Bunny Chow

Easy bunny chow candy made with pretzels, oreos, candy and white chocolate

Easy snack here people. I’m talking, almost as easy as my white trash candy, except this has less ingredients. I whipped this up in under 15 minutes. It makes a big bowl full, so if you’re trying to be careful with what you eat, you may not want to leave this on the counter. In front of you. Within reach.

See, I just kept grabbing a piece, all day long. Before I knew it, I probably consumed half a batch of this treat, on my own!

Good thing it is so easy to make, I can whip up a second batch in no time, and no one will be the wiser. However, they may be suspicious when I don’t get off the treadmill this evening!

Bunny Chow


  • 2 cup pretzel sticks, broken
  • 14 Oreo cookies, slightly broken
  • 2 cup milk chocolate M&M candies
  • 16 oz vanilla candy coating
  • 2 Tbsp spring sprinkles


  1. In large bowl, mix together pretzels, Oreos and M&M's.
  2. Melt vanilla candy coating according to package directions. Pour melted chocolate over M&M mixture. Pour bunny chow onto a large piece of parchment paper on countertop. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp spring sprinkles (say that 5 times fast)! Let stand about 10 minutes until hardened. Break into pieces and put in a ziploc bag for storage. Enjoy!

    At first glance (and until I read the ingredients) I thought this had Lucky Charms in it. Will be making this for the kids classes this year.

    I don’t know what vanilla candy coating is? Can someone explain to a1st timer. Would love to make this for my kids. Thank u!!

    @ anonymous- vanilla candy coating is sometimes called vanilla bark at the grocery store. You find it in the same aisle as the chocolate chips, and it’s sold in vanilla or chocolate flavor. If you can’t find it, you can always use white chocolate, however it takes much longer to set, and it has a tendency to melt easier in the hands.
