Snail on a Log Swamp Treat


Snail on a Log, complete with swamp and mud, yummy!

What a great treat for the little “bug-ologist” in your family!

Items Needed:

  • 2 Hostess Caramel Ho Hos
  • 5 soft caramel candies
  • 2 small candies (for eyes)
  • Chocolate cookie crumbles

With really clean hands, roll one caramel candy into a ball to warm it up a bit. Form it into the shape of a small snail”s body (with a pointy “tail” and a head). Slice a section of one of your Hostess Caramel Ho Hos about a half-inch thick to make your snail”s “shell.” Place this slice on top of your snail”s body. Place your snail on top of another Hostess Caramel Ho Ho. Attach two small candies to your snail”s face for “eyes.”

To make the “pond,” place four unwrapped caramel cubes on a small plate and place them in the microwave for about a minute. Then stir the melted caramel around on the plate until they form a pond. Use about 3 table spoons of crumbled chocolate cookies and place them around the edge of the plate to make the “banks of the pond.”

Place your snail on a log on top of the pond and serve with a big smile!
