Here's a cute Easter snack idea for you.  I made these for my daughter's preschool class last week.  I got the idea from Pinterest, originating from the blog Loralee Lewis.  She used icing decorator bags for hers.  I was going to do the same thing, but I couldn't find bags that didn't have a huge Wilton logo on them.  Does Wilton have a monopoly on decorator bags, because all I could find were Wilton!  So I wasn't sure what I was going to do, when one of my bloggy friends, Debi from Recipes for My Boys, posted a similar idea using quart sized Ziploc bags instead.  It wasn't until I read her post that I realized that the Wilton bags would be way too big anyway.  The quart sized bags would be just perfect and a lot cheaper!  They don't turn out quite as long and skinny as the decorator bags, but hey, there are short, fat carrots too!

Here's how I made them.

Get some cheap dollar store zipper bags.  Don't get Ziploc brand because they have a logo on them too.

 Lay out the bag.

 Cut the zipper off on a diagonal line.

 Fill with Goldfish crackers.  I bought the giant box (30 oz.) of Goldfish crackers and I got about 12 little bags out of it.

 Twist the top.

 Cut out 11" lengths of green ribbon.

 Tie the tops with green ribbon.

 These are really simple to make and are perfect for stuffing into Easter baskets.  It's kind of refreshing to have an Easter treat that isn't loaded with sugar!
