Easter Bunny Chow Tips:
- Any Chex cereal works great in this recipe; if you prefer Rice or Wheat Chex or a combination of Corn, Rice and/or Wheat Chex – go for it! By default’ I use Corn Chex but I definitely recommend using your personal favorite.
- Similar to most like-recipes the white chocolate chips can be replaced with candy melts.
- The bigger the mixing bowl the better! When it comes to gently folding together the cereal with the melted mixture I recommend using the biggest mixing bowl that you can find.
- To make your Easter Bunny Chow peanut-free replace the Creamy Peanut Butter with an additional 4 ounces of White Chocolate Chips.
- Use a gallon size Ziploc bag or larger to mix the coated Chex cereal with the powdered sugar; it’s best to mix in half of the sugar and cereal then gently shake before adding the remainder of the cereal and sugar to the Ziploc bag.
- Your festive spring snack does not have to be refrigerated; however, you should store your Easter Bunny Chow in an airtight container; think Ziploc bag, Rubbermaid container with a tight lid or mason jar.
- Share this sweet snack with neighbors, classmates and friends by placing a scoop of this spring snack in a clear treat bag tied with a festive ribbon.
