  • Maraschino cherries (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa

  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup powdered milk
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • Mini M&M's or chocolate chips
Make Dough
  • Mix together the peanut butter and powdered milk. When this is thoroughly mixed, add in the honey and stir.
  • Add in the cocoa and stir. Add in the vanilla and stir. Add in the nuts and raisins (if you like them). Be sure to add each ingredient in the order that it is called for.
Form Dough Into Snakes
  • Pull apart small balls and roll between your hands to form snakes.

Refrigerate Snakes

Put your snakes on wax paper and refrigerate until they become firm. Now you're ready to hiss back and eat up those slithering snakes.
