The Easter Bunny found the perfect treats to stick into your kids Easter Baskets! These Almond M&M Candy Carrots are simple to make and great gifts to hand out to your family!
This past December I created Candy Christmas Lights using colorful Almond M&M’s and green Mike and Ike Candies and they quickly became one of my top ten posts. They were definitely one of the simplest edible crafts I have ever made. When I was brainstorming ideas for Easter, my wonderfully creative exchange student suggested I make carrots like the light bulbs. Brilliant, right?
These tiny little candy carrots can be served in a candy dish or used to decorate cakes and cupcakes. To make my cupcake pictured above, I just topped a frosted cupcake with some cake crumbs and added a few carrots.
I crafted the bunny out of white modeling chocolate using a bento rice mold, just like I created my Caramel Chocolate Fudgy Bears for Valentine’s Day. If you’d like to make one too, you can use the directions for the bear and just swap out white modeling chocolate for the caramel modeling chocolate and use the bunny mold that comes in the set with the bear mold, (directions, here)
Almond M&M and Mike and Ike Candy Carrots
green Mike and Ike Candies
Cut green Mike and Ike candies in half. Use the kitchen shears to cut the green candies so that they look like the greens on top of a carrot. Just make lots of snips all over the candy, leaving the sticky side flat. Press the sticky side of the Mike and Ike up against the more rounded tip of the orange Almond M&M.
That’s it! Now go make some carrots.
Use Wilton’s Picket Fence Cupcake Wrappers to create this cupcake.
