These doctored up string cheese snacks make the perfect Frankenstein fingers for your Halloween bash!



  • 1 Package Mozzarella String Cheese
  • 1 Green Bell Bepper
  • 1 Package Softened Cream Cheese


  • Wearing plastic gloves or sandwich bags over your hands to keep the cheese as smudge-free as possible, use a paring knife 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 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.
