This craft is fun and easy to make. In between snacking on the tasty ingredients and finishing the Circus Peanut Carrots, you will have fun crafting these. The craft is an enjoyable way for kids to see one shape and mold it into something else. Using bulk Easter candy from Spangler, you can make as many of these carrots as you want.

Whether in the classroom or at home, the Easter Bunny loves carrots, so make sure to leave him some of these marshmallow carrots for a sweeter treat. These are great to decorate your table, eat by themselves, or to use as a carrot cake cupcake topper. The little marshmallow carrots are a festive, and quick way to jazz up your holiday this season.

Circus Peanuts Candy Carrots

How to make it

  1. Unwrap Circus Peanuts and lay them out.
  2. Squeeze one end of the Circus Peanut; do so until your marshmallow candy comes to a point.
  3. Take toothpick and drag across the top of the circus peanut in a horizontal manner. You can alternate between short lines and longer lines.
  4. When you finish making creases in your marshmallows, mimicking the lines of a real carrot, you are ready to insert the licorice 'carrot tops'.
  5. There are two types of licorice, pull and peel the will automatically be the size you need, however the more readily available type is standard. For this kind, you can make a slit following one of the lines. Cut along each rivet in order to make skinny slivers of licorice.
  6. Take each strip of licorice and cut in half.
  7. Next, use a toothpick to poke a hole in the top of the carrot about half an inch deep (opposite the pointed end).
  8. You may need to make two holes consecutively in order to fit the licorice. Take two-three pieces of licorice and insert the ends into the hole.
  9. Make sure to push them in as far as you can. You can leave the licorice carrot tops longer, or trim them to your liking.
  10. To keep the 'carrots' fresh, you can put them in an airtight container, or plastic zipper bag.

We recommend placing these in Easter baskets, as snacks on the table, and best yet, on top of carrot cake cupcakes!
