    How to make it 

  • 1

    Prepare dough and divide in two. Tint each with different shades of green food coloring, knead well and chill according to recipe.

  • 2

    Take a small amount of dough and roll with palm on hard surface to create a snake shape. Repeat with the other shade of green dough. Snip both ends of the “snakes” so each green snake is the same size. Twist two green snakes together and gently smush ends to make a circle. Bake according to the recipe and let cool. Tie ribbon bows around the wreaths, if desired.
