Peter Cottontails

3 ounces cream cheese (or neufchatel)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
1 cup finely shredded carrots
1/2 cup grapenuts

Beat cheeses together until blended, stir in carrots. Cover and chill, then shape into balls. Roll in cereal and chill until ready to serve.

And watch them disappear.

{Recipe from Healthy Snacks for Kids by Penny Warner. One of my favorite cookbook staples, and one from which the children enjoy equally the choosing, the helping, (the little sign-making) and the eating!}
