What’s new? How about a recipe for a ghoulish goody?

Big Foot’s cousin, swamp ape, inspired this recipe.

Swamp Creature Toes
1/2 cup whole skinless salted almonds
green food coloring
1 (12 oz) package semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
1 (6 oz) bag 8 inch pretzel rods (about 12)

Line 2 baking sheets with wax paper. Blend the almonds with about two drops of coloring in a small stainless steel or glass bowl. Stir well until all the nuts are coated. Spead the green almonds in a plate to dry.

Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and melt the chocolate in the microwave, Heat on high for 60 seconds and then stir well.

Break each pretzel rod into 3 pieces. Dip a broken piece about three-quarters of the way into the melted chocolate, leaving broken ends visible.

Lay the dipped pretzel on a prepared baking heet and lay a green almond in the top of the dipped end.

When all the toes are decorated, place ythe baking sheets in the refrigerator to firm the chocolate.

Serve cool.
