Ants on a log

Rose Mary Mogan


This is another Vintage Picture of a recipe I made many years ago, but it is still tasty & always a hit when ever they are served. Big & little kids alike love these little tasty gems. Hope you give them a try. You can garnish the center of the platter with fresh or canned fruit or what ever you have on hand.

If you are having a party you will love serving this easy & impressive platter of appetizers. You can also use cream cheese instead of peanut Butter, or a combination of both on the same platter if desired.Since this is from years ago, I only have a picture of the finished product.
