"These Halloween treats are scary enough and tasty enough for kids to love. They are also fairly healthy and the kids may want to get involved in the preparations."

creamy peanut butter
1 (15 ounce) package
sliced almonds, or as needed
plum jam, or as needed
What an awesome recipe! This is so easy to make and it's a great variation on the peanut butter candy (honey, powdered milk, and peanut butter) that my mom made us when I was a kid. Not only do these look great, the pretzel in the middle of the peanut butter mixture adds a great crunch. I used 1/2 sugar Smuckers strawberry jam for the blood and thought that the color was perfect. Thanks for the recipe! Note: I find that these are served best right out of the freezer or refrigerator. When I make them, I refrigerate so them right away so they keep their shape until serving time. They make a perfect Halloween treat or a great snack after a workout!
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 freezer and have to be eaten straight from the freezer as well, otherwise the shape will completely fall apart.
I would cut the recipe in half next time. It makes way to much peanut butter mixture. With my left over siting in the refrigerator for a few days I thought it tasted better.
This recipe was easy..(a bit time consuming) but worth every second. It was so much fun to serve and surprise my friends, coworkers and students with this freaky finger treat. The dough went a long way, I made almost 60 fingers (30 pretzel rods broken in half).
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.
