    Rowenna's Note:

    I think I'm going to alternatively name it "Gentlemen Ants On A Log". This is just yummy. I made it up for my sister's bug party--we're doing something a little more adult, and a little more fancy, so I updated the recipe for grown-ups (of course, it is still kid-friendly). I used a mixture of imitation honey and splenda--so yes, fiddle with the sweetness and honey flavor as you like.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 18

    Yield:

    logs

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Optional Step: Soak raisins in just enough rum to cover for at least one hour, or overnight. You can cook the rum first for a nonalcoholic version for kids. Drain before using.
    2. 2
      Cut the celery stalks into 2-3 inch logs.
    3. 3
      Cream together the cream cheese, peanut butter, and honey (the cream cheese and peanut butter can be eyeballed to equal parts; the honey is more to taste. When I'm done, it tastes almost like cheesecake).
    4. 4
      Spread the peanut butter mixture into the valleys of each log. Alternatively, fill a dessert decorator and pump the peanut butter mixture into the valley like frosting.
    5. 5
      Line up raisins along the center.
    6. 6
      Variation:.
    7. 7
      I won't put up a different recipe for every nifty ants on a log idea I come up with, so here are a couple of ideas:.
    8. 8
      Spread nutella down the valley of the celery and garnish with raisins.
    9. 9
      Or, spread Honey Hazelnut Spread (The Anti-Nutella) over the valley of the celery and garnish with raisins.
