Ingredients

Filling:

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup cocoa powder 

1/4 cup honey 

1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar (or a pinch of cinnamon and a teaspoon of sugar) 

2 large avocados, halved, pitted and peeled

Logs and Insects:

4 to 6 stalks celery (be sure to pick ones that can hold filling), cut into thirds, leaves set aside

4 ounces raspberries (ladybugs) 

10 to 20 raisins (ants) 

10 to 20 dried cherries (red ants) 

10 to 20 pretzels or thin pretzel sticks (worms or stick bugs) 

Directions

  1. For the filling: Add the peanut butter, cocoa powder, honey, cinnamon sugar and avocado to a food processor and blend on high until smooth and aerated. Scoop into a piping bag or sealable plastic bag. Refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. For the logs and insects: Choose a tip for piping or cut a hole in the corner of the plastic bag. Place the celery leaves in the recess of the celery stalks and pipe the filling over them, leaving a bit of the leaves sticking up on the sides of each. Top with one of each "insect"--a raspberry, raisin, dried cherry and pretzel--along the length or make logs to your liking.
