This is the month that the majestic Monarch Butterflies sail down to warmer weather. It AMAZES me every single year that those little fragile guys and gals can make such a trip. It also amazes me that they are so fashionable, wearing black and orange for their October flight! Let's salute their fantastic voyage by making a snack in their honor!
1 wide celery stalk
3 Tablespoons of peanut butter*
6 small pretzels
6 slivered almonds
1. Cut celery into three pieces. 2. Fill each piece with 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter. 3. Place two pretzels into peanut butter for “wings”. 4. Place two slivered almonds into the peanut butter near the end of the celery for antennae.
Makes three butterflies.
*You can substitute cream cheese or any nut butter for the peanut butter if you like!
