Bugs to Eat

Bring these to a picnic and confuse the ants! You will need:

11/2 cups peanut butter
1 Tbsp. honey
1/3 cup dry-milk powder
2 Tbsps. sesame seeds
1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa
shoestring licorice

Mix together the honey and peanut butter in a bowl.

Add the milk and sesame seeds. Mix well.

Use one-half of a tablespoon of the mixture to make each "bug."

Roll into an oval for a bee-shaped body, into a round body for a ladybug, and so on.

To Make Bees: Dip a toothpick into cocoa powder, then press it lightly across the top of each "bee" to form dark stripes.

Stick a cracker on either side of the "bee" for wings. Poke in thin and short pieces of licorice shoestring candy or pretzels to make legs and antennae for other bugs.

The licorice can be looped to make wings. Add raisins for eyes.

Chill for one-half hour.
