Ingredients

Frosting

6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

1 (1-ounce) square unsweetened baking chocolate, melted, cooled slightly

2 cups powdered sugar

1 to 2 tablespoons milk

Caterpillar

36 round salted butter crackers

1 large nonpareil

14 gumdrop candies

65 to 70 candy-coated pastel licorice candies

Licorice strings or twists, cut as desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter, peanut butter and chocolate in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add powdered sugar; beat at low speed until well mixed. Increase speed to high; continue beating, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. (Frosting should not be too thin.)

  2. STEP 2

    Work with 1 cracker at a time on a 14x10-inch or large serving tray. Frost 1 side of cracker; press frosted side onto unfrosted side of another cracker. Hold crackers upright while assembling. Continue with remaining crackers and frosting to form curved caterpillar.

  3. STEP 3

    Attach nonpareil for head and gumdrop candies for eyes and back bumps, using frosting. Create legs by pushing candy-coated licorice pieces in between crackers towards bottom. Use licorice strings to make antennas.

  4. STEP 4

    Cover tightly until serving time.

Tip #1

- This caterpillar is best served the day it is prepared so that the crackers stay crisp and frosting stays creamy.

Tip #2

- A 15x10x1-inch baking pan can be substituted for a serving tray. Cover with aluminum foil or decorative paper.
