Updated June 17, 2010

Ingredients

  • 28 miniature buttery round peanut butter-filled cracker sandwiches
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 8 miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 8 pieces black string licorice (each 1 inch long)
  • 32 miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits
  • Red decorating gel (from a tube)

Steps

  • 1
    Use 7 cracker sandwiches for each caterpillar, spread one side of 6 cracker sandwiches with peanut butter. Press uncoated side of 1 cracker sandwich to peanut butter-coated side of another cracker sandwich. Repeat with remaining 5 cracker sandwiches, offsetting slightly to form S-shaped caterpillar and ending with 1 uncoated cracker sandwich. Arrange caterpillars on serving plate.
  • 2
    On each caterpillar, attach 2 chocolate chips with small amount of peanut butter on one end for eyes. Place 2 pieces of licorice between first 2 crackers for antennae. Attach 4 baking bits with peanut butter along each side of caterpillar for legs. With decorating gel, decorate "face" with mouth and any other features.

  • Just for fun, create a "play ground" on the serving plate for your caterpillars. Smash up some chocolate wafer cookies to make "dirt," and color some coconut green for "grass."
