Monster Fingers

Halloween is almost here and the ghouls and the goblins come out to play. You may be almost done with your decorating and if you're having a Halloween party, how about scaring up the fun with these spookactular treats. They are very easy to make and will delight the goblins who come out to play. Not to mention that they make a fun treat to eat as well.

Here's what you'll need.


Almond Bark

Green food coloring

Red food coloring

Pretzel Rods

Sliced Almonds


Depending on how many fingers you are making will determine how much bark you need. I used 8 oz. of bark and made around 30 fingers.

The pretzel rods were about 6 inches long. I broke them in half. It doesn't need to be perfect, you do however need different lengths when arranging them to look like actual fingers on hands.

Melt the Almond bark according to the package directions.

Add food Coloring 7:1 ratio green to red. For the 8 oz. of bark I used 14 green, 2 red.

Roll the now broken Pretzel rods one at a time into the bark. Roll them and using a fork pick them up letting some of the excess drip off. Carefully lay the coated pretzel onto a sheet of waxed paper.

Apply a sliced almond to the end of the pretzel while the coating is still melted.

Before making the knuckle lines, let the pretzel set about 2 minutes. Using a toothpick make three lines in the middle of the pretzel. I started with a straight middle line then curved lines above and below, like parenthesis around the middle line. I recommend wiping the toothpick off after each line. If the coating sticks out after making the lines smooth it by running the toothpick gently down the side.

Let the coating set completely. Store in an air tight container in a cool place.

You are now set for a spooktacular Halloween treat!
