"These Halloween treats are scary enough and tasty enough for kids to love. They are also fairly healthy and the kids may want to get involved in the preparations."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Mix peanut butter, powdered milk, and honey together in a bowl until mixture resembles a soft dough. This will be the 'flesh' of the fingers.
  2. Mold enough dough around each pretzel rod, making sure to cover the ends. The pretzels will be the 'bones' of the fingers.
  3. Use the tip of a teaspoon the make marks on the 'flesh' similar to knuckles.
  4. Push 1 sliced almond onto 1 end of each 'finger' to resemble a finger nail.
  5. Place jam in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in microwave until softened, 20 to 30 seconds. Dip the end opposite the 'finger nail' into the jam for the 'blood'.

  • Cook's Note:
  • I have always used homemade plum jam for the blood. It has just the right color and has tiny bits in it that really look good.

What an awesome recipe! This is so easy to make and it's a great variation on the peanut butter candy (honey, powdered milk, and peanut butter) that my mom made us when I was a kid. Not only do these look great, the pretzel in the middle of the peanut butter mixture adds a great crunch. I used 1/2 sugar Smuckers strawberry jam for the blood and thought that the color was perfect. Thanks for the recipe! Note: I find that these are served best right out of the freezer or refrigerator. When I make them, I refrigerate so them right away so they keep their shape until serving time. They make a perfect Halloween treat or a great snack after a workout!

I would cut the recipe in half next time. It makes way to much peanut butter mixture. With my left over siting in the refrigerator for a few days I thought it tasted better.


This recipe was easy..(a bit time consuming) but worth every second. It was so much fun to serve and surprise my friends, coworkers and students with this freaky finger treat. The dough went a long way, I made almost 60 fingers (30 pretzel rods broken in half).
