Carrots anyone?


Carrots anyone?

The other day I was visiting one of my favorite sites called Skip To My Lou at http://www.skiptomylou.org/ when I noticed a posted Easter craft that had to do with carrots. I'm sure you have all seen the carrots you can get in the stores that are filled with orange Reese's Pieces. I have always thought they were just darling. Well, in this post a clear frosting pipe bag was filled with Cheese Puffs, then sealed with a twist, and tied with a pretty green ribbon. I thought it was such a great idea that I headed over to my local pastry supply store to see if they had some of these types of bags available there. In addition to the clear bags I found two toned bags. The bags were clear at the bottom and green at the top. They came ten bags to a package. When I thought about what to fill them with I knew I wanted to use a variety of things with different textures and color. I decided to fill my bags with cheddar cheese popcorn, Kix cereal, and those little cheddar cheese fish crackers that children seem to love so much. I also decided to wrap my carrots with two different shades of green ribbon instead of one. They were really easy to make.











All I have to do now is decide if I would like to use these little treats as party favors or perhaps put them in a basket on our large serving table for Easter.











I don't think these carrots would have to be limited to an Easter theme either. I think they would look lovely served at a garden party or spring inspired tea depending upon what it was you decided to fill them with. I think our grands and great grand will like them. It's a perfect portioned treat for a day off school on Easter break.
Thank you Skip to My Lou for this fun and charming idea.


I hope all of you have a beautiful and sunny day ♥
Happy Monday everyone!!!
With warmest regards, Carol

Just a little something from Judy said...

I have clear little bags like these. I love this idea, and I am going to use these as favors on Sunday. Thank you so much! Their mother prefers that they don't eat too much candy, so this will work. Great idea!

I love that idea especially for a Spring tea party favor or Easter luncheon favor. I must remember that! And I love the two toned bags you found too. If I don't see you again I hope you have a very happy Easter. Love Charlie's hats!
