DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Cut the celery stalks into 2-3 inch logs.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Line up raisins along the center.
  • Variation:
  • 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:
  • Spread nutella down the valley of the celery and garnish with raisins.
  • Or, spread Recipe #120220 over the valley of the celery and garnish with raisins.
