It took us a little while to get the hang of making Snaky Bread without having it fall into the fire. Dustin says the secret is to make sure the dough is firmly attached to the stick and to keep your snake a reasonable size.
2 cups Indispensable Biscuit Mix, (or store-bought equivalent)
1/4 cup sesame seeds, (optional)
1/2 cup water
Stir together the biscuit mix, sesame seeds and water to form a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a couple of minutes, until smooth. If necessary, add a bit more biscuit mix to the dough, until it is no longer sticky.
Now, here's the fun part. Pinch off a hunk of dough (about the size of a golf ball) and roll it into a long, ½-inch (1 cm) thick rope. Wind the rope in a spiral around a freshly cut green stick, squishing the ends tightly against the stick to hold the dough in place. Cook, turning occasionally, over open fire, until crisp and browned on all sides. If you're very outdoorsy, you can rig up a brace made from a forked branch to prop up the cooking stick over the fire.
Very carefully (it's hot, kids!) slide your Snaky Bread off the stick to eat.
