comment How can I get gross, bloody stumps in my Halloween punch?
Marzipan comes to mind. It is malleable and keeps form well and can be colored with any amount of chocolate powder to achieve the skin color you desire. The cut surface can be colored red (not sure what colorant to use) and the bone left uncolored.
