Adults cringe in pretend horror and kids squeal with delight when they see this Halloween display. But look closely—those witch fingers (and the eyeballs) are edible!
1 package crescent roll dough (the kind without perforations, or smush the perforations together)
1 egg white
Cut the dough into strips about an inch wide and roll them into ropes so they are about the diameter of your finger. Sprinkle lightly with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Gently make a few cuts where knuckles would be.
Round the edges on one end of the “finger” and brush with a little beaten egg white, then press a slice of slivered almond onto it so it looks like a fingernail.
Crush a sheet of aluminum foil and roughly shape into a tube about the size of rolling pin. Put on a cookie sheet and then drape the fingers over the tube so they’ll bake in a curved shape. Bake as directed on the crescent roll package. Once they cool, you can wrap the fingers around a mug filled with chocolate eyeballs or any other ghoulish candy.
They are so gross to look at…but taste like cinnamon rolls, so you won’t have any trouble deciding “witch” Halloween treat to devour first!
