--------  ------------  --------------------------------    
                        To make dough:                      
   8      tablespoons   unsalted butter -- at room temperature
   3      tablespoons   honey                               
   1      teaspoon      vanilla extract                     
   1      cup           all-purpose flour                   
     1/2  teaspoon      salt                                
     1/2  teaspoon      vegetable oil                       
     1/2  cup           chocolate chips                     
                        To make sticky sauce:               
     1/2  cup           honey                               
   2      tablespoons   sugar                               
   2      tablespoons   ground cinnamon                     
                                                            
	Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  In a medium bowl, mash the butter and honey with a
fork until well blended. Gradually stir in the vanilla extract, flour and salt.  The mixture
should have a doughy consistency.  Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and store in the
refrigerator for 1 hour. Grease cookie sheets with the vegetable oil.  After an hour,
remove the dough from the refrigerator and separate it into pieces the size of golf balls. 
If the dough sticks to your hands, dip them in flour.  Roll out balls between your hands
into snakelike shapes, about the length and thickness of your pinky.  Separate each ball
into 4 smaller sections and roll each section into a snake.  Place snakes 1 inch apart on
cookie sheets.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the snakes begin to turn light brown. 
Carefully remove the cookie sheets from the oven and immediately remove the snakes
from the sheets to a platter.  Allow snakes to cool slightly and press 2 chocolate chip eyes
into the head of each snake.  Set aside until completely cooled.  To prepare sticky sauce,
mix honey, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Drizzle over the cooled snakes and
serve.
