I wanted to mention this super easy little Easter snack idea for kiddos. It is incredibly simple to do and my children loved these things. We took them to an Easter party last week at school and I tucked a few extras away for their Easter baskets. I think these would be a really fun party favor if you have little ones coming over for Easter this year.
I have seen these made a bunch of times and some people use Cheetos, some use Goldfish crackers, some use orange jelly beans.
I actually intended on using Annie’s crackers which are shaped like bunnies, but I ordered white cheddar by mistake and the color was off.
So Target to the rescue and I found little chick shaped Market Pantry brand crackers for $1.47 per box.
They worked out perfectly and I got about 5 large carrots from each box.
These really couldn’t be simpler but here are the directions:
- Use a cake frosting piping bag from a craft supply store (Tip: I bought Wilton brand bags and they have giant logos on the front so try to avoid those.)
- Fill the bag to the level you prefer- I made fairly good size carrots so I got about 5-6 carrots per package of crackers.
- Tie green ribbon around the top to resemble the stem.
I also tied a little bunny tag on the ribbon and my preschooler signed Happy Easter, Love Maya on the backside of each carrot. The bunnies I used were actually a pad of Post It notes from the Dollar Spot at Target.
- $6.99 for 50 pack of piping bags (used 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon) $4.19
- 4 boxes of Market Pantry Crackers $1.47 each= $5.88
- Glitter Ribbon $4.99 (40% off sale at Michael’s)= $2.99
- Bunny Post It Pad $1.00
- Grand Total for 20 bags was $14.06 or .70 each
I actually needed the piping bags so I could have grabbed a smaller package to keep the cost down. I also made generous carrots because I wanted to cover up that silly Wilton logo- so you can certainly make smaller ones and cut the cost down.
