Witch Finger Cookies with Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

Domestic Gothess brings us two Halloween recipes that will spark up any party! These witch's fingers are shortbread cookies, but the appearance makes them downright ghoulish. The fingernails are blanched almonds, and the overall look is enhanced with some cinnamon for dirt and food coloring for blood. These would be good with hot chocolate, but for a Halloween effect, make that hot chocolate red!

But this hot chocolate isn't just colored red. Domestic Gothess came up with a recipe that's not only blood red, but has the taste of red velvet cake.

Red velvet is vanilla with a hint of chocolate and a tangy flavour from the buttermilk. I thought that adding buttermilk to the hot chocolate might cause it to curdle, so I used a little cream cheese instead to add that classic hint of tanginess; it tastes very much like red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting!

The red velvet hot chocolate can be altered to be thick enough for dipping your cookies into or thinned to your own taste. Read how to make both of these Halloween treats at Domestic Gothess. ā€‹
