Crabby Crabwich

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Hungry kids will dig right into this tasty lunchtime fare, perfect for beach parties, picnics, and more.

Serves: 2


  • 1 croissant
  • Sandwich filling*
  • 6 baby carrots
  • 2 toothpicks
  • 1 black olive
  • 2 cream cheese balls (1/2-inch)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 radish


Slit open the outside edge of a croissant, as shown, and stuff it with sandwich filling.*

Tuck six baby carrots into the sides to form legs.

Slide two 1/2-inch balls of cream cheese onto toothpicks, top each with a black olive slice, and stick them in place as shown.

Snip off the tips of the croissant and slide a red bell pepper claw into each end.

Finish the crab by attaching a radish slice smile with a dab of cream cheese.


We used crab salad in our sandwich, but chicken or tuna salad, ham and cheese, and PB&J also make delicious fillers.
