If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know that Halloween is absolutely one of my favorite times out of the year.  And while I like to create all levels of spookiness with my content, I think I have the most fun creating creepy recipes!

Like look at these prosciutto and mozzarella “fingers!”  They would make a perfectly creepy appetizer to serve alone, with crackers, or on a char-boo-terie board!  They’re so simple to put together, too.  All you need is a package of mozzarella string cheese, sliced prosciutto, and some almonds.

Start this recipe by unwrapping the string cheese.  This will probably be the hardest part of the recipe, to be honest.  Then, take a slice of prosciutto and wrap it around each string cheese.

We’re almost done!  Now, we’re going to cut a small slit towards the top of the mozzarella.  Now, we’re going to take an almond (whole or sliced) and push it into the slit to create a fingernail.

If you have a nut allergy, consider using a halved olive in place of the almond to create the fingernail.  I did just that when I made these Crispy Chicken Halloween Witch Fingers!
