Gross Out Delights

Insect-Infested Logs

Makes 4 serving(s)

WHAT'S IN IT?

4 (8-inch) celery stalks
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons currants
2 tablespoons apricot bits or 6 dried apricots sliced into mini "worm-like" pieces

STUFF YOU NEED

Cutting board
Cutting knife
Butter knife
Dry measuring cups
Measuring spoons
4 snack-size plates

HOW TO PUT IT TOGETHER

  1. Sit the celery stalks down on a cutting board. Saw each celery stalk in half with a cutting knife to make eight (4-inch) pieces.
  2. With a butter knife, spread the peanut butter from its measuring cup in each piece of celery. These are your "logs."
  3. On top of the peanut butter, sprinkle the currants ("baby ants") and apricots ("worms" or "larvae") straight from their measuring spoon.
  4. Lay two Insect-Infested Logs onto each plate.
  5. Take a bite—if you're not too grossed out! They're weirdly wonderful!

You're telling me that after this bite of celery hits my stomach it's going to travel 24 feet through my intestines?!?! No way!
