  1. In a large bowl, combine the Cherrios®, raisins, pretzels, peanuts and chocolate chips.
  2. With a paring knife, cut the carrot in thin slices. From the slices, cut 18 sticks (about 2 inches each), 6 triangle shapes (for the chicks’ beaks), and 12 semicircles (for the chicks’ feet).
  3. Arrange a pineapple slice on a plate. Use 2 chocolate chips for the chick’s eyes, a carrot triangle for the nose, 2 carrot semicircles for the “feet,” and 3 carrot sticks for the crown.
  4. Arrange some trail mix under the pineapple slice so it resembles a nest.
  5. Repeat with remaining pineapple slices, carrot pieces and trail mix.
