Bunny Munch ~ Sweet & Salty Snack Mix Loaded with Popcorn, M&Ms, Pretzels and Peanut then coated in a Vanilla Candy Coating!
I’m kind of a popcorn freak. I could eat it every day and never tire of it. Much to my dismay my hubs does not share this love. He might eat a couple handfuls but that’s about it and usually he skips it all together. For some reason I don’t make it very often because of this. It’s not like it’s hard to make so I’m sure why this has been my motto.
When I was making the popcorn for this amazing treat Miss K was of course “assisting” me. As the popcorn started to pop she got super excited, clapping her hands and yelling YAY! My exact feelings about popcorn too. Then as it go louder she quickly went to making a “Shhhing” motion with her finger and yelling at the popcorn. I was about dying laughing!
Last night she dug the popcorn kernels out of the cupboards and brought them over to the living room asking for popcorn. This little girl is smart! So we made popcorn and snacked on it and m heart was full!
I’m a bit of a sucker for snack mixes as they are so simple and easy plus delicious. My Mom and little brother happened to be over after I made this snack and my Mom kept going back to the bowl to grab a few more pieces and raving about it.
My little brother shows up and opens the bowl and tries it out. In his words, “Julie it’s like Crack. I don’t even like snack mixes usually, but this one I love.” Pretty much sums up the amazingness of this!
I’ve also been told by these two that whenever they come over they wait to raid my fridge and freezer to see if I made something yummy lately for the blog. I had to giggle at that one!
