I found this to be very fun to make. And It tastes surprisingly well! I'm not a fan of cucumbers or carrots, but this is definitely something I could eat!
I made this as the directions listed, but I have a few suggestions. Sometimes I used less cream cheese so that when I rolled the cucumber, the end could overlap and I didn't have to worry about anything spilling out. I also added more raisins, since 2-3 didn't really seem like a lot.
I didn't have any large carrots on me, so I shredded 1/2 cup of baby carrots (24 servings = 24 tsp = 8 TBS = 1/2 c).
As for chives breaking, buy fresh as possible and as green as possible. I suppose not too many people made jewelery out of grass as kids, but don't pull the chives too tight or they will break. Also, do not use any wimpy/weak/shriveled chives as those tend to break the most when tugged.
Since you are making each roll by hand, it is a lot of work and time consuming. I also suggest placing finished rolls onto whatever you plan to serve them on, to prevent the chives from untying between finishing and eating.
