I love the traditional dirt cups but I really wanted something healthier for my family so I came up with these Healthy Bunny Treat Cups that are healthier but still delicious!
One night in bed I was literally thinking of creative ways to introduce new foods to my son. It hit me that “dirt cups” (those pudding and candy filled cups) were popular and why not make one with healthier ingredients? I searched the web and could not find anything like my idea so here you go- It’s a healthy bunny treat cup! It has hummus, carrots, and a bit of unsweetened cocoa (by the way chocolate hummus is totally a thing). In the end, it’s a delicious and healthy snack. Plus it certainly looks cute, right? Want to make your own! Below is the instructions! Enjoy!
Healthy Bunny Treat Cups
- 7 oz. original hummus
- Baby carrots
- 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa
- Celery stock leaves (optional)
- A sharp knife
- Clear plastic cups (found at Dollar Tree)
- Fill your plastic cup with the hummus. 1 tub will fill 1 cup entirely to the top. You can purchase smaller sized cups to be able to make more with 1 tub of hummus.
- Use a spoon to spread the unsweetened cocoa on the top of the hummus. This will be your “dirt”.
- Take the end of a knife and hollow out a small area in the top of a baby carrot.
- Place a bit of hummus into the hole and place one of the celery leaves in it. This will make it look like a real carrot.
- Serve with your favorite whole grain chips and additional carrots for a delicious and healthy treat!
