Teddy Carrot Bars

At a baby shower, I was sure to point out to the mother-to-be and the guests that these yummy bars include two jars of baby food! Decorating them with teddy bear crackers takes very little time and conveniently carries out the theme. —Susan Schuller, Brainerd, Minnesota

  • Makes
    2 dozen


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (7 ounces) applesauce baby food
  • 1 jar (4 ounces) carrot baby food
  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 to 2-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons whole milk
  • 24 cinnamon bear-shaped crackers


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, combine the baby foods, eggs and oil; add to dry ingredients just until blended.
  • Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
  • For frosting, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add confectioners' sugar. Add enough to milk to achieve desired consistency. Place a dollop of frosting on each bar; top with a bear-shaped graham cracker.
