Ingredient Checklist


Cut the Pirouette Cookies as follows:
  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.
