> 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
> 8 (3 inch) celery sticks
> 1 cup seedless grapes
> Blueberries, kiwi slices, apple slices, or orange slices (optional)
> Pretzel sticks, halved, as needed
> 1 tsp mini chocolate chips


Add the peanut butter to a small resealable plastic bag. Using scissors, cut the corner off the bag to create a small opening. Pipe peanut butter into each celery stick cavity. Arrange 5 grapes on top of peanut butter. If desired, used blueberries instead of grapes for a different critter, or place a kiwi, apple, or orange slice into the peanut butter to make a snail shell.
Insert two pretzel halves into each critter head to make antennae. Pipe 2 small peanut butter dots onto each head and add 1 chocolate chip to each dot to make eyes.
