Healthy Halloween Recipe - Cheese Finger Food

This is a fun recipe to try for your child's Halloween party! And, the best part is that it is a healthy snack that the kids will love!  We need to get our kids away from all of the candy and sugar associated with Halloween. 

Cheese Finger Food


Mozzarella string cheese

Green bell pepper

Cream cheese


Wearing plastic gloves or sandwich bags over your hands to keep the cheese as smudge-free as possible, use a paring knife (parents only) to cut each string in half and then carve a shallow area for a fingernail just below the rounded end of each half.
Mark the joint right below the nail as well as the knuckle joint by carving out tiny horizontal wedges of cheese, as pictured.
For the fingernails, slice a green bell pepper into 3/8-inch-wide strips. Set the strips skin side down on your work surface and trim the pulp so that it's about half as thick. Then cut the strips into ragged-topped nail shapes and stick them in place at the ends of the fingers with dabs of cream cheese.
