Go ahead and nibble on some fingers this Halloween ... witch fingers, that is! They're creepy and oh-so cheesy, and would be great dipped into soup or paired with another fall-themed meal of your choice.

Cheesy Witch Fingers [Vegan, Gluten-Free]






  • 1 cup vegan butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup vegan cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup vegan grated parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups chickpea flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Black pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • Raw skinless almond slices


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine the butter, flour, baking powder, paprika, and cayenne in a food processor.
  2. Sprinkle some extra flour on a smooth surface. Remove the mixture from the food processor and shape into a tube. Break the tube into pieces about 2 inches each. Roll each piece into a thin tube. Pinch the tube slightly in the middle to make it look like a finger. Look at your own fingers for a guide but pretend you are a hundred years old.
  3. Using a toothpick or a fork tine, draw on knuckle lines. On the end of each tube, add the almond, pointy side up so that it looks like a finger nail. Arrange the fingers on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 20 minutes or until they start to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Be careful when you’re eating these – keep track of whose fingers you’re chewing on.
