Snails for dessert!

I've attached a photo of a dessert I made for my wee brothers and sisters recently. It's a blurry cellphone photo, so it's not that great, but you can get the gist of the dessert. The kids loved it - snails for pudding!

To make it, microwave one packet of jelly (jello?) in 1/2 cup of water for 30 seconds. Add 1 1/2 cups marshmellows, and microwave for another minute until everything is melted. Pour into a well-greased square cake tin, and allow to set. Roll up, slice into individual 'snails', add marshmellow heads and liquorice antennae, and serve on chocolate pudding.

Kinda cute

Ha, ha! Me too, knight. I waited until now to see how many responses given.

Clever idea, stassie. Thanks for not grossing me out.

OMG, these are just too cute. I love it. Reminds me of a dessert I saw on the food netwook a couple of years ago. Cut 4 inch "rounds" of cheesecake with a cookie cutter. Make a depression in the middle and invert a canned apricot in the depression. Looks just like a fried egg. I envy creative people.

I'm going to have to make the snails for my card club.
