Witch fingers

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, October 30, 2018, In : cookies 

Happy halloween! I was determined to make something vaguely healthy for the school's Freaky Friday bake sale and for the trick or treaters. This is free of sugar, gluten and dairy. You can also make it paleo by using almond meal instead of flour.

Makes 16
1/2 c coconut oil, softened to the consistency of butter
1/3 c maple syrup (or rice syrup)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
pinch salt
1 1/4 c flour (I use spelt)
16 blanched almonds
black food colouring (if desired)

Last year for Halloween I painstakingly chocolate-dipped about 50 tiny pretzel sticks and added chocolate chips for eyes and a mouth. They sure didn't last long at the kindergarten's Halloween party. This year I decided to make my own thick pretzel rods so they'd be much quicker to coat with chocolate. It's quite a process making your own pretzels; like bagels, you poach them before baking, but in a special solution. The result is a flavoursome crunchy stick. It's adapted from Serious Eats.

Halloween ghost pretzels

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, October 30, 2016, In : sweets 

Being a New Zealander we don't traditionally celebrate Halloween but this year I succumbed to making my first Halloween-themed snack for kindergarten's 'Freaky Friday' - ghost pretzels. Trust me to make the most finicky, fiddly thing. You can't get big thick pretzel sticks here so I only had thin little ones to work with. Dip in melted white chocolate and place chocolate chips for eyes and mouth. They barely fit on the stick and some of the faces looked a bit dodge but they tasted great and t...
