Get your ants marching one by one on this crunchy faux log and give your guests a laugh and a treat. The carrot sticks are beloved by dieters and the peanut butter will keep stomachs from growling until the main course arrives.
Not to mention, the hours of fun you can spend creating your own edible ant farm—all you need are some raisins and chow mein noodles.
step 1Wash celery and carrots and cut in half, lengthwise.
step 2Fill half of the celery with the peanut butter, fill the other half with the cream cheese.
step 3Place the raisins every few inches on top of the cream cheese and the peanut butter.
step 4Spread a plate with the chow mein noodles and place the celery "logs" on top.
If you really want to get creative, make legs for the raisin bugs with the noodles. You can dye the noodles to match the raisins by mixing red and blue food coloring in a bowl. Toss enough noodles in the coloring to make the legs and dry in the oven at 350º on a cookie sheet for one minute.
