Amy Bevin: Hi! I am Amy Bevins, I am an educator, a writer, and I am also a mom. Today, we are making creepy, tasty Halloween treats. Kids love frighteningly delicious treats to enjoy during this holiday season. So, right now we are going to be making Witch s Fingers. They are healthy and fun snack that your kids can enjoy during Halloween.
There are several ingredients in this, so we will go over each one in the beginning and then I will give you the specific measurements for each one when we actually start creating them. What you are going to need to get together is some cooking spray, some parmesan cheese and you need it shredded nongrated, Italian seasoning, salt, refrigerated bread sticks, a pepper, it can be green, red, yellow, orange whatever your favorite color is or you can have some fun mixing colors and some marinara sauce; that is all you going to need to put together the gruelish treat.
The first thing you need to do is preheat your oven, take a look on the can of bread sticks and it will tell you the correct temperature for your oven, it is usually going to be around 350-375. Once you have got your oven preheated, the next step is to take your cooking spray and lightly coat your pan so that bread sticks don t stick. We are just going to set it aside because we will need that again in a few minutes. The next step is to mix the cheese. You are going to take your shredded parmesan cheese, and you are going to take a half a cup and this doesn t have to be exact, about a half a cup on a plate. You are going to add a quarter of teaspoon of Italian seasoning or more or if you like Italian seasonings and then you are going to add about eight of teaspoon of salt.
If you like a little more color and a little more flavor, you can add seasoned salt as well and that s a nice taste or if you like it with a little bit of spice add a little bit of Italian pepper, but that gives it a pretty good kick. The next thing you are going to do is just mix up the cheese and the salt and seasonings until it s fully mixed. Once you have your cheese thoroughly mixed together, we are going to be ready to make Witch s Fingers, the delicious creep Halloween treat.
