Halloween Decorations - Icky Bugs

Water Bugs and Roaches

Water Bugs

Makes 5 Bugs

  • 5 Kalamata olives
  • 30 long fresh rosemary leaves
  • 10 short fresh rosemary leaves
  • These have just enough zippy flavor that you might stick out your tongue and hope for more. For each bug, roll 6 rosemary leaves between your fingers so they have a long, rounded shape.

  • Pierce the olive with a toothpick in 3 places on each side for legs. Insert 1 rosemary leaf into each hole.

  • Insert 2 short rosemary leaves in front for the antennae.


Makes 5 Roaches

  • 4 teaspoons cream cheese, softened, plus more for attaching legs and head
  • 1 T. chopped walnuts
  • 5 pitted dates
  • 3 dried cherries
  • These roaches are sweet, crunchy and curiously chewy. To create your
    own, stir together cream cheese and walnuts.

  • Cut 1 cherry in half and cut 6 thin legs from 1 half; use the other half to cut 5 roach heads.

  • Cut 12 thin legs from each of the 2 remaining cherries.

  • For each roach, pipe the cream cheese mixture into the hole at one end of the date. Attach the head and legs to each roach using more cream cheese.
