Ingredients

  • 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.

    Place 2 strips of celery at top of each carrot to form antennae. Sprinkle apple slices with decorator sugar.

  • Spice up the flavor by adding 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the peanut butter.
