Peanutty Popcorn Bunny Munchies – I love making these sorts of fun edible “crafts” with my kids. Peanutty popcorn bunny munchies is a seasonal treat that we really look forward to making. Being a Mom with young children, I make a special effort to enjoy every opportunity that comes my way, to create memories with my family. Making seasonal munchies is always exciting for children.
This bunny munch is terrific to pack-up in goodie bags and give to family, friends, neighbors or special teachers, just to show them how much you appreciate them. Tie with a colorful ribbon and share it with a hug, it’s sure to brighten their day. That is, if your little helpers don’t gobble it all up first.
