Ants On A Log are a classic springtime treat to make for the kids. But we’ve all seen it. Try making the celery sticks into something that look like they could fly right off the plate.

Make a Ladybug with half a red apple. Use a dab of Nutella to glue down chocolate chips to create the dots on the body. Or you can use a whole strawberry and push the pointy end of the chocolate chips into the berry. Use a toothpick to secure a blueberry head.
