Gluten-Free Easter Trail Treat

Here’s another recipe that is a result of browsing Pinterest. I have posted a lot of great things on my Pinterest Board Easter Traditions¬†and wanted to try a few of them myself. My brother-in-law has Celiac’s disease and therefore eats gluten-free. Sometimes desserts and fun treats are not on his diet. So I wanted to make a version of the Bunny Food treat that was gluten-free. You can add lots of other things to this recipe also–raisins, dried fruit, popcorn…whatever you have that’s gluten-free!

Here’s what I used:

2 cups Rice Chex (gluten-free)
2 cups Corn Chex (gluten-free)
1 cup honey roasted peanuts
1 cup Mini York Peppermint mints
1 cup Mint M&Ms
1 cup Spring mix M&Ms

FINAL STEP – Melt 1 cup white chocolate

Toss all ingredients in a large bowl and then drizzle the melted chocolate over the mixture as you stir. Pour onto a cookie sheet and let it cool. Store in an airtight container. I love to serve this kind of snack in mini pails. I bought a bunch at Target last year after Easter for 50 cents! I use them for my coffee stirrers, snacks, a small stack of napkins and more!

  1. That looks so yummy!

  2. Looks really great! Definitely will try it! Also, great tip on small containers from Target, thanks!

  3. This sounds like something my Celiac daughter would love!! Please keep in mind, If you need this to be truly gluten free, make sure you check the nuts (most are processed on shared equipment with gluten) and the M&Ms. Sometimes Mars will make Mint M&Ms on shared equipment and that is a cross contamination issue. Also check the white chocolate you use, many brands are not gluten free.
    Can’t wait to try this.
