Tasty Tuesday A Day Late

Whoops! I was suppose to sit down and do Tasty Tuesday yesterday and I forgot so its a day late. This is a quick snack that we made the other day. Everyone has probably already done it and we are the last ones to ever give it a go. It is ANTS ON A LOG.
If you've never tried this before you should give it a go.
You will need some celery, some peanut butter (crunchy or smooth, your choice) and some raisins. Instead of raisins we just happen to have a mix called Salad Pizazz which contains raspberry flavoured dried cranberries and glazed walnuts. We found this in our fruit and veggie section. I think they have other mixes as well.

First you chop your celery into logs. They can be as long or as short as you want. Then spread your peanut butter into the curved part of you celery. Here's where Victoria walked in and caught me making this snack and asked if she could help.

So here she is adding the 'ants' to our logs, putting them on the peanut butter so they dont fall off. She had lots of fun doing that, notice the big cheesy grin :)

Now for the taste testing......

It was a big hit. She really liked them especially because she got to help. I thought they tasted pretty good and healthy too.
If you give this snack a go or you have made this in a different way that was really tasty, let me know. I'd love to hear about it.

I think these would also be yummy if you replaced the peanut butter with cream cheese.
