Carrots for My Bunny Niece and Nephews

I recommend this recipe to the people who love to eat carrots. Easter has come and gone – though second Easter Sunday is coming up soon (it's a whole week) and so there's no reason why you can't put your desire to eat like a bunny. Easter dinner recipes are one of the preparations that my family work with since all of us will be present on the house. I think this recipe will work to my niece and nephews since they really crave to carrots.
