Graveyard Gravel
Ingredients
  •  3 cups of semisweet chocolate pieces
  •  1 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  •  2 tablespoons  butter or margarine
  •  1-1/2 teaspoons  vanilla
  •  Dash of salt
  •  2 cups of mini marshmallows
  •  2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder sifted with an equal amount of powdered sugar
  •  2 Tbsp. Powdered sugar
Directions
 
  1. Line a 9x9x2-inch or an 8x8x2-inch baking pan with foil and set aside. 
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat and stir chocolate pieces, condensed milk, butter, vanilla, and salt over medium-low heat until melted and smooth.  Remove from heat; stir in marshmallows just until combined, and spread mixture evenly in the prepared pan. Using a table knife or thin metal spatula, swirl marshmallows through fudge in pan until marshmallows are mostly melted. Cover and chill about 2 hours or until firm.
  3. Using a small scoop, scoop fudge and shape into rocks (fudge will be sticky). Roll some in cocoa powder mixture and some in powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Makes about 80 pieces (2 1/4 lbs.).

#Recipe | Make some spooky Witch Finger cookies

This post may contain affiliate links, including Amazon.  Please visit our Privacy Policy and Disclosures.

 



Makes 60 Fingers.  Variations include using green food color and adding warts from extra dough or chocolate chips!
 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup whole almonds
  • 1 (.75 ounce) tube red decorating gel

Directions

  1. Combine the butter, sugar, egg, almond extract, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Beat together with an electric mixer; gradually add the flour, baking powder, and salt, continually beating; refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.
  3. Remove dough from refrigerator in small amounts. Scoop 1 heaping teaspoon at a time onto a piece of waxed paper. Use the waxed paper to roll the dough into a thin finger-shaped cookie. Press one almond into one end of each cookie to give the appearance of a long fingernail. Squeeze cookie near the tip and again near the center of each to give the impression of knuckles. You can also cut into the dough with a sharp knife at the same points to help give a more finger-like appearance. Arrange the shaped cookies on the baking sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are slightly golden in color, 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Remove the almond from the end of each cookie; squeeze a small amount of red decorating gel into the cavity; replace the almond to cause the gel to ooze out around the tip of the cookie.
