I'm officially changing my name to Halloween Queen. I had way too much fun making all the Halloween recipes you've seen this week. I have no idea where some of my ideas come from, but I was fooling around in the kitchen and before you know it I was making a s'mores rattlesnake.
I wanted it to be easy enough for a kid to make with a little help. Take a large square of graham cracker and cut the corners off to make a diagonal shaped head. Cut graham cracker squares down the center into rectangles. Cut a tail piece out of a rectangular piece of graham cracker.
Then blister the top of your marshmallows under a broiler or use a kitchen torch. Just be careful not to melt the marshmallows, just give your snake a nice sunburn. Attach a few snake scales (toasted sliced almonds) with the peanut butter in the piping bag. Give your snake a couple of candy eyes and a licorice mouth.
I decided to have my rattler snake around the celery and carrot sticks but you could have him slither anywhere you'd like.
I have to get on costume making duty for the next couple of days, but hope to have the final two recipes up for you next week so we can keep this party going.
