I love crafts and I love science, so I thought this was super cute and would be really fun to make for any mad science themed event. (Who wants to co-host this party with me?) A recipe for Petri Dish Jello was featured over at the blog Sugar Cloth. Also, notice how a major ingredient for this is sprinkles? YeaI like that too.
(For the kids) Breadstick Snails Heat to 375. Unroll dough and separate into strips. Spread strips with pesto or seasoned butter and roll up into a coil, leaving a curved end, so it looks like the head of the snail. Secure with a toothpick. Place upright on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Poke holes for antennae; insert two carrot slivers.
