Halloween Breadstick Snakes
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons white sesame seeds
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ¼ teaspoon + ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
- ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon ice cold water
- 32 black sesame seeds for eyes
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Have a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
- Whisk together first 5 ingredients (flour through salt) in a medium bowl. Add butter and mix with your fingertips until evenly mixed and looks like sand. Add ice cold water and mix with your hands to get a slightly smooth dough (add ½-1 teaspoon additional water if required). The dough should be firm, yet smooth.
- Divide dough into 16 equal pieces. Roll each piece with the palm of hands on the kitchen counter to get a 16-inch (approximately) long rope of even thickness. Don’t bother if it breaks, just pinch it back together and proceed.
- Gently press one end of the rope flat, with a fingertip to get the shape of a snake’s head. Now, press two black sesame seeds into the face, to resemble eyes. (make sure, it sticks to the dough well). Roll the other end thin, to resemble a tail.
- Roll the snake into a loose coil (refer pictures). Rolling the coil LOOSE ensures, the snake crisps up evenly while baking. (Don’t bother making perfect circles. Remember, snakes do not coil in perfect circles).
- Gently transfer the snake with both hands, on to the prepared baking pan. Fix the coil again, if needed.
- Space them evenly apart. They do not expand while baking.
- Place pan in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until golden brown in color (rotate pan halfway through baking).
- Place pan on a wire rack to cool completely. Serve snakes with a dipping sauce like marinara, sun dried tomato hummus or Sriracha ranch.

Halloween is my favorite holiday too! These are the only snakes I would ever let get near me! LOL! The kids would definitely have a ball with those!
I'm totally with Kim, snakes do freak me out. So, I just restrict myself to these cuties:)
They turned out so cute! The dough was easy to make and work with. I used mixed peppercorns for the eyes so some have red, glowing eyes and others have ghostly green eyes and some deep black. lol
Thank you so much. I love the idea of mixed peppercorns, sure would made them more spookier.
