  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.

Very cute idea for Halloween, and the taste was decent. The kids got a kick out of them. But what a greasy gooey mess trying to cover the pretzels. They needed to go immediately into the free...

These were so much fun for the kids and I to make!! Just the right balance of creepy & tasty!!

These are a much healthier version than the chocolate ones. They also look very realistic and taste great! Thanks for this recipe, can't wait to take it to my party tonight!!

The kids beg for these every year.
