Creepy crawly crackers

Not all Halloween goodies have to be loaded with sugar. When these creepy-crawlers get onto your kids’ plates, they’ll vanish in no time.

Ingredients

  • 20 round crackers (I like Late July Organic Crackers)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 40 small pretzel sticks
  • A handful of raisins or chocolate chips

Yields 10 bugs

Directions

  • Break pretzel sticks in half and set aside. Lay out 10 crackers onto a large plate or cookie sheet.
  • Spread a generous amount of peanut butter over the cracker.Place eight pretzels in the peanut butter, making four “V” shapes. Repeat this for all 10 crackers.
  • Dab a small amount of peanut butter onto the remaining 10crackers to make a sandwich with the bottom halves.
  • Finally, glue chocolate chips or raisins with peanut butter onto the top of the bug.
  • If peanut allergies are a problem, use hummus or cream cheese instead.
