Preheat oven to 450°F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Sprinkle work area with 1/2 cup sugar and lay puff pastry over top. Cover with the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Roll puff pastry out to a 12-inch rectangle, being sure to press the sugar into the dough.
Add some colored sugar along the longest side. Add 2 or 3 lines if you want colored snails.
Roll the puff pastry up along the long edge and use a sharp knife or dental floss to cut 1/2 inch sections. Place them on the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 6 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 400°F and carefully flip the cookies over. Continue to bake for another 5 to 6 minutes, watching them carefully so they do not burn.
Remove from oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack.
The sugar will be HOT, so be careful when handling right out of the oven.
Once cooled, attach the eyes with a dot of corn syrup. I used a toothpick to add the syrup. Decorate with a bow and serve them up!
