Say hello to the easiest appetizer recipe you’ll ever make. These Breadstick Rattle Snakes aren’t just cute, they are delicious. And easy. Did we mention easy, because they are SO easy.
First, you’ll need the RSVP Round Bamboo Skewers. Wrapping the dough around these skewers creates the squiggly, slithery shape of the snakes. If you want a longer slither, you can combine a few of them together before wrapping the dough around them. Just make sure that the skewers are well oiled so you can remove them easily when they’re done baking.
Don’t forget to use our recipe for Homemade Everything Bagel seasoning to really round out those tails!
Once you’ve removed the skewers from the rattlers, add a touch of cute with the chili pepper tongues! You can always substitute out the chili peppers for red peppers or something with a little less spice.
Serve these little Breadstick Rattle Snakes alongside a nice hot cup of Tomato Soup for a great kid-friendly lunch. Because nothing makes kids (or really cool adults) happier than being able to play with their food.
