Chef Alvin and Lil Yachty met up in the kitchen to give a classic snack a new, spicier twist. Introducing Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Crusted Mozzarella Sticks, also known as Witch Fingers.

Just in time for Halloween, the tasty snack is a great finger food if you’re having guests over or if you’re binging your favorite scary movies by yourself. Whether enjoyed with marinara sauce or ranch dressing—something Yachty admitted to never trying before—witch fingers are an easy go-to snack.

Using simple ingredients such as flour, eggs, mozzarella cheese, and Cheetos Flamin’ Hot snacks, Alvin and Yachty got to business.

In between cracking and whipping egg yolks (another first for Lil Boat) and dunking the mozzarella cheese in the finely diced Cheetos Flamin’ Hot snacks, Chef Alvin received specific instructions from a special guest. Watch the video above to see how the Witch Fingers came together and if you want to whip these up yourself, the ingredient for the recipe is below.
