The kids get baskets full of candy, but what about the adults? When Easter dinner is over and the kid’s are snacking away on their big chocolate Easter Bunnies, their Cadbury Eggs and all the other fun treats they got in their basket it’s time to deter the adults from trying to sneak stuff out of the kid’s baskets! I love to whip up a big batch of this Easter Snack Mix. It’s perfect to grab a handful and get a taste of the salty-sweet combo.
What I love most is that this is super easy to make. When I say EASY, it really couldn’t be easier or take less time–about 5 minutes and there are only 5 ingredients. If you are capable of opening a few bags and running the microwave, then this is just your speed!
Just grab a big bowl, dump all of the ingredients in, melt the chocolate and pour the chocolate over the ingredients, mix and stir. Actually, this is such a simple recipe you can even have your kids make it!
This is also a fun snack that we have used for our Acts of Kindness Challenge. I love to use some super cute Easter treat bags to bring to neighbors for a small gift or I send some home with our guests that came to our Easter Celebration!
