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.
