Raw Witches Fingers
Here's a scarily good Halloween recipe from California Prunes… It's a vegan and raw recipe for Witches Fingers.
5 California Prunes
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp water
(optional) pinch of salt
¼ tsp ground cloves
1 tsp dark cocoa powder
¼ tsp ground cardamom
pumpkin seeds and 1 tsp red fruit puree for decoration
Blend almonds and walnuts until almost grounded, set aside. In a food processor blend California Prunes, dates, maple syrup and honey until a paste is formed. Add water if needed. Add almonds and walnuts, salt, cocoa and spices and blend until a dough forms. If dough is too sticky add a little more almonds/walnuts. Divide the dough into 1 inch balls and roll them into finger shapes. Place pumpkin seed at the tip using small amount of fruit pure. Serve immediately or keep refrigerated until needed. Raw Witches Fingers can be made a day ahead.
