I recognize that for many people this little snack is quite common. It seems to be this way here in the U.S. But for me, this is a new discovery. I never had ants on a log. In my mind I picture parents and grandparents making this snack for little ones: "look, it is like ants on a log!" And the child is so excited to take a bite of the log and make some ants disappear. Pour little ants!
I think it's the cutest thing, and it also makes for a pretty healthy snack. For mine, I use peanut butter sometimes, other times I use cream cheese. And for the little ants, they can be anything from raisins, to currants to dry cranberries. Maybe there are others way of making them but I only know those ones ( I accept suggestions though!)
Perhaps one day I will be making those cute snacks to someone little too!
To make them:
Clean and cut celery stalks into pieces. Fill each piece with peanut butter or cream cheese. Top them with raisins, currants, cranberries.
Enjoy and have fun!
