2 Halloween Treats

I found these 2 adorable finger foods that I will be making for my son's halloween party Friday.  They are too cute not to share with you all.  I love this website, they always have such cute and simple ideas! What will you be making?

Cheese-Finger Food

What you'll need
  • Mozzarella string cheese
  • Green bell pepper
  • Cream cheese
  1. Wearing plastic gloves or sandwich bags over your hands to keep the cheese as smudge-free as possible, use a paring knife (parents only) to cut each string in half and then carve a shallow area for a fingernail just below the rounded end of each half.
  2. Mark the joint right below the nail as well as the knuckle joint by carving out tiny horizontal wedges of cheese, as pictured.
  3. For the fingernails, slice a green bell pepper into 3/8-inch-wide strips. Set the strips skin side down on your work surface and trim the pulp so that it's about half as thick. Then cut the strips into ragged-topped nail shapes and stick them in place at the ends of the fingers with dabs of cream cheese.

Forked Eyeballs

What you'll need
  • 2 (11-ounce) bags white chocolate chips
  • 12 doughnut holes
  • Semisweet chocolate chips
  • Tube of red decorator frosting
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  1. To coat a dozen doughnut holes, melt the white chocolate chips with the oil over low heat (and keep the chocolate warm while you work). With a fork, spear each doughnut hole and submerge it in the melted chocolate to coat it, then gently tap off any excess.
  2. Stick a semisweet chocolate chip with its point cut off onto each doughnut hole, cut end first. Place the forks (handle side down) in a mug and allow the chocolate coating to harden.
  3. Use a tube of red decorator frosting to add squiggly veins radiating out from the pupils.

Oh my goodness! Those are so cute! My kids would freak out if I made these. Especially the fingers. I think I'll do it this weekend, only using a red pepper. How fun!
