If you need a QUICK and EASY treat idea for Spring or Easter then make sure you save this idea for Peeps Pudding Cups, Planting Carrots In “Oreo” Dirt. My kids were SO EXCITED when they saw these!
You will need
- Pudding Cups
- 1 oreo of every cup (crushed)
- 1 Peep for every cup
- Starbursts (orange)
- Rips Candy (green)
First step is to make the candy carrots. They are MUCH easier to work with when they are warm. I heated up a rice bag in the microwave and set them on it to get them warm. You could microwave them for a few seconds but you need to be VERY careful cause the hot candy can burn you (that is why I went with the rice bag method).
Cut your Starburst in half. Flatten the top of one end and make the other end pointed. On the flattened end add some green Rips, wrap the flattened end around the Rips and then roll the whole thing to form a carrot shape. Crush one Oreo for every pudding cup, I put them in a bag and smash them with a soup can. Open your pudding cups, place a Peep in the middle of the pudding cup. Sprinkle the crushed Oreos around the peep and then add the candy carrots. Simple and easy Easter or Spring time treat that will make your kids smile! Enjoy.
