Learn how to make these easy Carrot Patch Easter Treats that are chocolate and cake filled using a silicone mold, candy melts and chocolate cake. Perfect for Easter baskets or treats to eat!

Carrot Patch Easter Treats

With Easter just around the corner these are the perfect treats to make for the dessert table served on a bed of dirt (crumbled chocolate cake) or wrap up and put inside the kids Easter baskets. We filled the inside of our chocolate carrot treats with cake but you could easily just make them all chocolate or fill the inside with brownies, cookies, etc.

How to Make Carrot Patch Easter Treats

Ingredients

Chocolate boxed cake mix – (oil, eggs and water for box cake mix ingredients)
Orange candy melts 
Green candy melts

Will Also Need

Popsicle silicone mold
Parchment paper
Bowls
Spoons
Cake pan
Sandwich or piping bag
Tray for display

How to Make Carrot Patch Easter Treats

Add orange candy melts to bowl and melt in microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until creamy and smooth.

Spoon melted candy melts into the popsicle molds making sure to only fill the sides of the mold all the way to the top and keeping the inside hollow. Be sure to cover the popsicle stick hole also. Use the back of a spoon to guide the chocolate throughout the mold.

Place molds in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. 

While the chocolate is hardening in the fridge or freezer, bake your cake according to the box directions. Once the cake is done allow to cool completely.

Once the cake is cooled, crumble the cake with your hands and smush the cake pieces into the popsicle molds almost to the top. Place the orange melted chocolate on top and be sure to cover the cake. Place back in the freezer or fridge for about 15 minutes or until harden.

Very carefully remove from the mold. If they don’t pop out easily, place back in freezer for a few more minutes.

Make the Chocolate Carrot Tops

Add green candy melts to bowl and melt in microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until creamy and smooth.

Lay a piece of parchment paper down on a flat surface.

Use a sandwich bag or piping bag and add the melted chocolate. Wait a few minutes to cool to make it easy to pipe. If using a sandwich bag snipe one corner off to pipe.

Pipe some carrot tops on top of the parchment paper with the melted green chocolate and allow to harden. Once harden, peel off the parchment paper.

Decorate the Chocolate Carrots

Add orange candy melts to bowl and melt in microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until creamy and smooth.

Use a sandwich bag or piping bag and add the melted chocolate. Wait a few minutes to cool to make it easy to pipe. If using a sandwich bag snipe one corner off to pipe.

Pipe the melted orange chocolate in a diagonal across the carrots and allow to harden for a few minutes.

Pipe the melted orange chocolate at the top of the carrot and add the carrot tops to each carrot and allow to harden. May need to prop it up on something for it to stay while hardening and may need to reinforce it with more chocolate after it hardens.

Display the Carrot Patch

To display the treats, place crumbled cake to look like dirt in a tray and place the carrots on top. It should look like a carrot patch when finished. Add some cute Easter decorations around it and enjoy!
