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

Directions

  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. 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. 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. Cover tightly until serving time.

Recipe Tips

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

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