Scary Zombie Fingers

1 cup walnuts
1 cup almonds
2 tsp spirulina
12 pitted dates
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp orange extract
Slivered Almond

For beet blood:
2 tbsp brown rice syrup
1 tsp beet powder
½ tsp spirulina

In a food processor, combine walnuts, almonds and spirulina. Blend until fine.
Continue processing and add pitted dates, one at a time.
Add vanilla and orange extracts and process until dough forms a ball.
To form creepy fingers, take 2 oz portions and roll with your hands.
Score the knuckles with a knife and brush lightly with blood syrup.
To make this syrup, combine brown rice syrup, beet powder, and spirulina. Mix until smooth.
Use slivered almonds for nails by dipping each piece into the blood and securing them on the zombie fingers.

Halloween Apple Fangs

1 apple
1 tbsp beet blood
2 tbsp blanched almond pieces
Nordic Omega 3 Gummy worms

Begin by cutting your apple in half. Cut each half into thirds, and remove the core from each third.
Carefully remove the back portion on the back of the apple slice. Slather some of the beet blood into each opening.
For bloody fangs, dip blanched almond pieces into the beet blood and stick them into the opening forming to form fangs.
For presentation, serve with some Nordic Omega 3 gummy worms and excite your trick or treaters with this healthy snack.
