Happy Halloween, delicious bread stick snakes excellent idea for your party table.
Today is Halloween, my kids are excited too much to celebrate Halloween, they were already planning for which costumes they are going to wear for months. How to decorate their little pumpkin? This year they got two days to wear their Halloween costumes. Yesterday in our neighborhood there was a Halloween party, it was a small gathering with food, fun and games. My kids thoroughly enjoyed as they played lots of games and my son even enjoyed dancing. Because of their enthusiasm towards Halloween I too started making treats. This “Bread Stick Snakes” is one of them. I made chocolate Fig mice too.
I tried this Bread sticks snake from Country living magazine. I tried twice, the first time using homemade pizza dough. I was thinking it will be similar to bread stick bone using homemade dough which I had made earlier. I think I did too much curling and resulted in snakes that were too curly. And they turned out to be snakes that are bulky looking and getting too much to eat. So decide to make it the second time using store-bought pizza dough as original recipe said.
I would love to make simple treats for kids without loaded sugar as they are getting a sugar overload with candy which they collect during trick-o-treat. My kids like bread sticks especially those we get from Pizza Hut, so bread sticks are safe bet so decide to try them. I like to serve them with marinara sauce instead of soup. Because my daughter likes to dip in marinara and then eat it, she told me mama I am going to eat tail of the snake and then head. It was really funny.
It is really simple to make, first cut the refrigerated pizza dough into 2 inch slices of 12 pieces and then try to roll them onto chop stick, make sure to make less twist otherwise your snake will too curly that is what I learned from my mistakes. Also baking time is different from the recipe so watch for your oven as they are different. Kids will enjoy these spooky cute treat.
