Bug themed treats for your birthday party
From gummy centipedes to chocolate bumble-bees, we have some recipes that won't
bite. Bug out with these creepy crawly vittles you make from scratch with just a few
ingredients and a few simple steps:
- Bumble Bee Bug: Simple as can "bee" you need just three ingredients:
Dove chocolate squares, pretzel twists and Wilton yellow sparkle gel.
Arrange pretzels on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Unwrap and
place one Dove chocolate bar on the tip of each mini pretzel, then bake a
few minutes (minding the oven) until the chocolate melts. Allow to cool.

- Dragon Fly Bug or Blue Morpho Butterfly: Cut Wilton Blue candy melts in half
and arrange them on a waxed paper so that. two pieces melt into the
pretzel as wings. Then place unwrap and place one Dove chocolate for
the body and melt for a few minutes minding the oven. Cool. Then use
Wilton Yellow Icing Gel to make bug eyes and serve.
- Daddy Longlegs Marshmellows: Pre-cut black licorice laces for legs (2 inch
strips, four legs on each side), set aside. Melt a bag chocolate chips in a
microwave safe dish (about 2 minutes). Drench a marshmallow in
chocolate by dipping it and set it carefully onto Graham Cracker. Insert
licorice legs on each side. Set aside to cool. When cooled, use Wilton
Yellow Icing to create eyes. Or use sugar eyes, which you can reserve to
make a variety of critters for the party.
- Worms in Dirt: Crush your favorite Newman-O's sandwich cookies or other
sandwich cookie (look for a brand without hydrogenated oils). Crush in
food processor or use rolling pin to crush them in a freezer bag. No need
to divide the halves, crush the whole cookie. Set aside. Make butterscotch
pudding and divvy up into mini plastic flower pots that you've washed.
You can plug the holes of the pot with mini marshmallows, and line the
bottom of the pots with your "dirt" before fill with pudding. Top the
pudding with dirt and a some gummy worms or centipedes protruding
from the dirt. The Gummy Centipede,s pictured left from Haribo looks tasty
coming from the pile of dirt as well.
