You’ll have to try Peeps Oreo White Chocolate Pretzel Bunny Bait Popcorn for yourself and see what you think. Be careful though, and fair warning: Peeps Oreo White Chocolate Pretzel Bunny Bait Popcorn is downright addictive. It’s the mixture of sweet/salty deliciousness that makes it hard to stop.

Popcorn mixtures like this are so fast and easy to make and go over so well with adults and kids. Make these with your kids and grandkids and have a blast. And if you have a labrador (I think everyone should!) they’ll just clean up any mess! (Watch that chocolate, though!)

Any popcorn mixture like Peeps Oreo White Chocolate Pretzel Bunny Bait Popcorn is easy to customize and I have a few rules of thumb if you want to create your own. Use about 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels (8 cups popped) to one bag (about 12 ounces) of chocolate.

Then add in what you like, a mix of salty & sweet, three to five cups. Larger items like pretzels take up more room in a measuring cup and smaller items, like m&m’s take up less. So if you’re adding in all small items, like m&m’s, use about 3 cups, if you’re using a mix of sizes, about 5 cups. I hope that makes sense!

What you’re looking for a mixture that has some larger clumps and some individual, chocolate coated goodies.

All these ingredients are a bit pricey, except for the popcorn & pretzels, but they are items that come on sale right before Easter. Look for coupons and sales and your coupon matching site (every store has one) is a great place to check for bargains.

Of course, anything Holiday themed goes on sale right after the Holiday, so pick them up for a song if you don’t mind using or baking with the specific colors long after the holiday.

As far as popcorn, to be blunt, the microwave bags are the biggest rip off since those little oatmeal packets. I last bought popcorn, two pounds of kernels for $1.89 (the oil to make that amount runs about 72 cents) and figured it was the equivalent of 36 family-sized bags of microwave popcorn. Enough said.

peeps oreo & white chocolate pretzel bunny bait popcorn

An addictive blend of Peeps Oreos, m&m’s, pretzels & popcorn all melded together with white chocolate for a delicious treat.

  • Author: mollie kirby

Ingredients

  • 8 cups popped popcorn, about 1/4 cup raw kernels cooked as desired
  • salt
  • 2 large handfuls stick pretzels (about 2 cups) lightly crushed
  • 10 Peeps Oreo cookies, cut into small pieces (about 9 pieces per cookie)
  • 1/2 (11.40 ounce) bag Easter m&m’s
  • 1 package white chocolate chips
  • sanding sugar, optional, in colors of pink, lavender, blue

Instructions

Lay the popcorn out on a large or two smaller sheet trays. Sprinkle with a little salt. Strew the pretzels, cookies & m&m’s over the top of the popcorn.

Place the white chocolate chips in a microwave container and microwave for 1 minute. Stir. Replace and microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until most of the chocolate is melted. Err on the side of caution and do not overheat. Continue to stir and the remainder of the chocolate should melt. If not, heat a few seconds longer.

Drizzle and drop over the popcorn mixture. Turn with a spatula, gently mixing, aiming to get the smaller pieces coated.

If desired, sprinkle with sanding sugar, but don’t mix after sprinkling or it won’t show up on the finished popcorn.

After it cools, use a thin spatula to release the mixture from the bottom of the pan and then with clean hands, break into small, bite-sized clumps.

Notes

This recipe does not need to be exact, mix to your taste!

  1. What a perfect snack! I can’t believe I have never mixed popcorns with anything else, this makes so much yummy sense! 🙂

    1. I made my first last year, I don’t know why, and now there’s no going back! Well, for special occasions, at least!

    1. Thanks, Debbie. The name? Might be a little long, lol!! But isn’t Bunny Bait fun? No credit to me, though.

  2. I think I’m addicted already and I haven’t even had a taste! I love these kind of snack mixes too, they just keep drawing you back in for one more bite long after you promised you were done. I can’t wait to make this!

    1. That’s so true – I think it’s because you’re always going for what looks like the next best bite!! 🙂

    1. Hi, sorry to reply so late! I missed your comment! 🙂 Maybe you’ll pin for next year, tho, or make them out of regular old oreas. Btw…HOW many kinds of oreos are there these days, lol!!

    1. Hi Sheryl, I think they’re becoming kind of a thing for me…funny thing is, I’m not wild about most snacky food. Oreos and pretzels kind of leave me cold and I could give or take popcorn. But all combined, it’s a whole different story!! 🙂

Hearing from you makes my day! Comment below.
