These Carrots in the Garden Cookie Cups Easter Treats are pretty much as adorable and as fun as it gets. And they're easy to make! Make them with your kids, or maybe have the Easter Bunny leave them! The sky is the limit with Easter fun.

These are really cute and unique, and that’s about as much as I can say about it!

As you’ve noticed, I tend to roll out a lot of holiday content during the week before the holiday. I like for people to be searching for “Last Minute Easter Treats” and to stumble upon mine. Maybe they’ll stop for a second and say, “Well. That’s a new one!” With Peeps N’ Egg House Easter Treats and Chocolate Easter Egg Cookies, it’s more than a treat – it’s a story. It’s about playing with your food, if we’re being honest. So maybe just this once, forget what your parents said about NOT playing with your food. I play with my food, and I’m clearly killing it! Ok, not really but I need to tell you a short story.

I always think I’m invisible even though I wear super bright colors and I’m really friendly. It’s just my own mental thing. Anyway, I went to a favorite little cafe through the woods and the barista remembered me for always ordering breve lattes. Breve means that they’re made with cream instead of milk. She said that since I started coming in there and ordering my decaf, breve wonders, she started making them for herself. I smiled and said, “You know.. I’m no doctor, but I have a feeling that drinking cream instead of milk is not a terrible thing.” And she said, “Right! Like you. You’re clearly killing it.”

Clearly killing it! Me! I will say that it’s because I eat more real carrots than candy carrots, but that’s another story.

Also, it needs to be said that I don’t take it lightly that I think terrible thoughts about myself sometimes, and I work hard to reverse those feelings. Having an open heart and an open smile and having such conversations with baristas all help.
