Easter Candy: Bunny Tail Mix

Spring is just around the corner and I am just too stinkin’ excited!  Spring brings in all the gorgeous colors and it also gives me the opportunity to make our favorite Easter Candy, Bunny Tail Mix.  It is a combination of a sweet and salty that you’ll end up eating by the handful!  It’s also one of my favorite treats to package in a cute way.  Last year I made Bunny Tail Mix Push Pops that came with a free printable.  This year I went a little bigger!

Easter Candy: Bunny Tail Mix

Easter Candy Bunny Tail Mix
I found these absolutely adorable bunny tails in the dollar section at Target and just couldn’t resist them.  They are on an alligator clip so it makes them so easy to attach to just about anything.  I decided that it was only appropriate to create a mason jar bunny filled with Bunny Tail Mix.

The ears are made from white and pink foam that I cut out according to the size that I thought was appropriate to stand up over the edge of the mason jar.  The white portion of the ears are about 6″ tall and the pink is 4″.  I then attached the pink within the white of the ears using glue.  Simple and easy here.  I used tulle to tie the ears onto the mason jar.  I easily could have glued the ears to the top of the mason jar, but I like being able to use mason jars over again.

The finishing touch was attaching the bunny tail, which was a cinch because of the alligator clip.  I simply attached it to the tulle in the back.  How cute right?!

  2. Jenny,

    What a great idea to decorate a jar for Easter. It is really cute. Anyone would love getting goodies in this jar.

    Have a great FRIDAY!

    I pinned it.

  3. Why can’t I find the recipe?? Why are they always so hard to find?

    • Lila,
      I’m sorry about the confusion. Down at the very bottom of the post, right after the last picture there are the words, “You can grab the recipe for the Bunny Tail Mix as well as the free printable tags here.” The word here is highlighted in pink because you have to click on it to get the recipe and the free tags. This is an update to the recipe from last year. I just showed a new way to package it this year so I didn’t want to be redundant for my readers. Let me know if you run into any issues.

  4. I am on page one and it tells me:
    You can grab the recipe for the Bunny Tail Mix as well as the free printable tags here
    The “here” is pink and highlighted so I click on that and there is no recipe there either and tells me to click to continue. This is crazy or I am crazy because everyone else must see a recipe. I do not want bunny pops or whatever they are.

  5. This looks so fun and yummy, Jenny, and is featured tonight at our Best Of The Weekend Party! Have a great weekend! :)

  6. This looks great! Definitely need to make up a batch and I LOVE that bunny tail!! I need to see if our Target has any left :)
