  • 3/4 cup yellow candy melts
  • 1/2 cup turquoise candy melts
  • 35 pretzel "dippers"
  • 35 pumpkin seeds raw and unsalted


  • Place the candy melts in a heatproof bowl.
  • Bring a sauce pan with an inch of water to a boil. Place the bowl over top and reduce the heat to low.
  • Stir the candy melts until melted and thoroughly combined. Being careful as the bowl does get hot.
  • Use oven mitts to remove the bowl to a kitchen towel and then carefully pour into a heat safe measuring cup.
  • Dip each pretzel into the melted candy, swirling to get it mostly coated.
  • Place on a parchment paper or silicone mat and repeat with the remaining pretzels.
  • Once the fingers are almost dry, secure a pumpkin seed and use a toothpick to make knuckle wrinkles.
  • Serve once the witch fingers are solid.
