    My friend, Shelly, made cute carrots like these years ago and I have never forgotten them. Such a simple treat. The bag is a disposable cake decorating bag. Not all brands of these bags are created equal so make sure you are buying clear ones. Fill the bag with cheese curls, puffs or balls and then tie with green ribbon.


    I am off for a few days with my husband. See you next week!

      I am having a hard time finding these bags. All the ones I come across are super huge and have a big purple wilton label on them. Where can I find the clear ones????

        You can buy clear cone bags at Sweet Baking Supply. Disposable cake decorating bags can also be used. These can be found at your local craft supply store like Michael's or from

      This is an adorable presentation. Hard to find anyone who doesn't love Cheetos (except for my mom!). That would be a great little gift for anyone. Thanks for sharing your idea.

      Thanks for the idea and the inspiration! We made these with Goldfish crackers and added gift tags. Thanks!

      See here:

      Question - is there any alternative to the disposable icing bags? Those get pricey! Do any retailers sell cone shaped celo bags?

      Thanks again for the idea!

      Very clever! And unfortunately probably more liked by kids than real carrots!

      I have a girl that loves cheesies. I hate the mess they make, but I'll happily make her this cute (sugar free) Easter treat.
