Learn How it Works...
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
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
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.)
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.
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.
Cover tightly until serving time.
