ServingsMakes 4 servings, 2 caterpillars (104 g) each.
  • 3 stalks celery, divided
  • ⅓ cup garden vegetable soft cream cheese, divided
  • 8 Ritz Crackers, cut in half
  • 8 small grape tomatoes
  • 1 baby carrot, cut into 16 thin strips
  • Cut 64 thin slices from 1 celery stalk; set aside. Cut EACH of the 2 remaining celery stalks crosswise into 4 (3-inch-long) pieces. Trim rounded sides of celery pieces to allow celery pieces to stand level when placed on plate.
  • Reserve 1/4 tsp. cream cheese for later use. Fill celery pieces with remaining cream cheese. Insert cut sides of 2 cracker halves into cream cheese in each celery piece, overlapping slightly as shown in photo, for the caterpillar's body.
  • Add 4 celery slices to each side of EACH caterpillar's body for the legs. Place a tomato at one end of each caterpillar for the head, then add 2 dots of the reserved cream cheese to tomato for the eyes. Add carrot strips for the antennae.
