  • 20 pieces (3-1/2 inches each) celery
  • 3 slices (1 oz each) deli sliced cooked ham
  • 10 sweetened dried cranberries

Crunchy Mummies

1. Place cream cheese in resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut 1/2 inch off 1 corner. Pipe about 1 tablespoon into each celery piece.

2. Cut ham slices lengthwise into 16 pieces. Cut pieces crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Place about 12 ham pieces over cream cheese to look like "bandages" and use tip of knife to tuck in ends of ham along celery edge.

3. Cut cranberries into 40 pieces. Place pieces between "bandages" for eyes.

Doughboy Tips

These cute snacks are fun for kids to make and eat. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of the celery so it lays flat. Then if you want, serve the mummies on whole grain crackers.
