Spooky Witch Fingers are perfect for an after-school snack or as a fun Halloween party treat. They're easy to make and everyone will love them.

Here’s what you do:

2. Open the bag of pretzel rods and dip each pretzel rod into the melted green candy melts. Let the excess drip off into the cup and then place the pretzel rod onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Allow the pretzels a minute or two to dry and then move the pretzels to a second cookie sheet lined with wax paper. This insures that your pretzel won’t dry in a puddle of candy melts.

3. While the candy melts are still wet, place one sliced almond onto the top of each pretzel rod. Push the sliced almond into the candy melts a bit to create a cuticle.

4. While the candy melts are still slightly wet, take a toothpick and draw lines onto the witches fingers to create knuckles. Add green sprinkles while the candy melts are still wet to create warts if desired.
5. Once the candy melts have dried, paint black food dye onto the sliced almonds. Be sure to allow the food dye to dry before serving.
