Snails Cute Enough to Eat

Today was my day to bring snacks for Nicholas' class. I always have fun making special snacks for the class. This time I made little breadstick snails. I used a package of refrigerated breadstick dough and unrolled them as usual. I brushed them with melted butter then rolled up one end so that it made the spiral of the shell then I tucked the other end under to make the head. Then I took some slivers from a carrot to use for antennae. I also included some marinara sauce for dipping. The kids loved it. They had fun playing with their snails. Did you know that snails can talk? Apparently these can! What I like best is that they all got a healthy dose of vegetables from the marinara sauce and they didn't even know it was good for them!
