  • 1 package Pretzel Rods
  • 1 package green Wilton Candy Melts or 1 package white chocolate chips & candy food coloring.
  • Toasted slivered almonds or plain slivered almonds - toasted almonds are a little darker.


  1. Melt the Candy Melts or white chocolate chips per package directions
  2. if using white chocolate chips, add candy food coloring until you get the desired color.
  3. Dip the pretzel rods in the melted candy then place on a cooling rack, waxed paper or parchment paper.
  4. Let the candied pretzel rods dry 15 seconds then press a slivered almond into the tip to resemble a fingernail.
  5. Allow the fingers to partially dry, then use a toothpick to "draw" knuckles on the fingers.
  6. Let them dry and harden completely, then place in an airtight container until ready to serve.
  7. *To speed up the hardening process, place the fingers in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
  8. Enjoy!
