Total Time:
10 mins


  • Pepperidge Farm Creme-Filled Pirouette Cookies

  • 1 square of vanilla almond bark candy

  • 5 green Jordan almonds

  • Red lace candy

  • Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme Bites


Cut the Pirouette Cookies as follows:

  1. For the bottom row of bones, cut three 2-1/2-inch lengths and two 2-inch lengths (pinky and thumb); for the next row, cut four 1-1/2-inch lengths and one 2-inch length (thumb); for the top row, cut four 1-1/2-inch lengths (fingertips). Make a diagonal cut in one end of each fingertip and tip of thumb.

  2. Melt the almond bark candy according to the package directions. Use a toothpick to apply the melted candy to the fingertips, attaching the Jordan almonds as shown.

  3. Cut the red lace candy into nine 1-inch lengths. Gently push the ends into the cookie filling to connect the bones.

  4. Use the melted almond bark as needed to attach the bones to the serving tray. In the same way, attach a small pile of Cookies 'n' Creme Bites for the wrist.
