After rolling dough all the way to the other side, place the ‘snake’ so that the seam is down and does not show.

Pinch one end to make the tail .

My very handsome sous-chef (my hubby Stan) brushed the snake with the melted garlic butter and decorated the boazone by…

Dropping green food coloring randomly on the snake,
Use a paint brush to take it down the sides.

With the egg yolk, brush it sporadically around the green streaks.

After the snake is baked and cooked through, take a piece of pepperoni and cut off two sides.

Then snip towards the middle in two places to form a tongue.
We found the boa looked much better if waiting until the snake was cooked to add the tongue and the eyes.

Taking a knife, cut circles and place the olives inside for the eyes.
