Holidays, and you never know who will drop in. I bought several packets of lollies and poured them into a large bowl, mixing them like a salad. The snakes are the garnish on top. Actually, although I bought these for the younger visitors, I can see that they will please all ages. We're going away to Barwon Heads for a couple of days, and I think I might steal a few (handfuls). 18 yo son is staying home and planning a dinner party, which will be his culinary initiation. Maybe I'll include some photos (I'm sure he'll take them) once I'm back Sunday night.
