Cheetos "Carrot" Treats

Note: If you are a room mom for your child's school, you are constantly looking for ways to take cute and creative snacks. Cupcakes and cookies get old... fast. With Easter fast approaching I wanted to take something fun, but filling a cone shaped bag with jelly beans has been done a hundred times. It also can be expensive and the kids tend to throw them away because not a lot of kids like jelly beans. Cheetos are a very cute way to fill cone shaped bags. They are orange. Kids LOVE them and the results are adorable!


Cheetos "Carrot" Treats

Ingredients:
Crunchy Cheetos
Cone Shaped Bags
Twist Ties
Green Ribbon

Directions:
Fill bags 3/4 of the way with Cheetos. Tie off the bag with twist tie. Tie big green ribbon to be the "leaves".

Tell me... could there be a cuter snack for your child's class?
