then I simply placed them around the top of my clear bags, which I had secured with another clear band. I simply tied my ribbon around the bag and it made the tag lay exactly as it should. So simple!

If anyone is interested in the circles, you can download a printable pdf here. It won't contain the from or name, but would still be cute! I had a hard time finding something in boy colors, so I decided to make my own.

  1. Bunny bait is the best! I will use ANY holiday as an excuse to make that stuff. I give away as much as possible but I'm always left with a ton of leftovers, which of course I eat. I think that's why I make it in the first place. :)

    What a genius idea to attach the tags with a hair tie! Your tags are beautiful!
