How to make the nails on the Witches Fingers:
There are a few different ways that you can do this. It’s all based on how much time you want to spend on it and the end look you’re going for. You can use whole almonds as I did in this recipe, you could use sliced almonds so the nails are thinner, or you could blanch the almonds and paint them black with gel food coloring.
Blanching and painting would take too much time for me when I’m looking for an easy recipe. A simple way to add a little more detail and a spookier look is to add a fix the almonds onto these Halloween fingers with red candy melts so it looks like blood.
