Bunny mix

Since we are hosting Easter for the first time ever, the Little Guy and I decided to make favors for our guests.

Okay, I decided to make favors.  The Little Guy is just along for the ride.

I thought doing a bunny trail mix would be great for all ages coming to dinner on Saturday.  Ingredients included Kashi Heart-to-Heart cereal (honey flavor), raisins, Easter M&Ms, cheddar Chickadees (Market Pantry brand from Target) and chocolate bunnies that I made with a Wilton mold.  I had thought about including pretzels, but decided against it at the last minute.

Everything but the chocolate bunnies was mixed together.  You can see that the Little Guy really enjoys those M&Ms.  The bunnies were added 2-3 at a time to each bag to ensure even distribution. 

The Little Guy scooped up the mixture and poured it into the bags.  This was a fun afternoon for us!

Here's the finished product:

The treat bags are in the shape of carrots (these are from Wilton, I believe).  Isn't that too cute? 

Happy Easter, everyone!
