  • 8 ounces white chocolate, or white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  2. Soften the white chocolate in the microwave, blending after like clockwork until it’s smooth and liquid. In the event that you are utilizing white chocolate chips, they may be very firm when you liquefy them, so you can add a spoonful of vegetable shortening to make the chocolate more fluid if important.
  3. Hold a strawberry by the stem and dunk it in the chocolate until it is on the whole cover. Hold it over the bowl and let the abundance trickle once more into the bowl, then, at that point, scratch the base against the lip of the bowl. Put the berry on the pre-arranged baking sheet.
  4. Repeat the process until the strawberries are all covered with white chocolate. Refrigerate the plate until the chocolate is set, around 15 minutes.

  • 28 blanched almonds
  • 1 tube black food gel colour

  • 14 large pretzel rods
  • 12 ounces bright-green candy coating

This will make your witch finger very realistic looking. If the covering is too dissolved and sticky when you attempt, give it a couple of additional minutes to set prior to attempting once more.
  3. After every one of the pretzels has been dipped and decorated, refrigerate the plate for 10 minutes to totally set the covering. From that point forward, the witch fingers can be served on a party plate or be standing up in a mason container.
