Your kids will fly right home for these tasty afterschool nutritious snacks that look like colorful butterflies. Add a few raisins on each "apple wing" and they transform into butterflies with spotted wings.

1/2
cup peanut butter*
4
fresh baby carrots
1
large red apple
8
(2-inch-long) thin strips celery
Colored decorator sugar, if desired

Steps

  • 1 Spoon 2 tablespoons peanut butter onto center of each of 4 individual plates. Shape peanut butter on each plate into a mound about 2 inches long and 1 inch wide. Place 1 carrot down center of each mound of peanut butter.
  • 2 Cut apple into quarters; remove core. Cut each quarter into 7 thin slices; cut 1 slice in half crosswise. Fan 3 apple slices on each side near top of each carrot to form upper wings. Place 1 half-slice on each side near bottom of each carrot to form lower wings.
