were you a carrot fan when you were
first introduced to them?
i don't remember myself,
and if they are good for the eyes,
then i certainly should've eaten a ton
of them cuz without my glasses
i am pretty much blind. lol
here's a kind of carrot that i think
most folks and all kids are gonna like.
mini pretzel dipper sticks in carrot containers. hehe
let's check out how to make these carrot cuties.
first you'll need these kinda pretzels that can be found at walmart.
and some orange and green candy melts.
ok here we go.
ok so i got the carrot containers
from my fave oriental trading company and it looks like eeek! they are sold out but
keep an eye out for them cuz they may come back!
you can get these instead and i bet they
would be cute too cuz they are see thru.
anyway, the dipper sticks are the perfect size for the carrot containers i have.
so let's move on:
draw some eyes to match your candy eyes.
who knew a toothpick could be so helpful.
now you need a knife to make details.
just carve out a smile and carrot detail
lines once the entire carrot is dry.
and there you have made a vegetable outta a pretzel.
now we just need a home for our carrots.
hey this smiling guy looks available.
there ya go.
make a bunch and pass it out
to your sweeties telling them
"don't forget to eat your veggies cuz
i carrot a lot about you!"
i bet they'll ask for seconds!
but for now, the carrots will hide til
the easter bunny hunts them down, or better yet,
til you get 'em!
