    The only way to get celery into my daughter

    amy Bovee from Woodbridge, VA

    This is the only way to get my daughter to eat celery. She likes them with just plain peanut butter too but the chocolate raisins makes it seem like candy to her and she gobbles it right up. Fast and easy way to make her eat celery.

    Little Change, Not for real little kids!

    Keith Saylor from Central City PA.

    Instead of raisians, try red hots candy on the peanut butter. Not many and not for the real young as they are small (choke hazard) But very good! Mmmmm! We Call this red ants on a log!

    These are really high in saturated fat and sugar. I would not consider this a healthy snack unless it was made with sugar free peanut butter. Also, why condition kids to have chocolate and consider it a "healthy" snack? Candy should be an occasional treat, not a regular afternoon thing.

    Thumbs up!

    Christine White from LORETTO, PA

    As kids, we always made these with plain raisins and called them "Ants on a log", but the addition of the chocolate is a nice twist. A kid favorite for sure!

    Deborah Yeggy from AVON PARK, FL

    I make these for my grandchildren and they love them. They eat them, celery and all, just as fast as I can make them. Sometimes I sprinkle shredded coconut and we have "Ants in the snow".

    Our family has had a lot of fun with this recipe. We add nuts and dried fruit as other toppings for the celery. We also have replaced apple slices for the celery. Both are equally liked. A wonderful recipe that my family know that they can enjoy anytime.

    A great snack for kids and adults alike!

    Julie Allen from Searcy, AR

    I recently tried this snack because I wanted to set a good example for my kids with snacks that would be filling and tasty at the same time, although I have to admit that I was skeptical about the combination. However, much to my surprise and delight, this really hit the spot for all of us!

    New & Improved

    Janet Gobin from Providence, KY

    This is very good. I always made ants on a log before this. The chocolate is an added treat. The best part is the appearance. I have had kids refuse to try ants on a log because the raisins were not appealing to them. Covered in chocolate, they will try it and then decide if they like it. The chocolate is a clincher. Bonus is that it is healthy.

    Use a cake decorator to put the peanut butter on, it will be prettier.

    a new twist on an old favorite

    Penny Bowyer from Jacksonville, FL

    This was a favorite of mine as a child, but we used either just raisins or added chocolate chips. This is a great new way to do both with one step. My kids don't really like raisins, yet with the chocolate on the raisinets, they liked it. I like that they aren't even aware that they are eating something healthy. They just think they have chocolate and peanut butter-a favorite of theirs.

    My grandaughters love these, especially when you use chunky peanut butter. They provide a quick and easy snack and the raisinettes add something special for them.

    I will also add cream cheese instead of peanut butter. That way there are two different kinds. Both are tasty treats.

    Ants On A Log

    ChristyKay from Surprise,AZ

    As a child we used to use regular raisins, not the chocolate covered, and called them Ants On A Log. Will definitely have to try this snack with the chocolate covered raisins. A quick, tasty, and healthy snack.
