- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 (8 count) package refrigerated breadstick dough (8 sticks)
- shortening or nonstick spray coating
- Stir together the nuts, sugar, and cinnamon.
- Remove 2 rolled-up breadsticks from the package. Place on waxed paper. Unroll 1 of the breadsticks. Cut a lengh of the dough for the bottom of the snail and press the longer end onto the end of the rolled-up breadstick. Wrap the unrolled breadstick around the rolled-up breadstick. Repeat with the remaining breadsticks.
- For the head, take the free end of the breadstick and roll it a little in the other direction. Affix a small rolled up piece of dough for antennae and remember to add a length of dough for the bottom of the snail.
- If you like, make smaller snails using 1 breadstick for each snail. Put the snail on a plate and Flatten the snail with your hand.

My 3 yr old DS and I made these tonight for dessert and they were a BIG hit! Not only were they easy enough he could help out...but he loved them! I may have sprinkled too much sugar/cinnamon mix on the top, but they taste great! We will make these again! Franklin is one of his favorite shows, and making "SNAIL" was top notch!! ;) Previous photo not posted, will try again once we get a better picture. Yours is terrific!
I made these yummies for snack for this weeks play group, the boys loved them! I made them with very little sugar (just enough to sprinklie on) and I ommitted the cinnamon (forgot it actually! oops) but I made a dip for them out of peanut butter and honey, heated in microwave, the boys were a sticky happy mess! Good post!
