As seen on: Giada’s Holiday Handbook, Season 2, Episode 1. Halloween Open House.
Cut each piece of string cheese in half so you have 2 shorter sticks. Working one at a time, make 4 cuts vertically stopping about 3/4 of an inch from the top. Roll the cheese so the cuts are not parallel to the cutting board and make 2 or 3 more cuts, making the bristles of the broom. Press a pretzel stick into the top of the cheese stick to make the handle. Tie a chive in the middle of the space left together at the top as the tie that would hold it together. Continue with the remaining brooms.
Spread the mustard haphazardly on the bottom of a black or white plate. Stand the brooms up on their bristles as if they are sweeping up the mustard.
Easy Witch’s Brooms
Well, this is it! Tomorrow is Halloween!! I hope you have found some really great recipes that you can use for tomorrow’s festivities. Some of my favorite are the Spooky Twinkie Mummies, our DIY Pretzel Pumpkins and my most favorite the Easy Halloween Popcorn! Most of the Halloween recipes we have shared recently are pretty easy to put together, but have that big WOW factor. These Easy Witch’s Brooms are no exception! This is about as easy as it gets, yet they are so cute (and yummy). You can do these really quick, but expect them to disappear just as fast!
- 20 Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures
- 20 pretzel sticks
- ¼ cup of Fall-colored candy melting chips (Red, Orange or Green)
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
- Melt fall colored candy chips by heating in the microwave for 45 seconds, stirring and repeating until it is melted and smooth.
- Dip ¼" of the end of the pretzel into the melted candy. Then, insert the pretzel stick into the bottom of Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and place on the prepared baking sheet.
- Place the pan in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to set up.
We used the red candy melting chips for our Easy Witch’s Brooms because we already had them from another recipe. But they come in all kinds of fun colors, so use whatever you like. Luckily, the miniature Reese’s cups are available pretty much every where right now. This is great because 20 of these cute little bites won’t last long at our Halloween party. But they are so easy to make and the kids can help get them done. So you can have a lot of them made in a short amount of time.

- 2 hot dogs
- 6 pretzel sticks
- 1 to 2 green onions tops
- 1 string cheese stick (optional)
- Cut each hot dog into 3 pieces.
- Using your scissors or kitchen shears, cut the lower half of the hot dogs in half and then cut each half into 3 to 4 strips being careful not to cut all the way through the hot dog.
- Bring a small sauce pan of water to a boil. Add the hot dogs and cook 5 to 7 minutes or until heated through.
- Drain the hot dogs and cool until cool enough to handle.
- If using the string cheese, peel the string cheese into pieces and cut to the size of the hot dog pieces.
- Wrap strips of the green onion tops around the hot dog brooms and tie. If using the string cheese, wrap the pieces of string cheese around the hot dogs and then tie with strips of green onion.
- Stick each broom with one pretzel stick before serving.
Really? 352 calories for 2/3 of a hot dog and a pretzel stick? And maybe some cheese strings? Yeah. Okay.

Flying Ointment Recipe #3: Herbal Salve
If you’re looking for a flying ointment close to the traditional, you’ll first make a flying ointment oil then use that as a base for an herbal salve. Herbal salves take longer to create but are worth the effort. The consistency is much thicker and will not drip or rub off as easily as an oil.
- Herbal infused oil of your choice
- beeswax or carnauba wax
- glass jar or tin container
- optional: vitamin E (to preserve) and essential oils (to add extra scent/energy)
Combine the wax and herbal oil and set it on low-heat to warm over a double-boiler on your stove. Remove from the stove and add your optional Vitamin E and Essential Oils. Pour into glass or tin container. Allow your salves to cool totally before storing. Store it somewhere cool and dark, so as to avoid heating and re-solidifying the salve. Consistency of the salve depends on how much wax you use in your flying ointment. More wax equals a thicker consistency, less wax equals a looser consistency.

Here is what you need:
Fruit Roll Ups
Scissors or kitchen shears
Here is what you do:
1-Unroll your fruit roll-ups and cut them into 1&Prime strips.
2-Use the scissors to cut fringe along one edge, making sure you don&rsquot cut all the way to the top.
3-Place the end of the pretzel on the top edge of the roll up and start rolling it.
4-Keep rolling. Roll it all the way to the end and pinch the top together to seal it.
5-Fan the strips out a little so it looks more like a broom.
6 &ndash Now make up a bunch of them. They look cuter in groups. 😉
-I made these with mini pretzel sticks this time because it&rsquos what I had. If you are serving a crowd, it is probably better to use the large pretzel rods so you don&rsquot have to make as many. Just cut your fruit roll ups wider.
How to make edible broomsticks?
Step-1: Cut off 5-inch pieces from Fruit rollups (Step-1, picture below-left)
Step-2: Brush both sides with confectioners sugar (this helps not to stick as much). (Step-2, picture below-left)
Step-3: Fold in half (Step 1, picture below-right)
Step-4: Using scissors, trim all the way to about half the height. (Step 2, picture below-right).
Step-5: Dip the tip of a pretzel stick in melted chocolate and roll the fruit leather around it. (Step-3, picture below-right).
Step-6: Using the tooth pick place a dab of melted chocolate at the end of fruit leather to help it stick well.
Step-7: Place brooms in the refrigerator to set (Step-4, picture below-right).

Tip: String Cheese Witch Brooms
In an effort to offer multiple healthy treats at my daughter's Halloween party, we set up a station to make string cheese witch brooms. We set out a bowl of stick pretzels, a plate of string cheese and plastic knives for them to cut the broom bristles. These are easy enough for even younger kids to make. :)
This Chocolate bark is a fun and easy treat to make and kids can even help! And the best part is that it's the edible version of evil melting away.
Chocolate bark is such an easy Halloween treat to make because you don't need to bake it or even use your stove- you can use your microwave (just be sure to use ½ power (50%) and keep an eye on it). If you cook it too long, it will seize (becoming crumbly and hard). And like the Wicked Witch of the West, water is BAD for chocolate and candy melts! If they come into contact with water, they will seize. Make sure your bowls and utensils are dry!
I try really hard to not wish ill will upon anyone - that's bad karma in and of itself. Instead, I just wish that they get exactly what they deserve. And that's not up to me to decide. I'm generally pretty confident that karma will come through.
In my humble experience, karma (like water) has done a pretty darn good job of melting witches and ridding the world of evil, even if it's just a little bit at a time.
And eating melting witches is just as gratifying as watching a witch melt, so dig in to this delicious Melting Witch Halloween Chocolate Bark!
