Here is a great snack to make that corresponds with multiple Bible stories such as the Creation and the apostle Paul and the viper, or make some after studying about reptiles in science. Enjoy this sssavory sssnack…
To make these, you will need the following:
- wooden skewers
- 1 can (11 oz.) of breadstick dough (or crescent roll dough may be substituted)
- raisins or craisins
- ground cinnamon
- cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray wooden skewers with cooking spray so the “snakes” will slide off easily. Wrap a strip of dough around a skewer, pinching one end for a tail and leaving a large head on the other end.
Next, press two raisins or craisins onto the head for eyes. Some may come loose during baking, but they can be placed back on the head or secured with a small drop of honey after removing them from the oven.
Cute, huh? Next, sprinkle some ground cinnamon along the snakes’ bodies.
Now they are ready to bake. Bake in a preheated oven for 13-18 minutes. You will want them to be nicely browned, but not overdone. When finished baking, pick up a skewer and carefully slide the snake off.
Now it’s snack time!
This recipe is featured in the “Hearts-at-Home” Cookbook in the Baking with the Bible section. There are multiple Bible stories that this would make a great snack for: Creation, Garden of Eden, Noah’s Ark, Aaron’s rod turning into a serpent at Pharaoh’s court, the bronze serpent, and the apostle Paul being bit by a viper. This could also correspond with some science lessons or just be a fun snack to make because the pictures make it look so cool to try!
