Click here for recipe: BLOODY SEVERED FINGER HOT DOGS

INGREDIENTS

hot dogs

hot dog buns

ketchup

water

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Start a large pot of water boiling on the stove.

2. To make the fingernails and knuckles, slice the two sides of the fingernail, then straight across the top. Then make a slight curved slice for the bottom nail bed. Next, take your knife and carefully slice the tiny piece off. See the photo in the blog post for sizing to see how big you want to make your nail.

3. Next, to make the knuckles, make one slit along the middle with two crescent slits directly above and below. Then halfway between the knuckle and the nail, make two crescent slits. Repeat at the bottom.

4. Boil the hot dogs for 4-5 minutes.

5. Place  each "finger" into a hot dog bun loaded with ketchup - be sure to smear some ketchup on the bottom of each "severed finger" and more at the top of the bun.
