Reese’s Peanut Butter Carrots

I don’t know why I love turning desserts into carrots at Easter.

Oh, who am I kidding, I just love dessert and even though I eat carrots almost every single day, I often dream, as I’m munching on them, that they are cheesecake or chocolate instead.

Today I’m transforming Reese’s White Peanut Butter Fudge Eggs into carrots. 

 
Why you ask?
 
Why not?
 
When I saw them at the store I knew I had to make something fun using them and when I opened the package and saw the long skinny eggs, I envisioned them orange and with carrot tops. 

Didn’t you?

Reese’s White Peanut Butter Carrots

You’ll need:

Reese’s White Peanut Butter Eggs
Orange spray food coloring (I used Wilton Color Mist)
green confectionery coating/Candy Melts

Instructions:

how to make Reese's Peanut Butter Carrots

Spray several coats of orange food coloring spray over the eggs, allowing each coat to dry before spraying the next. If the eggs get splotchy, take a paper towel and rub it over of the egg, then spray it again. You’ll now have a nice coverage. Allow the eggs to dry for about an hour. 
 
Melt some green candy coating, pour it into a sqeeze-it mold painter or small zip top bag with the tip cut off, and pipe some carrot tops onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Set a now orange Reese’s egg on top of the green stem. Freeze for 2-3 minutes, and you’re done.
