This recipe could be made with any type of dough. Homemade or store bought, fresh or frozen will all yield delicious results. Simply roll into a rope and wrap around a greased chopstick or a skewer. The tighter you wrap, the more swirly your snakes will be.

Continue your creative cooking with some fun toppings. We used sesame seeds and poppy seeds, but parmesan cheese or spices would be fun. Think chili powder and cumin or italian seasoning. Ooooh, my sweet tooth wants cinnamon sugar with raisin eyes!
