Every day I ask my daughter what she wants to be for Halloween.  Each time my question has been met with “Batman.”  Now, I have no problem with her dressing up as Batman, but my question is, how does she even know who Batman is?  I mean my TV is only ever on Disney Jr when she is around.But a little over a week ago, she got her ears pierced and now she is telling me she wants to be a princess.  We won’t get her costume quite yet, since she could change and decide to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle since they are on her new package of Gogurts.  Fingers crossed we stay away from any character in Frozen!  Except Olaf, I think I would go to blows with another mom over an an Olaf costume

These were really easy to make and my 4-year got in on the action.  I cut the nail beds with a paring knife and used a pizza cutter to strip the crescent dough, but she had fun adding ketchup and wrapping them up. I love hotdogs, so making Bandaged Fingers Halloween Hot Dogs was just too much to pass up, even if they are a bit creepy.

These would be great for dinner right before your kiddos head out to trick or treating or if you’ve got a Halloween party to host/attend. Bandaged Fingers Halloween Hot Dogs are destined to freak every one.

  • Ketchup

Instructions

  1. Using a paring knife, slice a square into the top of each hotdog.
  2. Pull the casing off, exposing the meat.
  3. Slice notches throughout the hotdog to look like knuckle joints.
  4. Separate the crescent dough and slice it into thin strips.
  5. Wrap 2-4 strips around each hotdog, depending on how long each strip is.
  6. Make that as tight or loose fitting as you’d like.
  7. Repeat this for each hotdog.
  8. Place each “finger” on a foil-lined baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  9. Squirt ketchup in strategic spots along the “bandages” and “finger.”
  10. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes, or until the dough has turned golden brown.
  11. Add more ketchup to enhance the “still bleeding” look.

    My daughter walked up behind me while I was reading this and that they were real. She wanted to know why you’d actually eat real fingers. They are life like and fun for Halloween parties. I love Christmas too, but Halloween is so much fun.

    I don’t usually comment on recipes, or especially recipes that are as much a craft as a recipe, but I love Halloween too and those are positively perfect. Love them scary little fingers…munch munch. Cheers

    Totally gross, Michelle! I dig it, though, and now have them on my recipe list. Even better would be to make these on April 8, May 9 or today, when a severed finger isn’t part of the party plan!
