  • Grab your chocolate melts and pour about 1 dozen into your small glass bowl
  • Microwave them for 1 minute and stir until smooth – this will be used to glue the leaves onto the rice Krispies carrot
  • cut  50 of them in half  to make your leaves

*NOTE: If the rice Krispies carrots are still warm, they will probably be pliable enough to skip this step. If they have cooled enough and hardened, you’ll need to use a knife or skewer to poke a few holes in the top of the carrot for the leaves to go in. 

  • poke or cut 3 slices across the top of the triangle pieces (the leaves should be pretty close together)
  • you can also mold the top by curving it a little with your hands

  • dip a corner of the chocolate halves into the melted green chocolate and place them with the flat side facing down toward the counter, into the slits on the carrots
  • *I like to start with the middle leaf and place the other two directly one either side – fanning out like a V with a line in the middle
  • you’ll want to leave the carrots alone for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to harden before moving them

  • store finished carrots at room temperature in an airtight container for up to a few days

That’s it! 

Happy Easter!
