    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Your kids will fly right home for these delicious after-school nutritious snacks that look like beautiful butterflies. Add a few raisins on each "apple wing" and they transform into butterflies with spotted wings. Spice up the flavor by adding 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the peanut butter. From Pillsbury.com

    • 1/2 cup peanut butter
    • 4 fresh baby carrots
    • 1 large red apple
    • 8 pieces celery, thin strips (2-inch-long)
    • colored decorator sugar (optional)

      Cheryl - you are by far the most creative mom ever! My son loved it! At first he didn't want to ruin it - so he first ate the celery since he said it still looked like a butterfly without it - then the raisins, then a bite from each wing - it was hilarious! He finally just gave up saving the poor butterfly and gobbled it up! Thanks for a great treat!
