Easter Snack Mix Recipe

This Easter snack mix recipe will be a perfect treat for any Easter gathering — and would also be a great surprise inside Easter eggs!

Easter Snack Mix

With Easter right around the corner, we’re seeing bunnies and eggs everywhere. And if you’re anything like us, you’re trying to remind our children of what Easter is really about. Hint: It’s not bunnies and eggs.

But bunnies and eggs are fun too. When I saw Annie’s bunnies on the shelves of my grocery store, I knew they were destined for some kind of Easter snack mix recipe. I am, after all, the snack fanatic over at Food Fanatic. I had fun deciding what to pair these cute little bunny crackers with. I went with some chocolate eggs (obvious choice) but threw in some pistachios as well for a little green color as well as some great protein. Then, I sliced dried apricots into long strips to look like carrots. Because the bunnies need something to snack on too, right? Toss it all together and it’s an irresistible snack that’s ready in less than five minutes.

I did notice that slicing the apricots did tend to cause the bunnies to lose a little of their crunch, so if you’re preparing this snack mix in advance, just leave the apricots out until you’re ready to serve. Then those bunnies will be nice and crunchy like they should be. It wasn’t terrible — my husband said he couldn’t even tell but I could tell.  You could even slice the apricots into strips ahead of time but just keep them separate from the bunnies until you serve the snack mix.

This Easter snack mix recipe was originally shared on Food Fanatic but you can also find it here. Enjoy! Happy Easter! If you’re looking for more Easter recipes, I shared 25 Easter Dessert Recipes on Saturday — a great reference if you’re in need of a little inspiration.
