Now we will focus on the snail portion of the party! My sister’s baby shower on Saturday just wouldn’t have been complete without these adorable snail dishes.
Pesto Snail Rolls– These were a huge hit and looked exactly like snails (the adorable cartoon ones of course!). We got the recipe here from Recipe.com
Chocolate Hazelnut Peanut Butter Pinwheel Cookies– These cookies looked like snail shells! They were a little labor intensive, but definitely worth it. The recipe is from Jif, found here. I ended up altering the recipe slightly to make the dough more manageable. I left out all the butter and added ¼ cup of flour to the peanut butter dough. I baked mine at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and they turned out perfect!
Turkey and Ham Pinwheels- We needed a few options that were a little more substantial, so we chose these Pesto Tortilla Pinwheels from Home Cooking Memories. These were great as is. We chose to make both turkey and ham pinwheels and added two toothpicks to act as antennae.
Mr. Snail’s Veggie Garden (Assorted Veggie Tray)- This is an obvious one. We always have a veggie tray at all of our parties; we just decided to give this one a fun nickname to fit into the theme!
