Bunny Bites Snack Mix

When Little Devil was a toddler we left fresh carrots on the porch for the Easter Bunny before we went to bed.  When we awoke on Sunday morning, he had always taken big buck-tooth bunny bites out of them, and filled our empty baskets with treats.  Now everyone is grown.  We put the carrots in our salads and they aren't always here to get their baskets filled.  But, that doesn't mean they don't get some kind of treat.  I've seen all kinds of things from hot cocoa mix to play-dough put into these disposable icing bags.  They are the consummate carrot shape and demand to be filled with something fun.  (Even more fun than icing!)   I always have a holiday treat for my BFFs and the Grandparents too, and you can't exactly leave a chocolate bunny on a porch in Oklahoma in April, because he'll either blow away or melt.  By this time every one has had their fill of Cadbury Eggs, and are craving something salty anyway.  So I came up with Bunny Bites, which is a savory, taco-seasoned snack mix.  I used the Annie's Cheddar Bunnies snack crackers, which are like gold fish, only bunny shaped.  How cute is that?  You don't even have to bake this mix.  Just shake everything together in a paper bag, let it dry and fill your icing bags.  Tie at the top with a green ribbon and you're ready to go.  I've even included a free printable for the tags.  Simply print and cut them out and you've got an Egg-cellent treat that is Easter Bunny worthy!
