An Easter snack mix recipe that is a perfect treat for any Easter gathering — and would also be a great surprise inside Easter eggs!
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 include with these cute little bunny crackers for an Easter snack mix. So many possibilities!
Start with chocolate eggs (use your favorite kind, pastel M&Ms would work, too) and pistachios for a little spring green color as well as added nutrition. Because the bunnies need something to snack on too, I slice dried apricots into long strips to look like carrots. Toss it all together and it’s an irresistible snack that’s ready in less than five minutes.
The sliced apricots 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. 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. Then those bunnies will be nice and crunchy like they should be.
Enjoy! Happy Easter!
- 7 ounce package Annie's Homegrown Bunny Graham Friends, about 3 cups

- 1 cup Milk Chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs
- 1 cup dried apricots
- Cut apricots into thin slices to resemble carrots.

- If preparing ahead, the Bunny Grahams may soften slightly. You may want to add them just prior to serving. Alternatively, wait to add the apricots, which cause the bunnies to soften.
