Blood Soup with Cheesy Witches Fingers


Blood Soup with Cheesy Witches Fingers
If you're like me and... how shall I put this... artistically challenged (see my hilarious attempt at Halloween Skeletons as a prime example), then this is most definitely the Halloween recipe for you! Quick, easy, tasty and fun - it ticks all the boxes and I guarantee your kids will be impressed.

Unfortunately, not only do I lack the patience but also the raw artistic talent to produce anything close to the amazing Halloween foodie creations I see on Pinterest. I can make lovely tasting food, but struggle to make things look aesthetically pleasing, especially when it comes to themed recipes. Judging by my past attempts, Halloween appears to be a particular problem for me! Yeah, go on, give yourself a laugh and look at my Halloween Skeletons again!
Blood Soup with Cheesy Witches Fingers
So, this year I'm not even going to attempt anything complicated. Instead, I've bought some Halloween themed cupcake cases and I'll make some easy cupcakes with a slime green icing, simply by adding green food colouring to my usual vanilla buttercream recipe (pretty sure I wont be able to mess that up). I'm hopeful they will go down well with the kids, as will this, my super simple Blood Soup with Cheesy Witches Fingers recipe. This lovely thick tomato soup made with fresh tomatoes and seasoned with onions, garlic, celery and bay leaves would make a perfect Halloween lunch especially if you served it from a big black witches cauldron.

The witches fingers in particular are really easy to make. Just halve some ciabatta rolls, sprinkle with grated mozzarella and italian herb seasoning, toast and then cut into 'fingers' adding the red pepper witches 'nails' before serving. There's not a lot that can go wrong. If I can manage it, you certainly can...and probably much better!
