Biscuit Buddies: Caterpillars for the Kids

A biscuit caterpillar buddy, almost too cute to eat.

We made these cute little critters in our "Sizzling Summer" cooking class.  On the last day of class we have a BBQ blast, where we cook all kinds of food outside while we learn about safety around the grill (there are more safety tips than you might think, especially for small children).

We always make these biscuit caterpillars to go with our shish kebab.  They are fun to make and yummy too.  Try some this weekend with dinner, but be sure and let the kids help.

Caterpillar Biscuits

Refrigerator Biscuits
Sesame Seeds
Poppy Seeds
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Pretzel Sticks
Butter or Margarine (melted)

Prepare small bowls of sesame seeds, poppy seeds and grated cheese. Using two biscuits, cut each in half and roll into four small dough balls.  Dip the dough balls into the melted butter and then roll them in seeds or cheese. Press the balls together on a cookie sheet to form a caterpillar shape.

Bake the biscuits according to the directions on the package. When the caterpillar biscuits are done, you can poke 2 pretzel sticks into the head of the biscuit caterpillar for antennae. You can use the raisins for eyes.
