As a strategy, I would suggest making the Celery Butterflies before you make the Candy Butterflies. You will have a much better response. I promise.
RECIPE: PRETZEL BUTTERFLIES – HEALTHY VERSION
6 stalks of celery
1 tub Whipped Cream Cheese
1/4 Cup Raisins
1/2 Cup Small Pretzel Twists
Wash and cut celery into 2 inch slices.
Spread cream cheese in celery
Insert two pretzels into cream cheese (single opening toward the body)
Break a pretzel into antennae and insert at top of celery
When the kids eat these, they love to pull the wings off and dip them into the cream cheese. Gruesome.
