Mini carrots the perfect kids party (or Easter) treat

I remember my mom making these delicious ‘fruit’ and ‘veggies’ at every birthday party that my sister and I had when we were young. We absolutely LOVED them. I thought that I might be the perfect time to share this family secret recipe with the world! Can’t wait to share the full party with you later this month.
