It’s no secret Halloween is my favorite holiday! I love all things spooky and making fun foods is a blast! I’ve been creating and sharing healthier spooky treats since 2010, and I’m super excited about these 3 new additions to the club!
FRANKENKIWIS, MUMMY DOGS and now… Witches’ Fingers!
This is another great one to let the kiddos help with. My girls & I had fun baking these witch fingers together!
Because my kiddos are super young I made it more fun and less spooky (as in they were ‘just’ witch fingers). BUT… the minute they went to bed, I got out my mini-prep and made a raspberry dipping sauce “blood” for my SEVERED Witches Fingers! AAAAHHHHH AAAAHHH! (That’s the best way I know how to transcribe a witch’s cackle. If you know of a better way, please let me know in the comments below!)
My husband and I enjoyed eating it with the “blood”, but use your discretion. Both ways were a hit!
Please let me know in the comments below what you think, or if you make it!
