Matcha witch fingers are a super cute yet creepy Halloween snack you can make in a snap! Pretzel rods are coated in matcha white chocolate, making for a delicious salty and sweet treat.
What do I need to make matcha witch fingers?
This cute Halloween snack is made with just a handful of ingredients! Here they are:
- Pretzel rods: The long, stick-like pretzels, so they look like fingers!
- White chocolate melting wafers: To dip the pretzels in. You can also use white chocolate chips or a chopped white chocolate bar.
- Matcha: Lends a beautiful “witchy” green color (no food coloring needed) and delicious matcha flavor! We used our Culinary Grade Matcha, but you can use whatever matcha you have on-hand. Shop Culinary Grade >
- Sliced almonds: For the “fingernails.”
How to make matcha witch fingers
These are super easy to make! They would be a great Halloween themed activity to do with kids, or a simple, festive snack to bring to a Halloween party. Here’s how to make them:
One: Melt the white chocolate. You can do this in the microwave, in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate is completely melted.
Two: Sift the matcha into the white chocolate and stir until it is completely combined.
Three: Dip the pretzels in the matcha white chocolate and transfer them to a parchment lined baking sheet. Tip: transfer the matcha chocolate to a tall, slender vessel to dip the pretzels, so it easily coats the length of the pretzel.
Four: While the chocolate is still wet, press an almond slice on to the end of the pretzel rod.
