Easter Basket Veggies

Here is another easter basket "candy-alternative" idea. I saw some jelly bean "carrots" for sale at a local grocery store here in NYC, and thought I could create something just as cute- but easier on my wallet, and my children's blood sugar :).

To make these you will need:

  • Annie's Organic Cheddar Bunnies (or you could use Goldfish if you don't have an organic market nearby, definitely not as festive though:)

  • Disposable Frosting Bags -you can buy these at most craft stores

  • Green Ribbon - for your carrot "foliage"
Just pour the crackers into the frosting bags and tie them off with the ribbon. I had to crush a few of the bunny crackers near the carrot tip to make them fit all of the way down to the point of the carrot. If you have any other Easter ideas/traditions you would like to share, leave a comment with this post!
