Easy Monster Fingers

Ingredients

  • Almond bark
  • green food coloring
  • red food coloring
  • pretzel rods
  • thinly sliced almonds

Instructions

  • Depending on how many fingers you're making, that will determine on how much almond bark you need. I made 30 fingers so I used 8oz of almond bark. The pretzel rods were 6 inches long, so I broke them in half. It doesn't half to be perfect! After all, when's the last time you saw a monster with a perfect manicure? ;)
  • If you make some a little shorter/longer than others - then you can rearrange them at the end of the process to make 'hands'.
  • Melt the almond bark according to the package directions. Add the food coloring with a 7:1 ratio. For example, for the 8oz of almond bar that I used - I added 14 drops of green & 2 of red of the gel food coloring.
  • Roll the now broken pretzel rods one at a time in the colored & melted bark. Coat them thoroughly all over, then use a fork to pick up. Using the fork, hold it over the bowl to allow the excess almond bark to drip off.
  • Apply a sliced almond sliver on the end of the pretzel rod while the coating is still un-set.
  • Roll the now broken pretzel rods one at a time in the colored & melted bark. Coat them thoroughly all over, then use a fork to pick up. Using the fork, hold it over the bowl to allow the excess almond bark to drip off.
  • Before making the knuckle lines, allow the pretzel rod to sit about 2 minutes. Using a toothpick, make 3 lines in the middle of the 'finger'. I started with a straight middle line, and then curved the top & bottom lines - sort of like a parenthesis with the straight line in the middle. After you draw each line, wipe off the toothpick with a paper towel for the best results.
  • Let set completely before serving or storing.
