Picnic Table Ants

Trick everyone at the summer picnic into thinking their place setting is covered in ants. These picnic table ant bites are simply adorable and the perfect way to celebrate summer.


Original Pretzel Crisps®
Red food coloring
Piping (or plastic storage) bag
Flat piping tip
Chocolate covered peanuts
Black sprinkles

Use a knife to spread white frosting on top of each Pretzel Crisps®.

Place them in the fridge to firm up. Mix red food coloring into the frosting. Place a flat piping tip into the bag, and then fill it with red frosting. Cut the tip of the piping bag, so that the tip pokes through the hole. The hole should be small enough so that the tip cannot escape through it.

Gently push the frosting out so that you pipe squares onto the white frosting. The red frosting should be thick enough to hold its shape when piped out. Pipe out a pattern of squares and return to fridge.

Once firm, place three chocolate covered peanuts on top. Use eight black sprinkles along the side of the bottom two peanuts to create legs. Use another four sprinkles to create antennas on the top of the third chocolate peanut.

Serve or keep cool until serving.

Tip: You can use a toothpick to fix any of the square shapes if they don’t pipe out well.
