Easter Bunny Chow

My Easter version of Puppy Chow or Muddy Buddies - using Angel Food cake mix and Cadbury Chocolate Eggs


  • 4 cups Rice Chex
  • 1 cup pink candy disc melts can substitute white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Angel Food cake mix can substitute white cake mix
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 happy cup coconut I dyed mine green by putting coconut in a ziplock bag with2-3 drops of green food coloring and tossing to coat
  • 1/2-1 cup Cadbury milk chocolate mini eggs Add as many or as little as you like


  • Measure Rice Chex into a large bowl.
  • Measure pink candy disc melts or white chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and microwave carefully until melted. I put mine in for 45 seconds at a time, stirring in between until melted.
  • Pour melted candy over cereal and stir to coat good.
  • Mix angel food cake mix and powdered sugar together, add to coated cereal.
    I have a large covered plastic container I use and simply mix the cereal and candy coating in it, put in the cake mix and powered sugar - put lid on and gently shake to coat.
    You can also use a very large ziplock bag.
  • Now add coconut and mini eggs and stir carefully, store in an airtight container.
  • SERVE or eat secretly by yourself while crouched behind the kitchen cabinets!


This recipe is so easy to customize - if your people don't like coconut, don't add it. Feel free to add some Easter Sprinkles to this!  Angel Food cake mix has a slight kick to it just like Angel Food Cake - feel free to substitute white cake mix if you want!
