Ants on a Log homemadeforelle

As a working mom, I try to pack snacks to bring to work so I don’t hit up the vending machine.  The options are usually expensive, so I prefer to bring stuff from home.  I love coming up with new snacks, and have actually packed celery and peanut butter recently!  

It got me thinking about Ants on a Log, a treat I used to eat when I was younger.  Actually, I believe I ate the peanut butter and raisins, and left the celery on the plate… but these days, I love celery! 

I decided to make a savory, grown-up version of Ants on a Log with crisp sticks of celery, hummus, and Hormel Bacon Toppings.

Ants on a Log

  • Celery Sticks
  • Hummus (homemade or store-bought)
  • Hormel Real Bacon Pieces

Take your celery sticks and cut them down to preferred size.  Cut a thin strip off the bottom of the celery sticks, so the sticks lay level when you place them on a plate.  

Spoon a little hummus into each celery stick.  Place Hormel Real Bacon pieces onto the the hummus, to create a playful, yet satisfying ants on a log!

  2. You can’t go wrong with bacon- even husbands will eat it then 🙂

    We love hummus and celery but bacon? I’ve never tried that but now I will. YUM!

  4. Oh my goodness, these look so yummy! I think even my kids would eat them. I definitely love the idea of having this as a snack for work. I tend to run out of ideas for lunch so I stick with the boring sandwich or salad routine. This is something different to throw in once in awhile 🙂
