    Tie the bag where the jelly beans end. Use the green ribbon and tie in a bow. The green licorice strands should be poking out above and give the appearance of a carrot top, along with the bunched up plastic.

    Give as favors at Easter or other parties. They can also be added to an Easter basket or hidden outside as a treat to be found from the "Easter bunny".

  • If your family is familiar with purple carrots, you can also make purple jelly bean carrot favors!
