We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite Halloween creations that are sure to impress all you party people.

These Zombie Finger Cookies inspired by Hocus Pocus are rich and buttery, colored with a hint of matcha and shaped into severed zombie fingers. Very similar to the classic “Witch Finger” cookies that are popular this time of year, these severed Zombie Finger Cookies use pistachios instead of almonds as the nails to give more of a “rotting” appearance. Gross … but also delicious.
