Bunny Bait Funfetti Popcorn

Spring is such a fun, festive season, and that is never more apparent than with treats like this bunny bait.

Between the bright pastel colors, the fun sprinkles, and the tasty sweet and savory combination, what more could you ask for in a snack to celebrate the season?

Well, that is, other than an adorable bunny reference. Because it simply isn’t spring without some bunnies.

And just like it’s impossible to separate bunnies from spring, it’s impossible not to find joy in a big helping of this bunny snack mix. These strawberry popcorn balls and white chocolate popcorn are also a hit during Easter. Plus, this recipe is great for gifting, so you can spread the joy around!

How do you make bunny bait?

Not only is this recipe great for any spring holiday or event, but it’s also easy to make. However, you do need to be quick, so make sure you have all of your ingredients ready.

To make bunny bait, all you need to do is:

  • Prepare the ingredients, such as popping the popcorn and breaking apart the pretzels.
  • Heat the candy melts and pour them over popcorn, M&M’s, and pretzels.
  • Quickly transfer the coated popcorn to a baking sheet, then decorate with sprinkles.
  • If you’d like, drizzle with more colorful candy melts.
  • Let cool.
  • Break apart and enjoy!

What toppings can you add to bunny bait tail mix?

  • Reese’s pieces
  • Small gum drops or gummy bears
  • Candy eggs
  • Nuts (peanuts, walnuts, cashews, etc)

What you will need to make Bunny Bait Funfetti Popcorn:

  • Easter colors of candy melts –  I used blue, bright pink and yellow
  • Easter sprinkles – bunnies,  pink sugar sprinkles , blue sugar sprinkles, spring jimmies
  • Parchment paper for easy work and no fuss clean up.
  • Jelly Roll Pans (baking sheets with sides) – used for everything from cookies to roasting, a good baking pan will last for years.

Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Method Microwave
Servings 20 pieces


  • 2 cups vanilla candy melts, Wilton, Almond Bark or CandiQuik are great
  • 8 cups popped popcorn, about 1/2 cup unpopped
  • 12 ounces pastel M&M’s
  • 1 1/2 cups pretzels, each piece broken in half
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles, any festive style
  • 1 cup colorful candy melts, optional


  • Line a large baking sheet (18 x 13 or similar) with parchment paper, then set nearby.
  • Place popped popcorn in a large mixing bowl, then add M&M’s and pretzels on top.
  • In a medium bowl, heat vanilla candy melts per package instructions until smooth.
  • Pour melted vanilla candy over the popcorn mixture, then use a spatula to quickly (but gently!) toss and stir until the candy melts have coated all of the ingredients. Be careful not to stir too long; you don’t want the candy to harden yet.
  • Transfer coated popcorn mixture to the prepared baking sheet and spread out into an even layer.
  • While candy melts are still wet, sprinkle with festive sprinkles as desired.
  • If you’d like to add more color, heat some colorful candy melts and drizzle them on top of the bunny bait.
  • Let bunny bait dry completely (about 1 hour), then use your hands to gently break it apart into snack-sized pieces.
  • Bunny bait can be stored at room temperature in sealed bags or a container for up to 5 days.

  1. I hate to be so dense, but I can never find your videos. Where is the link?
    Thanks so much for the fun recipe.

  2. Could you use white choc. Chips and melt them instead and add food coloring to them instead of melts? Also are you using buttered popcorn?
