Snake Cookies

Did anyone see that movie “Snakes On A Plane” ?

I have not.

But, I know that in the movie a flight attendant microwaves a snake. And one of the buttons on the microwave says ‘Snake’.

Ever seen a snake microwaved? Don’t try this at home kids.

Finally, I’ve shared this photo before, but it is screaming to be included here.

Not to be confused with:

Love this.

I think I’ve managed the equivalent of jumping the shark here.

Enough! Let’s Bake.

These are cute little fellows that will keep you company for countless hours, until you eat them.

    Snakes are elongate, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. Like all squamates, snakes are ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales. ;
