Cheese Doodle Carrots ~ Fun Easter Treat for the Kids
I saw this idea out in the Blogosphere and I had to make some for the kids for Easter. So I created them early so I could show you all how cute they would be and they are so CUTE !! So much better than all those Jelly Beans – the less Candy the better. Ok I know Cheese Doodles are not the healthiest of foods either, but I say they are better than all that sugar right?
Seriously are they Cute or what?
These make great Easter Party Favors, Classroom Treats or just a fun treat for the kids on Easter like I am going to use them for.
So here is what I used to create my Cheese Doodle Carrots:
- Cheese Doodles of course – I used the Crunchy Ones (Yummy)
- Clear Coned Shaped Bags or you can use Clear Plastic Icing Bags – I found my Cone Bags at Hobby Lobby
- For the Leaves I used Green Pom Poms (explained below)
- Rubber Bands
- Twist Ties
So here’s my loot. I have my Crunchy Cheese Doodles, Cone Shaped Bags (Large) and Green Pom Poms. Originally I was going to use Green Crepe Paper for the Leaves, BUT I was shopping with my Sista Peep who found these Green Pom Poms in the clearance section ($1.79) – SCORE !! They were perfect. Now I had 4 Cheese Doodle Carrots to make – I had 2 bags of Cheese Doodles which pretty much filled 4 Large Cone Bags. The 2 Poms Poms I cut up into 4 Sections for them. If you cannot find those you can use Green Crepe Paper, Green Tissue Paper etc…
So I started with adding one Cheese Doodle into the bag so I could get it down to the point. Then I filled that bag up, I snuck a Doodle or Two while doing so – Ok I confess more like a handful. Next I took a Pom Pom and put a Rubber Band around where I would be cutting to secure it so I would not have it all over the place. Then I cut it about an inch below the Rubber Band. It was like cutting a big Green pony tail. Then I took that and stuck into the top of the Cone Bag with the Cheese Doodles in it. Then Taking a Twist Tie I just wrapped it around and secured the top all together and a Cheese Doodle Carrot was born. How EASY is that?
They will great on the table this Easter, which I get to host this year, and I know the kids will love them.
Really these are so EASY to make and some other fun fillers ideas – Cheddar Goldfish and even Baby Carrots to create your Carrot – now that is Healthy !!
