This makes a fun treat for the kids...and one grownups like as well. A healthy alternative to cupcakes for a bug themed birthday party.

Darling, fast, healthy, fun and tasty craft. We made these at my son's pre-school yesterday and the boys and girls alike got a kick out of them. We used white icing for sticking of the chocolate chips. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice apples in half from top to bottom and scoop out the core using a knife or melon baller. If you have an apple corer, core the apples before cutting them in half.
  2. Place each apple cut side down on a small plate.
  3. Dab small dots of peanut butter on the back of the "ladybug" then top the peanut butter with a chocolate chip for spots. Use this method to make eyes too.
  4. Stick one end of each pretzel stick into a raisin, then press the other end into the apples to make antennae.
