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…
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.
