This fun and healthy snack recipe can be prepared in 30 minutes or less!


  • 3 large carrots (any color)
  • 2 medium cucumbers
  • (8oz) bag cubed cheddar cheese


  • toothpicks
  • paring knife
  • cutting board


  1. Cut carrots & cucumbers into 1/4 inch thick slices (thick enough to hold a toothpick)
  2. Cut cucumber slices into half moons. Cut a V shape wide enough to remove seeds. 
  3. Starting from the center of the carrot, cut a triangle pointing outward. Make a slice at the edge on either side of the triangle to remove two small triangle-shaped pieces of carrot, making a tulip shape. (see collage above)
  4. Poke a toothpick in the bottom of tulip-shaped carrots. Slide cut cucumber v-side up on toothpick toward the carrot.
  5. Stick a cheese cube on the bottom of the toothpick. Repeat!



Larger cubes of cheese may be required if using thick-cut veggies!
