Witch Fingers

Halloween is just around the corner! Now is the time to make all of those fun and spooky treats. These Witch Fingers made with pretzel rods, green candy melts, and slivered almonds are perfect for any Halloween gathering, or a fun afternoon project with the kids.

For my Witch Fingers I dipped the pretzels in green candy melts I found at the local Michaels store. If you don't have them available, white almond bark with green food coloring would work as well. If you go that route, be sure to use the gel coloring. Liquid coloring drops will make the chocolate curdle.

Witch Finger chocolate covered pretzels are easy, fast, and fun....and may I say, SPOOKTACULAR!

Happy Halloween Season!

Witch Fingers
While I would love to take credit for this awesome idea I can't. I found it on Deep in the Heart of Arkansas

1/2 bag pretzel rods
1 bag of Wilton Candy Melts - Vibrant Green Color
Slivered Almonds

-Lay waxed paper out
-Pour candy melts in a bowl and melt in microwave according to directions on package
-Open pretzel bag and slivered almonds bag
-Taking one pretzel at a time, hold pretzel in one hand and with other hand, use a spatula
 or spoon to scoop and drizzle melted chocolate over and down each pretzel rod. Tip the
  pretzel rod downward over the bowl of melted chocolate and shake and drip excess
  chocolate back into bowl. Shake the chocolate off  of the pretzel in a downward motion
  until all excess drips off the end.
-Lay chocolate covered pretzel rod on the wax paper.
-Pick a good looking "fingernail" out of the batch of slivered almonds.
-Place on the end of the chocolate covered pretzel and slightly press down.
-Continue to cover each pretzel with green chocolate, lay on wax paper, and apply nail.
-When all of the chocolate is used up covering the pretzels, allow the chocolate covered
  pretzel Witch Fingers to dry most of the way.
-When they are almost all the way dried, use a sharp ended toothpick to draw knuckles.
-When completely hardened and dried, store in an airtight container in the fridge.
