Here’s what I used to make these fun, festive (kind of creepy 😉 ) witch fingers that, need I say, my kids LOVED!
First I made the yummy Reese’s like filling. You can find the full printable recipe here, or click the link below.
This peanut butter filling recipe is the best. I’ve been tweaking it to perfection for years. I start by creaming the butter, peanut butter, and crushed peanuts. I’ve tried so many different recipes. Some with graham crackers, others with rice crispies. This recipe really is the best, at least that’s this Reese’s lovers opinion. 😉 Once the first 3 ingredients are mixed well I add the powdered sugar.
Once it’s mixed it looks a little dry but should hold together when squeezed. Once the filling is mixed I shaped the fingers. I used about 2 tablespoons of filling for each finger. You could make these as big or small as you’d like. I liked the idea that once they were coated with chocolate they would be about the size of a real finger.
After the filling was shaped I popped them in the freezer to set while I melted the green candy melts and cut almonds in half (to use as the fingernails). For ease, I used the Wiltons candy melts. If you don’t prefer these you can use white chocolate and color it yourself. You may need to add a little oil to thin the chocolate as food coloring can make white chocolate seize (become hard even when warm). Once the chocolate was melted and almonds prepped I was ready to dip and assemble.
After adding an almond nail to each I put them back in the freezer while I melted the red candy melts. I melted the candy melts right in the zip loc bag then cut a very small hole in the corner. I added a little red chocolate to the very end of the witch finger then had a few drips come down the sides.
To move things along, I put them back in the freezer for a couple minutes. That’s it! They are that quick and easy AND when all your ghosts and ghouls see them they will be gobbled up just as quick!
