    startnover's Note:

    These are great for halloween parties! We gave them out one year to neighbors and it was so much fun to see their reaction. If you want a twist, make a shorter version and call them Gobblins toes. Just make them shorter and use plain almonds for the toe nails. Sprinkle with dried rosemary "toe hair" and it's complete!

      These were actually tasty, and they looked great! They were a hit at our Samhain celebration.

      These were fun to make and a good way to get the whole family involved. I had to dilute the food color with water to make it look red instead of dark brown. This is a good healthy addition to a sugar-filled holiday!
