Gruesome Finger Cookies
If you want spooky Halloween party foods you must make these gruesome finger cookies. I scare kids every year with these!
Materials: Finger cookie tray, green food coloring, raspberry jelly, shaved almonds, sugar cookie or cream cheese cookie dough
I used the cream cheese cookie recipe and they came out great! 2 1/4 cups flour, 3oz cream cheese, 1 tsp spoon vanilla, 1 egg yolk, 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup butter. Cream the sugar, butter, and cream cheese. Next, add vanilla and egg yolk, then add the flour
Step 1: Add a couple of drops of green food coloring to get the color you like. I only used a little so the fingers looked a little dirty.
Step 2: Sprinkle some flour into the cookie tray and bake. Check repeatedly until cookies look golden brown.
Step 3: When the cookies a completely cool, put a little jelly at the trip of the finger and place a shaved almond on top.
Lollipop Display Ideas
Kids love lollipops. Having a lollipop display would be an awesome addition to your Halloween party.
Lollipop Display idea #1
To make the above display I purchase a witches cauldron. I placed a round styrofoam ball (purchased on Amazon) inside the cauldron. I purchased a large bag of blow pops and inserted them into the styrofoam ball. All finished easy peasy!
Lollipop Display Idea #2
I used this lollipop display for younger children. I’m always afraid to give young children blow pops because of the gum. For the first step, you will need tissue paper. I used purple. I used enough purple tissue paper to fill the cauldron to halfway. Next, I used the three bags of candy corn I purchased and filled up the cauldron to the top. Last I put lollipops and spiders on top.
