Bony Fingers

Melissa at the library made the most delicious treat for the program last night--Bony Fingers! Sounds terrible, tastes wonderful.

Here's how to make them for your ghoulish group:

Melt white chocolate. Dip large stick pretzels into the chocolate. Press a sliced almond or pumpkin seed onto the top of one side of the pretzel to be the fingernail. Let dry on waxed paper.

There you are--Bony Fingers! So simple, and absolutely delicious. I wish I had a photo, but I sort of...ate mine.

Here's an old favorite story to go with the recipe:

A boy was walking home from the store just as it was getting dark when he head something behind him. He turned around quickly and was scared out of his wits to see a horrible, bony creature following him. When the creature saw him staring, it said:

"Do you know what I can do with my long bony fingers and red, red lips?"

"No!" the boy shouted. He turned and ran as fast as he could, but he had to cross the street and there was a lot of traffic. As he waited for the traffic to pass, the creature caught up to him.

"Do you know what I can do with my long bony fingers and red, red lips?"

"Go away!" the boy screamed. He darted between cars, almost causing a crash, but at least he got away from the creature which was stranded on the other side of the road. He breathed a sigh of relief and slowed down. Just as he passed a shadowy doorway, something jumped out right in front of him! It was the creature, who looked at him with big staring eyes and said:

"Do you know what I can do with my long bony fingers and red, red lips?"

"AAAAGGGHHH!" The boy yelled as loud as he could and took off running again. But he tripped over a tree root and the creature caught up again. It stood right over top of him, pinning him to the ground with its bony legs and feet.

"DO YOU KNOW WHAT I CAN DO WITH MY LONG BONY FINGERS AND RED, RED LIPS!" the creature screamed at him.

The boy laid on the ground, blubbering. "I give up! What can you do with your long bony fingers and red, red lips?"

"THIS!"

(and do a raspberry by moving your finger up and down over your lips to make a blib-blib-blib sound).
