Spider Snacks

  • 1 12-ounce package chunk white tuna in water, drained
  • 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 slices whole-wheat bread, crusts cut off
  • 48 mini pretzel sticks, broken in half
  • 24 raisins, flattened
  • 2 baby carrots, thinly sliced and cut into triangular "fangs," optional
  1. Place tuna in a small bowl and mash with a fork until no large chunks are left.
  2. Add mayonnaise, green onions, celery, salt and pepper, mixing well to combine.
  3. Cut bread slices in half.
  4. Press a piece of bread into an ice-cream scooper to make the rounded body of the spider.
  5. Fill with tuna mixture.
  6. Place another piece of bread over the tuna to cover, and press around the edge of the ice cream scooper to cut away excess bread to make spider body bottom. Unmold and set aside. Repeat using all bread and tuna.
  7. Place spiders on a plate and decorate with pretzel stick legs, raisin eyes, and carrot fangs.
