  • Fold the other side over and press the dough to seal in the filling.
  • Lightly beat 1 egg yolk.
  • Brush the egg yolk over the top of the dough to "glue" the pieces together.
  • Fold the dough lengthwise in half again, pinching the seam to seal.
  • Taper one end of the snake to make a tail and form the other end into a head.
  • Beat the remaining 2 egg yolks and separate into 3 small bowls.
  • Add food coloring to each bowl to make colors of your choice.
  • Using a pastry brush (or paintbrush), paint stripes, dots or the design of your choice onto the snake with the egg yolk mixture.
  • Transfer the snake to the foil-lined baking sheet.
