Just a few weeks until Halloween and I swear I could celebrate this holiday forever. To me, there’s simply no challenge more fun than figuring out how to make things spooky but also beautiful, and today’s appetizer recipe is another example of that. Keeping in line with our black-on-black vibe, we made a cheese and crackers spread that’s tasty… and also terrifying. Keep reading to see how to recreate this for your spook-tacular bash.

I love using Boursin Cheese for this recipe. The herb-filled flavor is super satisfying, plus the consistency is perfect for creating this eye-catching presentation.
Like any party, coming up with dishes that are super simple while still delicious is the ultimate goal. I’d say we totally nailed it with this one.
Scroll down for the recipe below, and whip these Witch Fingers up in time to have guests freaking out (in a good way) all party long.
- 1 pack Boursin Cheese
- plain Greek yogurt
- sliced almonds
- red food coloring
- fresh thyme
- crackers for serving
- In a mixing bowl, whisk the full pack of Boursin Cheese with 1/4 cup yogurt. If the cheese is still crumbled, carefully continue adding yogurt until you reach a peanut-butter like consistency.
- Spoon the mixture into a large freezer bag. Using a pair of scissors, cut the tip off the bottom corner of the bag to create an opening between 1/4-inch and 1/2-inch.
- In a small mixing bowl, soak the sliced almonds in red food coloring for 5 minutes. While the almonds are soaking, pipe the cheese mixture onto a serving board in 3-inch long sections.
- Use a fork to pull the almonds out of the food coloring and set on a paper towel. Pat dry, then place on the ends of the piped cheese "fingers."
- Before serving, drizzle with honey, sprinkle with fresh thyme, and pair with crackers.
