Halloween Recipe: Avocado Witches Fingers

Spooky Halloween treat. Looks like slimy, severed fingers, makes you hungry, right? That’s the best part about Halloween, you get to make crazy, gross, appetizers that are inspired by dismembered body parts and people love it.

Spooky Avocado Witches Fingers

4 Avocados
peeled, pitted and halved
1 tbs lemon or lime juice
2 ounces goat cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 ounce prosciutto slices

Cut each avocado half into 4-6 slices. Place in medium bowl and gently toss in lemon juice.

 Fill the center of each avocado slice with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon goat cheese mixture.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chili powder.

Wrap each avocado “finger” with 1/3 slice of prosciutto until the goat cheese is secured to the avocado. Make sure to leave the tip of the avocado exposed, to resemble a finger nail. Arrange the avocados in the shape of a hand on the plate to add extra spookiness. Serve and Enjoy!

    I’m looking for a recipe to bring to a Halloween party. This is in the running. If not I could always just eat it at home!

    This looks Delicious. I would like to try this, is there a sub for goat cheese??(I can’t get goat cheese here). I’m not sure what other cheeses would go good with avocado.. Voted for you too.. Good Luck

    • Jaxie October 10, 2011 at 8:13 pm #

      Try cream cheese and just season it with your favorite spices (before or after you add it to the avocado). And thanks for the vote =)

    Saw these on pinterest and just about fell outta my chair! AMAZING idea!!!!!

    Let the goat cheese soften and fill the avocado when it is only halved then slice into pieces. Much neater and less labor intensive. Also dip knife in hot water to aide in cutting

    Just sayin, witchy fingers are good for ANY DAY.

    And I realized, it is reasonable to think you are making these for company, but when you are forced to eat the first few because your wrapping skills are not dabomb?

    You wonder if they really SHOULD be for company. Or for you. Now.

    • Jackie March 23, 2013 at 8:51 am #

      I agree, good every day. I made them for a Halloween food contest, so that’s why the strange name. But tasty snack all year long :)

  18. Denise September 17, 2013 at 1:33 pm #

    These were so yummy! Made them for Monday night Football last night- we tossed em on the grill for a few min on each side & even added a lil bell pepper strip in each for some crunch & they were DELISH!

    • Jackie September 17, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

      Yum!! That sounds amazing!

    These look like a wonderful idea for my upcoming Christmas party. Looking to add some healthy finger foods! Thanks for the recipe.
