Witches broom pretzel treats are a great edible Halloween craft idea to do with the kids! The shopping list is small and the witchcraft satisfaction is big! These take under 10 minutes to make, certainly, you have time for that, don't you?
How to make Witches Broom Pretzel Treats
All you need for this simple treat are two ingredients. Peanut butter cups and pretzel sticks. And guess what? You are in luck because you can find these two ingredients at just about any convenience store. But be careful about the thickness of those pretzel sticks. I find Old Dutch pretzel sticks to be a perfect size.
- 0.2-inch diameter plastic or metal Straw (or two)
- Halloween plate or platter
Firstly, place Reese's miniatures in the freezer. Don't skip this step because it will help get the wax wrapper off. You certainly do not want the chocolate sticking to the sides. Leave them in the freezer for 5 minutes, so they can get firm.
Secondly, quickly unwrap your Reese's miniatures before they warm up. Place them with the larger side down on the wax wrapper. You want the smaller side up because it looks more like a broom that way.
Let the candies come to room temperature before you do the next step because it will make the next step much easier for you.
Using the straw Poke a hole into the center of the candy. Push it about 3/4 of the way through but not all the way through. The straw will remove just the right amount from the center.
Finally, place a pretzel stick into the hole but don't push too much, because you could break the chocolate.
Repeat! I think your kids will really enjoy making these because they are so easy. Be sure to make a bunch because they look even better when all together. So, all you have left to do is to add to your Halloween Dessert Stand!
NOTE: Most importantly be sure not to push the straw all the way to the other end of the candy. Why do you ask? Because going all the way through could break or crack the peanut buttercup… and then you will have to eat it… but that's not such a bad idea. So, you could just try it once to understand what I'm saying here. (wink, wink)
