Delightlfully eerie treats to share with friends or trick or treaters when they come to your door on Halloween! A delicious sesame candy stick covered with a layer of marzipan and a layer of green sugar paste that looks like a finger! The perfect tricky treat that will make them scream!
- Divide the sugar paste into 4 equal sized pieces that are about 30 g each.
- Divide the marzipan into 4 equal sized pieces that are about 50 g each.
- Roll out the pieces of marzipan into a thin oval shape. You can use a rolling pin or your hands.
- Place a sesame candy stick in the middle, allowing the end to hang out a little.
- Roll it gently to give it a cylindrical shape that looks like a finger, making sure you don’t break the sesame candy in the center.
- Roll out the sugar paste into a thin oval shape also, just like the marzipan, using a rolling pin or your hands.
- Cover the marzipan “finger” evenly with the sugar paste.
- Position the whole almonds at the end and press on them gently inward so that they look like finger nails at the end of each finger.
- Use a toothpick or a sharp knife to lightly carve thin lines that look like the lines created over the knuckles on a finger.
- You can also paint the nails black with the food coloring.
- Trick or Treat!!
