This fun recipe for Easter is sure to be a treat for any age. You can see how bright it is, which is perfect for any festive spring gathering you may be hosting or a treat to brighten your neighbor’s day. With just a few ingredients and in under an hour, you can make this bunny chow.
Easter bunny chow is something that I had been eyeing over on Pinterest for some time now (if you are not following me over on Pinterest, I’d love for you to come to check out my pins daily by following along here). Not only is it an easy dessert recipe for Easter, but it’s so happy looking! I am excited to share with you my easy Easter bunny chow recipe today, and don’t miss at the end several of my blogger friends sharing their Easter dessert recipes too! They all look amazing.
Again, there are several variations out there of bunny chow, some using dark chocolate while others call for white chocolate (which is what I used). So, this combination of what sounded best to me haha!
Rice Chex Cereal (10 cups)
Mini marshmallows (1 1/2 cups)
White chocolate chips (1 cup)
Powdered sugar (1 1/2 cups)
Pastel colored M & M’s (1 1/2 cups)
Salted Butter (4 TBSP)
Pastel and/or Easter themed Sprinkles (optional)
First you will want to put the butter and white chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl to melt. Mine melted after about 1 1/2 minutes. Stir the mixture.
Next, you measure out your rice cereal and pour it into a large bowl. Take your melted butter and chocolate chip mixture and pour it on top of the cereal. Then stir it all together, making sure the cereal is nicely coated with the mixture.
Afterward, pour coated cereal into a large Ziploc bag (or if you’ve doubled it, you will need two Ziploc bags). Let it cool before the next step.
Once it has completely cooled, you will add your powdered sugar to the bag and zip it uptight. Shake it up until the cereal is covered in the sugar! It looks so springy at this point! Now you can pour it back into your bowl to add the next ingredients.
Then, I added the M&M’s and marshmallows; arent’ they fun?! Again, there are several variations of this, like adding pretzels or using peanut butter too. You can create a mix that sounds most delicious to you!
Give it a nice stir to have it all mixed up evenly. Lastly, the sprinkles are best added when you are ready to serve it (don’t mix them because they’ll get lost at the bottom lol) or if you are placing this into treat bags add it to the mix once in the treat bags.
All complete! Isn’t that a fun and easy Easter recipe to try out this spring? My kiddos loved it as you can see here haha! Now I cannot wait for you to check out these other delicious looking Easter recipes below. I know you are going to love them all.
