Halloween Recipes for Kids

Party Tip

When my kids were little, we always looked forward to the Halloween parties at their schools. We loved watching all the kids parade up and down the halls in their Halloween costumes while the parents giggled and looked on.

After the parade, the kids would all file back into their classrooms for the annual Halloween party. The room Moms were in charge of the party and would organize games, crafts and spooky snacks for the kids to enjoy.

I remember the difficulty of trying to find snacks that the kids would love, that were not too sugary and were easy to make.

Last night I was at an adult Halloween party and saw the cutest "fingers" made out of sugar cookie dough and they reminded me of all those classroom Halloween parties from so long ago. Boy do I wish I had an easy recipe like this years ago.

Although I no longer have to worry about classroom parties, I thought some of my Party Queen friends might benefit from this idea so I am passing it along. Here is a picture of my friend Gail holding one of them. You can see the platter in the bottom left corner of the picture. They are definitely not just for kid parties!

Halloween Sugar Cookie Fingers

Ghostly Halloween Fingers

  • One roll of sugar cookie dough
  • Slivered almonds
  • Food coloring (optional)

Roll out the dough until it is 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 3 or 4 inch slices and shape like fingers and place on cookie sheet. With a knife gently score the dough where the knuckles would be.

Press a almond into each finger to make the fingernails. If you want colored fingernails, use food coloring of your choice and paint it on the almonds.

Bake 4-6 minutes until lightly golden brown.
