Creepy Crawly Crackerpillars
28 miniature buttery round peanut butter-filled cracker sandwiches
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
8 miniature semisweet chocolate chips
8 (1-inch) pieces black string licorice
32 miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits
Red decorating gel from a tube
Using 7 cracker sandwiches for each crackerpillar, spread a tiny bit of peanut butter on one side of 6 of the cracker sandwiches. Stack them on top of each other so that the last sandwich has peanut butter on top. Put the last cracker sandwich on top. Lay the stack on its side. Form this column into an "S" shape. Repeat to make three more crackerpillars.
Attach 2 miniature chocolate chips with a dab of peanut butter to make eyes on 1 end of each crackerpillar. Stick pieces of licorice between the first 2 cracker sandwiches to make antennae. Attach 4 baking bits with peanut butter along each side of the column to make legs. Squeeze the decorating gel to paint on the mouths. Makes 4 crackerpillars.
