How to Make Frankenstein Fingers

These cool dipped pretzels are the perfect spooky snack for your kiddos. They will love how creepy they look and their friends will all be begging for one too!

To start with, you need the following items —

Start by melting your white candy melts. Once you get them melted, they will be super thick, so use the vegetable oil or coconut oil to thin it out a little. 

You want it to be thin enough to coat the pretzel rod, but thick enough to look like fingers. Now, add in your food coloring until you get the right consistency.

Start with green and then add some yellow to lighten it up. Once you do, put it in a deep glass. Take your pretzel rod and swirl it around until you coat the rod about halfway up.

Place on a silicone baking mat to let the coating chocolate harden a bit.

While it is hardening, add a slivered almond to the top to create a fingernail.

Once the coating hardens almost all the way, all you need to do is add some knuckles. Look at your own fingers and decide where the lines will go. It takes around 3 for each knuckle.

Now, let it finish drying completely. Once it does, you can move them to a jar for snack time later, or in a lunch box. I mean, what kid would not think this is the coolest snack on the planet??
