In my family, we usually break out all of the chocolate dipped goodies for Christmas, but there is no reason not to bust them out for Halloween as well, and chocolate dipped pretzels can be made into so many deliciously spooky foods… such as Frankenstein’s Fingers!

Franken Fingers

You will Need:

  • Pretzel Rods
  • White Almond Bark
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Black Food Pen (optional)

Instructions

1. Break the almond bark into chunks and melt in the microwave. I usually do 30 second spurts, melting in between until its close to being fully melted, and 20 second increments until its perfect.

2. Once the almond bark is fully melted, add the green food coloring and stir in until you get it the color you desire.

3. Dip your pretzels! I actually used a spatula to scoop the almond bark up onto the pretzel, then twisted the pretzel as I used the spatula to work the excess almond bark back down the pretzel.

4. Lay your pretzels on wax paper and place an almond slice at the end of each “franken finger” as the fingernail. Allow almond bark to harden.

5. Once they have hardened (I gave it an hour), use a butter knife to make three scratches in the almond bark perpendicular to the pretzel in two different places to represent knuckles. If you would like, you can also use a food pen to color in the scratches and make them more visible.

6. Om nom nom nom. Enjoy!

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • She’s too cute to be a scary clown, unlike her counterparts. The green stripes are in reference to Cringe’s twin, Sinister the Clown. The masks are the same, but slightly different pain, I might have to give Sinister some love as well. #hauntlife #clown #clownmakeup #sfxmua
  • Another makeup I did before haunt started that I wanted to get up@yet this year. I was trying to force myself to do makeup outside of my haunt duties, so i went for recreating one our our actual clowns, Cringe! I believe his actual mask was done by Shattered FX. #clown #clownmakeup #sfxmua
  • You can almost ignore the lip placement on this one. What look should I do next? Ive been in a dark place for the last two months, and while I’m feeling like myself again enough to want to do something, I’m also thinking it won’t necessarily be a “bright” or cheery look. Maybe I’ll surprise myself. #grinch #grinchmas #grinchmakeup #sfxmua
  • You guys are so wonderful! I’ve gotten great feedback from friends, and I’m starting to see past what bothered me before. I need to start loving myself a bit more, and stop letting my self doubt from getting in my way. #grinchmas #grinchmakeup #sfxmua
  • Ever create something that didn’t live up to your expectations, so you didn’t share it? When I did my Grinch last year, I wanted to take inspiration from one of my favorite horror artists, @mrrevenge, and modify that grin onto what I already had. It was 2am when I started making my evil version, so i took a shortcut by trying to save most of my cheek wrinkles, and it caused the mouth placement to be off. Looking back now, I still wish I had done the mouth differently, but I can always try it again. #progressnotperfection #nofilter #sfxmua #grinch
  • Finishing up the Shego 3pack in the hopes I will do something new here in the next week. I’ve been utterly exhausted since haunt... I have too much of my introvert self up in the past 5 months and it’s taken everything I had. The last month has been good recovery. I’m working on setting new goals and starting to feel excited about makeup related things again. Take care of yourselves  introverts. #selfcare #introvert #hauntlife
  • “I got an early parole, only here to say hi.” Can’t stop Shego feom@coming back atcha! Ok, serious question, who wants to see a glam Dr. Drakken? #kimpossible #shego #halloween
  • Got to work with my sister on a test makeup for her Halloween costume and we both did Shego makeup together! I know she has black hair, but my only black wig just wasn’t working. She did fantastic for her first time! #shego #kimpossible #sistermakeup
  • When you are so busy with #hauntlife you forget you have Instagram. I’m pulling together a video shoot for our haunt trailer video and an #sfxmakeup internship for aspiring artists. I sleep too, sometimes.
