Witch's Broomstick Cookies

Witch's Broomstick Cookies
Adapted from Betty Crocker

It's that time of year again...time for ghosts and ghouls and monsters to walk among us. That's right, darlings, it's Halloween! Welcome to the #GreatHallowTweet Halloween BlogHop. This was the brain child of the fabulous Renee at Flamingo Musings. During this week leading up to Halloween a devilish group of bloggers are causing mayheim and carnage all over the interwebs. My kind of people. ;)

Be sure to visit my fellow ghouls and goblins and see what Halloween treats they have cooking.(The list is the under Great Hallow column on the left panel.)

My first contribution to this year's #GreatHallowTweet are these adorable Witch's Broomstick Cookies. They are so easy to make and are a great treat to make with the kids. Enjoy!

Make: 20 cookies

Ingredients:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons cream or milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
20 pretzel rods, about 5 inches long
2 teaspoons butter
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cups white chocolate chips, melted

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Mix brown sugar, butter, cream and vanilla in medium bowl. Stir in flour and salt. Shape dough into twenty 1 1/4-inch balls.

2. Place pretzel rod on ungreased cookie sheet. Press ball of dough onto the end of each pretzel rod. Press dough with fork to resemble "bristles" of broom.

3. Bake about 12 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely on wire rack, about 30 minutes.

4. Cover cookie sheet with waxed paper. Place brooms on waxed paper. Heat butter and chocolate chips over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth; remove from heat.

5. Spoon melted chocolate over brooms, leaving about 1 inch at top of pretzel handle and bottom halves of cookie bristles uncovered. Drizzle with melted white chocolate chips. Let stand until chocolate is set.

Hey, my broom! I wondered where I left it. ;)

What a cute cookie! I LOVE these. At first I thought you some how melted a Hershey kiss on that broom, and I wondered how did she do that? Silly me.

These are just about the cutest Halloween cookies I think I've ever seen. Nicely decorated. They almost look real. Now you just need a teeny tiny witch to ride on them.

Love, love, love these. I saw them on Pinterest. I could use a spare broom now and them to get to the store. Brooms disguised as a cookie! How clever.Very compact, too.
I hope I can PIN this. I am sure it will be hit.
