5 Minute Easter Snack Mix

Snack mixes are the easiest way to feed a crowd for any gathering. My kids love this Easter snack mix because of the little bunny snickerdoodle cookies in it and the candy. I love this snack mix because it comes together in 5 minutes and makes everyone happy!

This is a sweet snack mix with loads of spring colors. It is quick and tasty and disappears in our house in no time. Try these salty snacks to balance of the sweetness in this snack mix recipe: rosemary parmesan popcorn, BBQ bacon cheese ball, pepperoni pizza dip, or the ranch slow cooker chex mix.

One of my absolute favorite holidays is Easter. I love the decorations, the food, the meaning behind everything, all of it!! As a kid I couldn’t wait to wake up and find Easter eggs hidden all over our house and oh how lucky we were if we got a giant chocolate bunny or those big Cadbury Eggs! 

Now I’ll be honest, I feel sick trying to eat those BIG Cadbury eggs, but man, those mini cadbury eggs that are pure chocolate with a candy shell are irresistible!

What Goes into an Easter Snack Mix?

The beauty of a snack mix is that you can add anything that you want! Around the holidays, it is fun to find ingredients that really bring out the color of whatever holiday it is. This is Easter Snack Mix is all about the beautiful spring pastels:

  • Berry Cherrios
  • Easter Pretzels (you could also make your own with the colors you want)
  • Speckled Malt Eggs (I know a few people who don’t like malt…they are a wrong…but nonetheless, I saw they have speckled peanut Butter M&Ms now which are delicious and will get you the same color)
  • Annie’s Gluten Free Snickerdoodle Bunny Cookies
  • Pastel Candy Corn
  • Easter Caramel M&Ms
  • Mini Marshmallows (I did just white because I already had some at home, but doing the multi-colored pack would be so fun)

Storing Snack Mix

This snack mix recipe can be stored for 4-6 weeks if it is kept in an air tight container.  The mini marshmallows and pretzels will get stale first, so we recommend keeping them separate and adding both them right before serving.  This snack mix can also be frozen in an airtight contain for 4-6 months.  Let it come to room temperature before eating and serving.

Making Snack Mix Ahead of Time

It only takes 5 minutes to throw this together, but this snack mix can be made ahead of time.  If it is stored in an airtight container, it can be made up to a week ahead of time. Again the mini marshmallows and pretzels can get a little tricky, so leave those out until right before serving.

What Should I Make with this Easter Snack Mix?

If you are hosting an Easter gathering and serving up this snack mix, you should definitely have one of our World’s Best Brown Sugar Ham in the oven and our Best Potato Rolls rising. Starting the day with our Empty Tomb Rolls is how we celebrate while also teaching our kids about the meaning of this special holiday. If you aren’t an Empty Tomb Roll fan, then you’ve lost your dang mind, but I’ll forgive you if you make our Soft Hot Cross Buns.

Then with your leftover ham, you should make a batch of both of these super easy and always loved dishes: Spring Ham and Asparagus Lemon Cream Sauce and Cheesy Ham and Potato Bacon Casserole.
