Baker’s Best! Jane Taylor’s Favorite Recipes: Bunny Bait Crunch Mix

March 20, 2024

Hop to it and prepare this tasty snack mix! It’s colorful and perfect for spring gatherings or just for the fun of it. Bunny Bait Crunch Mix can be packaged in individual treat bags for lunches, hikes, car rides, or party favors.  

Use the cereals in this recipe or add your own favorites. Customize with a variety of M&M colors, depending upon the holiday or occasion. The sweet and salty flavors are a delicious combination.

I have fond memories of my grandmother making the traditional party mix, typically prepared at holiday time during my childhood. Presently, there are so many interesting and fun variations.  

My favorite is the recipe I have included here. Simple to prepare; it’s an irresistible crunchable, munchable treat!
