Do you believe this Friday is Good Friday?
I thought I had at least another week before Easter? Fortunately the girls reminded me that the Easter Bunny would be arriving sooner than I had planned for – just in time too, because our local Walmart sells out of Easter chocolate the week leading up to the big day. Literally, sells out!
So I hit the shops this weekend and stocked up so I could get a jump start on Easter treats for the classroom.
This is an easy treat, and takes far less time than baking cupcakes or cookies, plus it’s so cute and a nice break from the chocolate overload.
These are the girls Easy cheesy carrots:
You will need
- cheesies or cheetos (I like cheetos because they aren’t quite as fragile)
- plastic icing bags
- twist ties
- green ribbon and tags if you wish.
There’s not much to this really, I stocked up on the cheetos at the bulk barn – I got these three giant bags full for $28.
We found out that each bag filled 13 carrots (icing bags).
All you do is stuff.
Then add a twist-tie to close.
You can add a green ribbon and/or gift tags if you have the time/energy. It makes them look better, but we’re talking about 7 and 8 year olds here, so I didn’t do every single carrot.
Those three bags made 40 carrots, so $28 for the cheetos, and another $14 for the icing bags (50 pack) and you’re looking approximately $1 per treat, and the total time it took me to assemble 40 was about 20 minutes.
Hopefully the kids like them?
Check that, hopefully they don’t – I love Cheetos!
Have a great one!
