Aprils Fool - Peas & Carrots

My Aprils fools joke on my family had good intentions but was a last minute idea and I really had no time to go from store to store looking for the right hue in candy.
I used jolly rancher green apple, and starburst orange.
You will want to heat up your candy for a few seconds in the microwave, a couple at a time.
Work with those, cutting up and shaping them before heating up the next.
Other wise they harden up pretty quick and constant re-heating will only toughen up the candy.


I could have made my peas smaller, and I'll keep a look out for darker orange candy, needs to be the soft chews.
Here are my finished peas and carrots.
Was very hard not to snack on them in the making!


And here they are on Dyllan's plate, next to the real deal.
Funny to watch him try to stab a carrot with his fork.
He liked them well enough and asked for them repeatedly during the meal!
I'm looking forward till next year and already have some new idea's on to what I'll create!

Thanks for visiting!
