Clever "Carrot" Snacks for Easter
Want festive snacks for Easter? Package orange foods to look like carrots for a cute, easy solution.
If Easter is sneaking up on you like it is for me, you might be struggling to come up with Easter snacks to bring to events you're attending or hosting. If you’re short on time, don’t stress over trying to perfect your fondant icing skills to make intricate cupcakes or dyeing dozens of eggs. Instead, throw together these easy no-prep snacks in packaging that looks like carrots - festive and easy! These snacks are also great to pack in your kids' lunches, bring to a church picnic or gift in Easter baskets.
First gather the supplies. You’ll need triangular shaped treat bags, which you can buy at your local craft store, green and orange tissue paper, green and white string and any and all orange foods.
We rounded up four healthy and four not-so-healthy orange foods to get you started. From left to right, we used bell peppers, baby carrots, clementines, cheddar cheese sticks, gummy candies and goldfish crackers, crunchy cheese snacks and chocolate pieces, which you can find in the cake decorating section of most craft stores.
Next, fill the treat bags with the snacks, leaving about one inch of space at the top. If you're using clementines or any larger snacks, fill in empty holes with orange tissue paper.
Top the bags off with about 1/4 of a sheet of green tissue paper. Gather the end of the treat bag around the tissue paper. Using the green and white string, tie a bow to secure the bag and paper. As a final touch, cut the ends of the tissue paper into strips, creating a fringe effect.
After you've packaged the snacks, leave the non-perishable ones in a decorative tray or bowl where they can double as a centerpiece for a table. Enjoy!
