I don’t ‘do’ scary. I won’t watch a horror movie, I hate people creeping up behind me and I really don’t like zombies. I was super brave one day and watched ‘Wolf Creek’, although I would only do so in the bright sun of day light with one hand permanently half covering my eyes. I had nightmares for week and haven’t been able to watch playschool without vivid flashbacks yet.
So as the world’s biggest scardey cat you can imagine how I feel about Halloween. Lucky for me I have found a part of Halloween that I can get behind…the food!! Pumpkin everything, monster cupcakes and a little bit of grossness; like these Severed Witches Fingers with Blood Sauce.
These biscuits are as tasty as they wicked. The biscuit is a simple blend of gluten free flours, coconut oil and nut butter. Any type of nut or seed butter will work in this recipe but it will vary the taste a bit. If the mixture tastes too bitter from a seed butter just add an extra teaspoon of vanilla essence. You can let your creative side show when making these Severed Witches Fingers. Add finger nails, knuckle creases and maybe even an old scar. I have seen people add green food coloring to their dough to make green fingers…ewwww!!!
The Blood Sauce (aka Raspberry Sauce just in case you were worried about having to make a sacrificial slaughter at midnight under a full moon!) isn’t essential but definitely adds to the theme of the biscuits.
These Severed Witches Fingers with Blood Sauce are the perfect Halloween Treat. They're tasty and a little bit ghoulish! They can be made nut free by replacing the nut butter with seed butter and using banana chips as the finger nails.
