Witch Feet Cupcakes ~ Quick, Easy, Halloween Treats

Paper straws are big right now.  You can find all kinds of them all over right now.  When I saw these black and orange ones, I thought they looked like tights and came up with this idea.

You will need:

  • Cupcakes that are baked and iced
  • Sprinkles (optional)
  • Striped paper straws
  • Small witches feet cut outs (I cut mine out with my Silhouette machine, but you could find some by searching for them online and printing them off.  Mine were about an inch each)
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun

Begin by cutting your straws into 3 sections.  Don’t stress too much if they aren’t perfectly even, you can push them down a little further into the cupcake.  You can then attach the shoes to the straw sections using hot glue.  Let them cool and make sure you remove any glue strings that may be hanging before putting them into the cupcake.

I used some fall leaf sprinkles, maybe my witches were jumping into piles of leaves!  There you have a super simple party food that people will love and think is cute!  I served them at a family get together and the kids thought they were great!

Witch toes easy Halloween snack

Make these Witch toes easy Halloween snack for your Halloween party.

Witch toes easy Halloween snack

These witch toe snacks are so fun for a party or just a fun snack for after school. So incredibly easy to make and next to no supplies needed. This is all you need: Almond Joy cookies and banana Runts. They make a gnarly curved finger nail which is just what a witch’s toe needs.Witch toes easy Halloween snack

All you have to do is take your Runts candy and gently push it into your Almond Joy. Of course, any candy bar will work, but I liked the little “growth” the almond makes on the top of the toe. The banana runts

You will need to make  pretzel skeletons

Pretzels Sticks and mini twists

Almond bark

M&Ms for the eyes

Wax paper for setting up

Begin by melting your almond bark in the microwave for 90 seconds.  I did half a brick at a time.  If it isn’t melted, put it back in for another 20 seconds, taking it out to stir.  Continue those steps until it is melted all the way without chunks.

Candy Coating

Once you have the candy coating melted, begin to put your pretzels in.  I started with a twist for the head.  Once it was coated, I fished it out of the candy coating with a fork.  I then allowed the excess candy coating to drip back into my bowl, and set the pretzel on the wax paper.  My pattern was 1 twist pretzel followed by 5 stick pretzels all horizontal under the twist to form the ribs.  Once the ribs are done, do another twist pretzel, but this time do it upside down.  Finally, you will be doing 4 more sticks and laying them for the legs and arms.  If you are using M&Ms for the eyes, now is when you will put them on too.  Continue doing this until all of your candy coating is gone.  I got 12 skeletons out of half a brick of candy coating.  When they were done setting up on the wax paper I used a thin, metal spatula to scoop them off the wax paper.  The skeletons will be fairly brittle in some places, mostly where the head and ribs connect.  Be sure to set them in an airtight container where they won’t be shaken around a lot to avoid them breaking before you are ready to use them.

Yummy snack for school

Now you have a great, inexpensive snack for your kids, a Halloween party, maybe even a school party if you are going to take them yourself.  Not sure how they would hold up in the care of a rambunctious grade schooler! But pretty sure they would enjoy eating their lil pretzel skeletons.
