    The fingers are awesome and you’ve come up with multiple ways to employ the Schokoküsse (those brown, dome shaped thingies, chocolate kisses).

    It’s a good mixture of cute and creepy.

    I’ve been out of the children’s parties scene for the last 30+ years, so no wonder I’m out of touch 8-). From a short web search, they’re also known here and called kakkutikkari (kakku = cake, tikkari* = lollipop).
    * = the number of ks is rather significant, tikari means a dagger, tikkari is short for the slightly old-fashioned tikkukaramelli, direct translation “stick candy” or “candy-on-a-stick”

    In Finnish, a written doubled consonant means a geminate, which you don’t have in German and English. A double k is “longer” and considered to be split between two syllables.

    If we look at tikkari and tikari, syllable by syllable, we have tik-ka-ri and ti-ka-ri, so the approximate pronounication could be, (with stress on the first syllable, all vowels short, “i” like in “Spitz” and “a” like in “Tanz” and a strong tongue-tip rrrolling r) tick-ka-ri and ti-ka-ri.
