Ants on a Log October 13, 2011

Jamie says:  Ants on a Log.  It’s one of those snacks that must be a right of passage for entering those preschool years.  Maybe not for everyone, though.  I mentioned “Ants on a Log” to someone recently and got a funny look.  So I thought I’d share this fun, classic recipe with you.  If you’ve never tried Ants on  a Log, hop on board.  It’s one of those common life experiences…

Ants on a Log

It’s a great energizing snack for kids and adults alike.  It’s easy to make, healthy, quick, and kid-friendly.  (It only takes a hint of imagination to picture the raisins as ants and the celery as a log.)

Just think of the celery as a crunchy vehicle for the tasty peanut butter and sweet raisins.
