Easter comes early this year – the first Sunday of April. That’s less than 3 weeks away! Time to start planning your Easter menu. And what better Easter icon than carrots? They’re both colorful and delicious. So are our top ten carrot-shaped snacks.

These Easter Bunny “Carrots” from the blog of Loralee Lewis are actually healthy. That’s because Loralee is both a mother and a dentist. She’s filled Wilton’s Disposable 12 inch Decorating Bags with whole-wheat goldfish. Of course, you could use any snack you want . . . orange jelly beans, cheese puffs, whatever your kids like.

Go one step further and plant your “carrots” in a garden for a beautiful presentation. This Carrot Patch from Uncommon Designs would make a beautiful centerpiece for your Easter table.

Speaking of centerpieces, this veggie dip from Totally Tots couldn’t be simpler. They provide a recipe for hummus, but you could use store-bought if you prefer. Just add carrot nubs, parsley, and hungry kids.

Big kids would like this Easter Carrot Cheese Ball from Yummy Healthy Easy. As the name of the blog suggests, the recipe is simple and healthy. Just shape the cheese ball into a carrot and add little parsley for the carrot top. What could be easier?

These Carrot Crescents from Hungry Happenings make perfect vessels for your favorite egg or ham salad. You may have to invest in metal cream horn molds, but the results are worth the investment.

These Veggie Bars from Garnish and Glaze are also made out of crescent rolls. They would be perfect for an Easter brunch.

These Sparkling Surprise Carrot Cupcakes from Hostess With The Mostess couldn’t be cuter. They start with ice cream cones filled with chocolate cake batter. The insides are as pretty as the outsides!
