Potato Witch "Fingers"

Bring a little gruesomeness to your Halloween parties with these delicious Potato Witch "Fingers". Dunked in bloody ketchup, these delicious, yet simple, five-ingredient treats will bring a smile to all who feast!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large Idaho® Russet potato (13 ounces/376 grams), cooked, peeled, mashed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1 – 1½ teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 24 raw almonds, blanched and halved (for nails)

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients, except the almonds, and form a smooth dough.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. Using a measuring spoon, scoop two teaspoons of the mashed potato dough and roll into a ball.
  4. Roll the ball into a finger shape, shaping one end to a point for the nail to sit on.
  5. Place the shaped finger on the prepared baking tray. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  6. Using a knife, score knuckle lines on the finger, 3-4 lines below the nail area, and 3-4 lines towards the end of the finger.
  7. Place an almond half on the nail area.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven at 400°F/200°C for 20-25 minutes, until the bottoms brown and crisp and the top is puffed and firm.
  9. Serve hot with ketchup.

Notes:

The fingers can be shaped the day before and baked just before serving. Bring to room temperature before baking.
