Easter Bunny Marshmallow Popcorn Bars



These ooey gooey Easter Bunny Marshmallow Popcorn Bars are simple and fun to make and put a festive spin on the traditional rice krispie treats!

Treasured traditions are what keep a family together. Easter is a perfect time to celebrate the joy of family, the beginning of spring and make lasting memories that build on your traditions.

In my home, we have many traditions and Easter is one of my favorite times of the year when we observe some of those traditions. With cute little bunnies, the traditional Easter basket, Easter egg coloring and cooking, I can’t help but love it. As a mother of all boys, I have to keep things interesting. We all know that growing boys love to eat. And man, do they love to eat! So I always try and have an Easter feast for the family which usually includes ham, deviled eggs, homemade mashed potatoes, casseroles, and sweet treats.

Each year, I also try to find a new Easter sweet treat to make. I like to dabble in new recipes every now and then and no matter how old the kids get, they just love sweet treats!

This year, I got a recipe for rice krispie treats bars from a friend and I thought it was perfect to make for Easter. It sounded really yummy but I wanted to give it my own twist and used popcorn instead instead of the rice krispies. Let’s face it, we all love popcorn… and who doesn’t like marshmallows?

How to make Easter Bunny Marshmallow Popcorn Bars

Popcorn + melted marshmallows = a match made in heaven!

This Easter Bunny Marshmallow Popcorn Bars recipe is super easy to make too and only took me about 10 minutes total to prepare and make.  Don’t be fooled by the recipe instructions (it looks long) but really, it’s really simple and quick to make!

I also love how colorful and festive it turned out!

I bought most of my ingredients at my local grocery store but if you shop on Amazon, they have a similar cute Easter and spring themed icing decorations and sprinkles like this Easter Bunny with Carrot Royal Icing, Spring Medley Sprinkles and Pink Candy Melts.

These popcorn bars are best eaten the same day they are made while the popcorn is still fresh and crunchy. If you want to store leftovers,  use an airtight container and store for up to 3 days, although I don’t guarantee the popcorn will stay crunchy.

If you like getting the whole family involved in making sweet treats around the kitchen, this is one great way to do that. The kids will enjoy making these sweet, ooey gooey sweet treats and will make for a great bonding time with the family!

These delicious and festive popcorn dessert bars will wow your guests at your next Easter or spring-themed get together or party! Planning a movie night at home anytime soon? These popcorn bars are  perfect as movie night munchies too!

I hope you enjoy these Easter Bunny Marshmallow Popcorn Bars as much as we do! Come back to this post and comment after you’ve made this recipe yourself.  I would love to see your own creation! 🙂

More Easter Family Traditions

Along with this super fun recipe, I thought I’d share these fun games that you can incorporate into your Easter family traditions:

1. Egg Relay Race: What’s more fun than a little family competition. Divide your family up into teams. Make them balance an egg on a spoon while walking to a point and back. First team to get all their players done wins! My team always wins!

2. Crack the Shell: This game is perfect for boys because well, boys will be boys. Each person gets a hard-boiled egg and pairs with another. They have to each smash their eggs together. The person with the unbroken shell keeps going.

3. Roll an Egg: Roll a hard-boiled egg down a hill and see which one can go the farthest without breaking. The boys still haven’t grasped the whole slow and steady wins the race.
