Spooky Cheesy Fingers
Although I can’t believe the year has gone by so fast, this time of the year tends to be the funnest. We have Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Carin’s B-Day, and of course New Years. All of these events squished into three short months. This is the time of year when I will more than likely gain a couple of pounds with all the food and special treats we tend to make and eat.
Speaking of treats, I was thinking of all the cool and fun things we had made for the kids last year. And since Halloween is just around the corner, I was thinking of making some spooky cheesy fingers that You & The Kids can have fun with. The string cheese converted into witch like looking fingers are not only ghoulish looking but are yummy too.
We slipped these fingers into Mady and Peter’s school lunches today. Hopefully they don’t scream as loud as they did last year when it’s lunch time at school;)
Estimated cost for these spooky cheesy fingers was $0.65 per finger (makes 12). This price will vary by brand, store, and geographical cost of living factors.
- 1 bag string cheese (12 individually wrapped) @ $3.49
- 1 8 ounce cream cheese @ $1.79
- 1 red bell pepper @ $1.29
- 1 green bell pepper @ $1.29
What Ya Do:
- Using a knife, slice out a fingernail size piece off of the top of one end of the string cheese. Round out the top corners forming a finger tip.
- Cut thin like slits below the fingernail and cut out curves toward the middle of the string cheese. This will resemble finger bends. You can also cut round forms beneath each finger bend. By doing this, it will allow you to overlap some fingers over each other.
- Cut various size finger nails (some sharp, some round, some long, some short) from both the green and red bell pepper.
- Place a small amount of cream cheese onto the fingernail of the string cheese.
- Place a red bell pepper nail over the cream cheese.
- Complete all 12 fingers and eat’em up before they crawl away.
