Witches Fingers – Healthy Halloween Treats

Healthy halloween treats

These healthy halloween treats will not only spook your neighbours but these witches fingers will be a welcome healthy halloween treat.

The UK has is catching America up in it’s commercialisation of halloween – it is great fun, and it doesn’t have to have the artificial sugar high…and the obligatory melt downs that follow.

Ingredients:

5 Medjool dates with stones removed – approx.35g

35g Cashews – toasted is optional. Any nuts will work just as well.

1 tsp Cacao powder – preferably unsweetened

12 Blanched whole almonds

Method:

  • Blitz your nuts and dates until a paste is formed
  • Tip your mixture out and divide into 12 equal pieces
  • Roll into the shape of fingers- larger at one end and small at the other
  • Place a blanched almond over the thinner end to represent a finger nail
  • Using the back of a knife add a couple of wrinkle marks; horizontal indentations across the fatter end of the ‘finger’
