This recipe elevates potatoes to a frighteningly good Halloween scare. Don’t be nervous if you haven’t made gnocchi before; it’s an easy and forgiving process.
Gnocchi is traditionally made with semolina flour and potatoes. I’m using a gluten-free baking blend in place of the wheat, which makes these little dumplings gluten-free, but you can use wheat flour, oat flour, or whatever you have on hand.
I colored the ones pictured black by substituting 2 tablespoons of food-grade charcoal for that amount of flour but you could make purple by using purple potatoes, adding a few drops of food coloring, or going with white.
If you choose white, spook them up by using ghost or skull cookie cutters.
