How to Make it Yours
I used muffin liners and shaped them as best I could into triangles. There’s probably some more involved way to ensure the shape is more defined, but I didn’t get that detailed. I filled them with hummus, but you could also fill with ranch (see post on a delicious homemade option for that). I had high hopes of adding some sliced green peppers to make a stem, but as you can see that never happened. There’s lots of other veggie and fruit options that could have worked. I went with baby carrots because no chopping required! I also would have used different colored muffin liners. Something darker to help edge the colors between the hummus and the carrots.
