Unroll the dough and press the seams together to form a rectangle. Use a butterfly cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Place these on a baking sheet. Roll the scraps into interesting shapes and place on pan as well.

Spread spiced butter evenly on each butterfly then sprinkle on parmesan cheese. Cut the snack stick in appropriate lengths and press a piece down into the middle of each butterfly.
