  • 4 sticks celery
  • 2 Tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 5 Babybel Mini Rolls
  • 10 pretzels
  • 20 candy eyeballs


  • Cut the celery into 10 pieces, around 4-5cm long.
  • Cut a slice from the round side of each piece of celery, so that can they stand cut side down.
  • Fill each piece of celery with peanut butter, smoothing it down with the back of a knife.
  • Unwrap the Babybel Mini Rolls.
  • Push a Babybel Mini Roll into a piece of peanut butter filled celery then add two candy eyeballs to turn it into a snail. Repeat with the remaining Babybel Mini Rolls.
  • Push 2 pretzels into a piece of peanut butter filled celery for butterfly wings, then add two candy eyeballs to finish. Repeat with the remaining pretzels.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!


Be sure to check for allergies before serving peanut butter at a party. If you need to avoid nuts, try substituting the peanut butter with a seed butter or cream cheese instead.
