Carrot Sugar Cookies in Dirt

Easter bunnies and babes will love these easy carrot cookie dirt cakes. They're easy to make and look cute as can be for spring parties, garden parties, and Easter dessert!


packet Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
stick butter, softened
tablespoon flour
Betty Crocker™ red and yellow decorating gels
cup turbinado sugar (or orange sugar sprinkles)
(4-container) chocolate pudding snack packs
cups Cocoa Puffs™ Cereal, crushed
Fruit Roll-Ups, blue & green
tablespoons Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting


  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, use a fork to mix together the sugar cookie mix, butter, flour, and egg. Tint with food coloring until dough is bright orange.
  • 2 Sprinkle turbinado sugar on a clean, flat surface. Roll the sugar cookie dough on top of the turbinado sugar, until about 1/4-inch thick.
  • 3 Squeeze a metal, heart shaped cookie cutter into a carrot shape by pinching the top portion of the heart together. Cut out carrot cookies, placing them sugared side UP on a baking sheet.
  • 4 Bake in preheated oven for 8-12 minutes, or just until light golden brown on the bottom of each cookie. Remove cookies from the oven and cool completely.
  • 5 Spoon pudding into 6 small plastic cups. Sprinkle crushed Cocoa Puffs™ over the top of the pudding.
  • 6 Cut the green portion from each Fruit Roll-Up. Cut this green portion into two even pieces, then snip into jagged leaves.
  • 7 Dab a small bit of vanilla frosting into the top center portion of the carrot cookies, then drape your green leaves over the carrot. Press the bottom of each carrot into the dirt in the cups.
  • 8 Garnish with small signs taped to sucker sticks that say Carrots, if desired.

Carrot Cookie Cups

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Grab a spade--er--spoon, and dig into our cute little Carrot Cookie Cups.

Spring is in the air! And on the ground! And in your kitchen! And with these fun, simple cookie cups, you can celebrate spring in style!

Whether you're getting your kids busy in the kitch with a make-your-own edible craft, or serving them up as a festive garden party dessert, these super cool cookie cups are sure to entice Easter bunnies and all sorts of other adorable creatures to the table!

Here's how:

Bake up a batch of orange-tinted sugar cookies. To get that cute, carrot shape, you can squeeze a metal heart-shaped cookie cutter until elongated and "carrot-shaped."

Carrot Cookies

Spoon some pre-made chocolate pudding into the bottom of a small cup.

Add Pudding to Plastic Cups

Top with crushed Cocoa Puffs to give your cups that authentic "dirt" look. It's like a little, edible garden!

Add Cocoa Puffs "Dirt"

Grab some blue & green fruit roll-ups

Use Fruit Roll-Ups as Leaves

Use a clean pair of scissors to cut the green portion from the Fruit Roll-Ups.

Fruit Roll-Ups

Snip each green piece of Fruit Roll-Up into two small squares. Then, use your scissors to snip each square into an "hourglass" shape, with jagged edges.

Fruit Roll-Ups as Carrot Leaves

A small dollop of frosting on top of each carrot will allow you to drape these little Fruit Roll-Up "leaves" securely over the top of each cookie.

Fruit Roll-Up "Stems"

Gently press your cookies into the dirt cups. If you're feeling crafty, you can make little "carrot" signs and glue them onto sucker sticks, then gently press the sucker sticks into the pudding.
