Bewitching Breadsticks

Bewitching Breadsticks

Innocent breadsticks are transformed into Halloween mischief when dyed sliced almonds are tucked into the ends to look like Dracula fingernails.


  • 1 can (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 4 to 5 drops Red McCormick® Assorted Food Colors and Egg Dye
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Pizza or spaghetti sauce


  1. Separate and twist breadsticks as directed on package.
  2. Squeeze 4 to 5 drops food color into small bowl. Dip individual almond slices into food color until each is coated. Press one dyed almond into one end of each breadstick to resemble a fingernail.
  3. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese onto breadsticks, if desired.
  4. Bake as directed on package.
  5. Serve with your favorite pizza or spaghetti sauce for dipping.

Yield: 12 servings

Test Kitchen Tip: Wear disposable plastic gloves when dipping the almonds to avoid staining your fingers.
