Recipe: Mini witches brooms

Posted October 17, 2013

These mini witches broom snacks cast quite a spell on your Lil’ Chefs Halloween party.

Conjure up a batch of these salty-sweet Halloween treats and watch how fast your child and his or her friends gobble them up! These sweet and salty snacks are sure to be swept away in no time, so you'll want to make lots.

What you'll need
• Roll of Fruit by the Foot
• Thin pretzels

How to make it
1. For each one, cut a 2-inch length from a roll of Fruit by the Foot.

2. With the shorter ends on the side, fringe the bottom of the strip (leaving a 1/4-inch border uncut along the top) to create thin broom bristles.

3. Then moisten the upper edge of the fruit with a drop of water and tightly wrap it around one end of a thin pretzel-stick broom handle.
