I have to say, these bread sticks look a little realistic... But I can also assure you they taste absolutely scrumptious, and totally helped to make the Halloween Chili Buffet a hit!
So much so in fact, that when I asked my daughter "What would you like to do for Halloween this year?"  (meaning costume...), she replied without a moment's hesitation - "Witch Bread Fingers!" :)

Indeed that's what we made. It's also a great way to get the kids involved the planning of your Halloween Chili Buffet! And it's super easy if you cheat like me, and use ready-to-bake- flour mixes! Here's how:

Witch’s Fingers Bread Sticks Recipe  

– Makes approximately 14 sticks


* Half a packet of bread mix (500 g)
* 2 table spoons of extra virgin olive oil
* 1 tablespoon of finely chopped cilantro
* 1 beaten egg
* Pecan Nuts to decorate each bread stick

Mix the bread dough according to packet instructions, then shape them into approximately 6 inch long and 1 inch wide sticks. Let sticks rise for approximately 40 minutes until double in size. Just before baking, create slits on the front of each stick with the tip of sharp knife. Bake for about 20 minutes. 
Five minutes before the breads are fully baked and golden, take them out of the over and brush the sticks with a mixture of olive oil and the chopped cilantro, and press a pecan nut into the tips using a beaten egg to secure them in place.
Either finish baking until golden and serve at once, or let the bread cool and refrigerate at this stage to  finish baking just before serving.
Serve break sticks into a cauldron lined with a kitchen paper, and add a spooky printable tag to tell guests what they're about to devour! ;)
