Spring Carrot Gardens Made from Cereal Treats

The 60-70 degree weather on the East Coast is definitely putting me in the mood do some gardening.  Every spring we re-plant an herb garden and have been trying some vegetables here and there.  Last year we grew edamame and jalapeños.  The jalapeño plant went nuts and since you can only eat so many of them I usually left random care packages of Sugar Swings treats and jalapeños with friends.  Not odd at all right??  This year we will be trying to grow our own heirloom tomatoes so wish me luck!  I haven't tried growing carrots yet, but I think I might want to try planting some rainbow ones.  I used them awhile back to make some carrot cupcakes and I love the colors.  Aren't they so pretty?! 

Until I can grow my own real ones, I made an all edible carrot garden from cereal treats.  You can tint the cereal/marshmallow mix orange and shape like carrots or slice into the "garden" to see them "growing" inside.  

I wasn't so sure how this one would come out but I think you can see the carrot shapes in the cocoa krispies "dirt" for a different twist on the surprise inside treat.  Check out the details on how to make the carrot garden here at sheknows!

Thanks for stopping by and definitely get out to enjoy the weather!
