    1. 1
      In a food processor or blender, combine yogurt, peanut butter and dark brown sugar and puree.
    2. 2
      Pour into a pretty bowl and chill in the refrigerator, about 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      While the dip is chilling, make fruit"critters" using the fruits for bodies, pretzel sticks for legs, and raisins for eyes.
    4. 4
      Here are some suggestions, but use your imagination!
    5. 5
      Quarter and core an apple.
    6. 6
      Place the flesh side down so the peel is facing up.
    7. 7
      This will be the shell for a"beetle".
    8. 8
      Cut 1 raisin in 1/2, place the inside down towards 1 end of the apple to make"eyes" for your beetle.
    9. 9
      Break 4 pretzel sticks in half and insert into the bottom for legs.
    10. 10
      Carefully thread grapes onto a pretzel stick to make a caterpillar.
    11. 11
      Stick 2 sunflower seeds into one of the end grapes to make eyes.
    12. 12
      You can also use 2 kinds of grapes to make a multi colored caterpillar.
    13. 13
      For a fly or bee: Cut off the last 2 inches of a banana, so you have a piece with a slight curve and a tapered end.
    14. 14
      This will be the body.
    15. 15
      Carefully stick a pretzel stick into the cut surface so half is in the banana and half is sticking out.
    16. 16
      Core a strawberry and carefully stick in onto the other half of the pretzel stick to attach the"head".
    17. 17
      Cut a raisin in 1/2 and stick the cut side onto either side of the strawberry to make"eyes".
    18. 18
      Cut 2 slices of apple and carefully stick into the banana to make wings.
    19. 19
      Have fun using different fruits!
    20. 20
      Dip the critters in the dip and enjoy!

      I completely skipped the critter thing (my 13yo isn't really into that anymore) but wanted a yogurt dip. This stuff was fantastic! It was unfortunately a little on the runny side which made it difficult to stick to the fruit, so I think I might drain the yogurt before I make it again. and I will definitely make it again! It tasted sort of like a peanut butter milkshake... yummm...

      Sharon, I made this for lunch with my two youngest siblings today. We actually didn't do the dip, just the fruit was a smash hit. My sister especially enjoyed creating funky little beetles out of pears, raisins, sesame sticks, and pretzels. Thanks for this adorable idea!
