Who loves carrots more than bunnies? Kids do, when they’re made of sugar and butter. Use a carrot-shaped cutter to make your favorite rolled out dough into carrot shapes. Use food dye to make 3/4 jar of white frosting orange, and the rest bright green. Add to any holiday gift basket.

Those of us who can only eat so many candies, but hate to see anything go to waste can say “Hello” to post-holiday candy melts. These are the medley of baking, the solution to bowls full of remainders from candy baskets. Start with basic dough, sugar and short bread work well, and then toss in the candies to bake the ultimate hybrids.
