FOUR days until Halloween!!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

We all remember from our kindergarten days

that fun snack they call ”Ants on a Log,” don’t we?

You know, the peanut buttery-filled celery stick with raisins on top. 

What if I told you that there are 2 other secret versions

that your teachers never heard of?

Versions that are only reserved especially for Halloween.

Want in on the secret?

Okaaaaaaaayyyy,

you asked for it:

“Roaches on a stick”

Repulsive.

Disgusting.

Creepy.

Gross.

All the adjectives a person wants to hear when describing their snack, right?

Roaches on a Stick Recipe

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Dates (warm your guests that the pit is still in there!)
  • Ener-G pretzel rings, gently cut into 4 pieces each.
  • celery sticks

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Fill celery sticks with peanut butter. Set aside.
  2. Assemble Roaches: place 3 pretzel pieces per side of date (6 total).

  4. Easy enough, right?

 

They’re everywhere!

*shuddering* 

Or what about the second secret Halloween version

Peanut Butter Witches Fingers

“Bloody fingers and claws”

These are my favorite.

Bloody fingers sure hit the spot, don’t they?

Peanut Butter Witches Fingers

How many fingers and roaches do you think you can eat?

Muahahahaha.

(I’m not really sure if that question actually deserved an evil laugh).

And I’m almost positive that I don’t want to know the answer…
