My nephew and I planned this lunch. He wanted a King Cobra made out of spaghetti. Muddy water (chocolate milk) was the desired drink.
I don’t like snakes and only created this lunch with my nephew by his request. While researching “snake lunch” I came across many photos I would rather not have seen.
During my King Cobra research I found that they build nests out of sticks and leaves. I used a lined Japanese bento cup for the nest. We cut leaf shapes out of American cheese. Broken pretzel sticks serve as sticks. Green peas are the eggs.
Edible King Cobra Nest
I used kitchen scissors to cut a lasagna noodle for the snake head. I made a small hole with the tip of a knife and inserted a piece of Craisin. Since the King Cobra will eat other snakes, I used this photo to make a kiwi snake.
Snakes eating snakes
I wanted the desert to be easy. I bought Snack Wells Fudge Pretzels. I cut the Fudge Pretzels in half. Then I put melted chocolate in a Ziplock sandwich bag and cut a small piece off a corner. I piped chocolate to attach the fudge pretzels and made a head and tail. I used Writing Icing for the eye. Then I put the chocolate snake in the freezer to set.
My nephew enjoyed planning and eating this lunch.
