    WiGal's Note:

    Green Halloween breadsticks from TOH-has a creepy picture! They're best when served right out of the oven because the cheese is still warm and soft. Serve with marinara dipping sauce.

      This is a great & fun recipe! I love the colour - just perfect! I used cheddar instead of parmesan cheese. I made these for a Halloween Party at the kids' nutfree school, so I could not use almonds for nails; instead I used some red icing thinned with water. I know - bread and icing don't really go together but as far as I'm concerned - when Halloween comes around the ghosts enter the kitchen and weird things are known to happen. The fingers were a bit time consuming, because I had to re-shape them after they had been in the oven for 5 min. The dough puffed up so much that you could barely see any knuckles or nail impressions I had made, so after 5 min I removed the fingers and redid the forming of nails and knuckles. I would say that you can easily stretch this recipe to 40-50 breadsticks if you want long snarly fingers; mine sort of came out a bit like giants' fingers because the dough rose quit a bit while baking. Next time I would make the fingers longer and skinnier. Oh yes - the flavour :) was great, too! I sent the fingers to school with a side of spreadable cream cheese and cheddar cubes for an easy and fairly healthy snack tray at school. Made for PRMR.
