Dead Witch Fingers

Halloween is so much fun!  My mom would make these for our annual Halloween parties and serve them with other fun goulish gourment treats, like this.  Can you imagine how much fun these were for us as kids??  Your babies will have a blast with them, too.  And not only do they look the part, they are super tasty, too!  You just can't go wrong with peanut butter and pretzles, even if they are in the form of bloody fingers.

{What you need}   
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup caro syrup
1/4 cup powdered milk
food coloring, green or orange
1 package large pretzle rods, each broken in half
1 package slithered or whole almonds
red cake gell

Mix a few drops of food coloring with caro syrup until it is evenly colored.  Combine the PB, sugar, syrup, and milk powder in a medium bowl and mix together to form a dough.  Take a small amound of dough and mold it around a pretzle rod half to look like a finger.  Leave a little of the pretzle hanging out the end so it looks like a broken bone.  Take an almond and stick it on the end of the finger.  Take a butter knife and make little indentations for the knuckles.  Add the red gel wherever you would like so it looks bloody.  A little gourment gore for you and your little gouls and boils!
