    Ducky's Note:

    I saw Paula Deen make this on Foodtv for a Halloween show and it looked like so much fun. DS and I did have a blast making it. DS thought it was so great to have a snake for dinner. More fun with food! :) Change the meats & cheeses to whatever tickles your fancy. I mostly "eyeballed" when making this so not sure if I used the exact amounts specified. I didn't need a whole bell pepper so got a couple of strips from the grocery salad bar. Now what to do with the rest of the jar of olives!?!

      This is GREAT for Halloween! Paula Deen calls this Snake Bites, go over to the Food Network site to see the cool pic! I have used many different fillings, it is very versatile. I always use 2 cans of cresent rolls, otherwise I don't think all of the fillings would fit. I have made this with my nieces and nephews and we had a GREAT time! Thanks for posting, Ducky.

      Huge hit for my pre-halloween dinner for my family. I always try to made a fun "different" meal before we carve pumpkins and this is what i served. My 5 yr old was speechless when I set this on our The kids thought this was great and it tasted great too. I will repeat this over and over again but it wont be as funny as the first time I served this. I used 3 colors and painted stripes, it looked so real. Thank you for making our meal a fun one....Stephanie
