    These were soo easy to make and very cute! Looked like real toes! I took them to a halloween potluck for my husbands unit and they went so fast i didn't even get to try one!! I even won the best dish contest and my husband gets a 3 day weekend!! I used corn tortillas because i didn't have flour and they worked great, i think it gave them more flavor! I also soaked the toothpicks in water so they didn't burn! I will def make them again!  -  19 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I changed this slightly to make Mummy Fingers because I wanted to make them for dinner rather than as an appetizer. I used hot dogs and cut small flour tortillas in half, sprinkled the tortilla halves with cheese, then rolled them up with a hot dog in the center. Secured with toothpicks and baked. When they were out of the oven I took out the toothpicks and the melted cheese held the "bandages" down. I think they turned out really cute and were a fun, spooky, quick dinner for Halloween.  -  01 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
