Help! Do you think they have spied us? Ghoulies and monsters and spiders, We're frightened to death Can't catch our breath, Who can we find that will hide us? An eye with no face - what a freak, A hand with no arm makes me shriek, That eye it is peeping, Those fingers are creeping They're finding my throat - ooohh....arghhhh...... eeek.........!!! I thought I'd post this early before there is a glut of such posts. Photo is of edible fingers baked by my friend @justplainsilly and used with her permission.

Did you eat these fingers just like any other biscuits or were you repelled? They don't look appetising, do they? Of course, cannibals may see them differently. :-)

@MALUSE No, I didn't get the chance to eat them because she lives in America. I think I could have eaten them quite happily.

@AkoPinay I think the nails are made from almonds, so would probably taste quite nice

I had seen the recipe online last year, but I did not dare to make them, they look disgusting. I think I am going to make again my little ghost biscuits.

@jaboUK No, I did not, because the idea to watch at amputated fingers made me sick. The little ghosts are funny, I can even consider Halloween muffins with cobwebs and a cute spider on the top.
