Though in some parts of the world snails are considered a delicacy I didn't think to cook ours, but we did make some edible snails! These ones are yummo!
- 300g water
- 2 tsp dry yeast
- 300g bakers flour
- 100g wholemeal flour
- 20g olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
If you don't have thermomix you could just heat your water and yeast in a microwave and then mix the reast of the ingredients with your hands, remember to knead well and let it sit in a warm place for 30min.
Once your dough has doubled it's size take a handfull off it and start rolling it into a long sausage. Once it's as long as you want then start rolling it in to a snail. Pretty simple, yeah? We used sultanas as eyes, but you don't need to if you don't want to. Some of them fell off anyway after they came out of the oven. Then bake for about 15min in 200 degrees.
If the ladybird bean bags were a bit too difficult for a three year old, then this one is just perfect. Emma was so into rolling the dough into snails and could do it all on her own. We finished these so quick as she made her ones and I made mine. Have a go and enjoy your own yummo snails!
