Take a store-bought treat and turn it into your own creation! These Reese's Peanut Butter Carrots will have your little bunnies dying for more of these treats in their Easter baskets!
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.
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.
Reese's White Peanut Butter Eggs
Orange spray food coloring (I used Wilton Color Mist)
green confectionery coating/Candy Melts
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 the egg, then spray it again. You'll now have nice coverage.
Allow the eggs to dry for about an hour.
Melt some green candy coating, pour it into a squeeze-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 an orange Reese's Cup egg on top of the green stem.
Freeze for 2-3 minutes, and you're done.
