Witch Fingers Cookies for Halloween

Cakes and Cookies

Halloween is so much fun! I think I enjoy it more than the kids do ๐Ÿ™‚
Pumpkin is carved; costumes are ready; all thatโ€™s left now is to make some creepy snacks to get in the mood.
The kids LOVED these and needless to say it was all gone an hour later ๐Ÿ™‚

This recipe is both fun to make and fun to eat and can also be made with kids as it’s very easy to shape and only has a few ingredients.
Happy Halloween Everyone!
