I cooked these up for Halloween but any children's party is a great occasion for these little creatures to make an appearance.
Looking a little like slippery slithery snakes these edible mythical cereal creatures are actually nice and crispy sweet to eat. They definitely put a little healthier twist on children's Halloween party snack food. The munchkins in your home are going to be waiting anxiously to gobble these guys up.
These Rice Krispies critters are made basically the same as other Rice Krispies treats except that these snake treats include the yummy sweet taste of M&M's for their eyes.
Perfect for an after dinner Halloween dessert for kids and adults. Pull out your old witch's pot and let's brew up a batch of reptiles to grace your child's party table.

Got Fussy Kids in Your Family? These Tips May Help.
Kids love finger foods and sauces. If you have difficulty getting your kids to eat foods that are good for them there are a few simple ways to make that food more attractive.
1. Turn it into finger food. Cut that food into strips or itty bitty tiny pieces so it feels like a snack rather than a meal.
2. Put a bowl or two of sauce on their plate to dunk that yucky food into. Food is more fun when you get to play with it and sometimes just hiding the stuff you don't like in stuff that you do like makes the entire meal taste better.
3. Keep it in perspective. Serve smaller portions and a wider selection of food items so eating the item you don't like doesn't seem like such a big deal.
