Finger Sandwiches

You can also tuck the carrots inside two slices of bread, so they stick out both ends of the sandwich. Cool and creepy! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    These were really a simple and light food to make. I made them for my kids' lunch this week (since it's almost Halloween) and they loved it! They really liked the cream cheese mixture on the bread. I did add a touch of tomato sauce on the ends of the fingers - for a spookier look ;) GREAT for kids or a party appetizer!
