I’m sure you have heard the phrase, “Let your fingers do the walking.” Well, Witch Finger Pretzels have walked all over Pinterest and the Internet. I almost didn’t want to make them due to the fact they are so common but, on the other hand, the reason they are popular is because they are easy, fun and delicious.

My good friend, Angie, has a daughter who loves to bake and to decorate cakes and cupcakes. Her name is Callie and she is eleven years old. She came over this past August for her third, annual, individual lesson in making fun foods in the kitchen, and Witch Finger Pretzels were one of the recipes on our Halloween treat list for the day.

All the credit for these witch fingers goes to Callie; she is a quick study and did a terrific job.

Callie and I made several Halloween treats when she came over. We made Spider-Web Cupcakes, Meringue Ghosts, Witch Finger Pretzels, fondant bats and candy-apple cookies. What we are most excited about is our Cake, our Masterpiece, and it will be featured on Simply Sated tomorrow.  Here is a sneak peak.  Ha-Ha!

  5. Allow the fingers to partially dry, then use a toothpick to "draw" knuckles on the fingers.

    Love the idea but we have a peanut allergy. Any other ideas??

      Hey Heidi! I think golden raisins would work well and would look pretty creepy, too:-) If the raisins are too think, cut them in half lengthwise. Thanks for stopping by Simply Sated. Please send me a photo of the fingers with raisin nails if you make them. Have fun!!
