Chinese New Year - Year of the Snake

I will have new ideas daily so be sure to check back.  You can also get some great ideas from last year's Chinese New Year party here.

Make this lucky little snake cookie out of a store bought fortune cookie (I used La Choy brand fortune cookies)!  Spray cookie with edible red coloring mist and let dry.  Add candy eyes and a Fruit by the Foot  for the body and attach with red candy melts or melted chocolate.  I opened a couple of cookies and took the fortune out, cutting it to look like a snake's tongue and attached with red candy melts.

Cupcakes topped with cute snakes made from licorice wheels and a jujube on top.  Add confetti eyes and dot with a black edible marker.

A brownie snake can only mean good luck!  Yummy chocolate snake made from brownie bites, a little edible gold glitter and jumbo heart sprinkles.  The eyes are Necco wafers topped with brown M&Ms.  So easy and adorable too!

A pretty little treat made from gold Sixlet candies and a fan made from a red fruit roll up.

A Rice Krispie Treat covered in a red fruit roll up and decorated with jumbo pink flower and white pearl sprinkles.  Draw branches with a brown edible marker and frame the pretty little edible picture with black licorice!

Fire crackers!  Actually graham crackers frosted and decorated with red licorice and a black licorice lace.  Sprinkle with edible gold glitter for extra sparkle!

Happy Chinese New Year!
