A Ssss-snack for St. Patrick's Day

I happened to run across this idea at Family Fun and immediately thought it would make a perfect snack for the feast of St. Patrick, since "pious legend credits St. Patrick with banishing snakes from the island, chasing them into the sea."  Regardless of whether or not this legend is true, St. Patrick is the patron saint against snakes, fear of snakes, and snake bites, making this an appropriate snack in honor of his feast day!

Cucumber Snakes


Red Pepper
Hummus or Ranch Dip, optional


Slice and arrange the Cucumber slices as shown, then add an olive slice for the eye, a red pepper tongue, and a snake pit of hummus or dip.

*If you'd like to make a candy type treat, here is an idea for some cute Slithering Snake Suckers.

"He was a terror to any snake that came in his path, whether it was the cold, slimy reptile sliding along the ground or the more dangerous snake that oppresses men through false teachings. And he drove the snakes out of the minds of men, snakes of superstition and brutality and cruelty." ~ Arthur Brisbane

St. Patrick, Pray for Us!
