Bunny Munch Mix

I am always inspired by the awesome recipes Tina shares at 
Mommy's Kitchen.

I so love quick and simple recipes like this one, but decided to adapt her recipe...
by adding pretzels & peanuts to make it more like my White Christmas Mix. 

How can you possibly go wrong having a sweet & salty dish for everyone to nibble on, in between chocolate eggs?  {wink}

This is basically a guideline - you can add or subtract anything you'd like...but if you just stick close to having 6 - 7 cups of 'filler' to the white chocolate, it should be just fine. 

This recipe is what I used...be sure to check out Tina's recipe at the link above for an simpler popcorn dish.



BUNNY MUNCH MIX 

4 c. popped popcorn, kernels removed
(a 1 - 3 oz. bag microwave popcorn = about 6 c. popped corn)
1 (6 ozs) box Baker's White Chocolate Baking Bars OR
6 ozs. white chocolate chips 
1 c. salted peanuts
1-1/2 c. pretzel sticks
Easter M & M's, plain or peanut


Place popcorn in large bowl; add peanuts and pretzels; mix. Set aside.


In small bowl, melt white chocolate according to directions, being sure to heat over low so it doesn't burn. When melted and smooth, pour over popcorn mixture, mixing well to coat all the popcorn/cereal mix. Can add M & M's now or when the popcorn mixture has dried.

Spread on waxed paper. Break into pieces when dry. Place in holiday bowl to serve or bag into individual treat bags.
