Witches Broom Pretzels

These simple and easy Witches Broom Pretzels are the perfect way to get in the spooky Halloween spirit! Kick off the Halloween season with these fun treats today!

I love easy recipes. I just do. They’re great to have on hand when you want to make something creative but you just don’t have the time to devote to an hour long (or more!) project.

I also love when I can find a recipe that my kids can help with. There’s just something about being together in the kitchen that allows for the creativity to flow. It’s a time when we can bond together, work together and create together and as a busy mom, I cherish those moments.

This is why I love this Witch Broom recipe so much. With just a few simple ingredients and mere moments of time, these adorable treats are done and ready to be enjoyed.

They are perfect for a fun after-school snack or even for a school party as well. All I know is that when I make them, I fall in love with the ease and taste of them over and over again.

Give yourself a break this Halloween season and give this simple Witch Broom recipe a try!

Witches Broom Pretzels Ingredients

How to Make These Halloween Snacks:

Line a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper.

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 20-second increments, mixing after each, until smooth.

Add to a piping bag with a writing tip or simply use a plastic sandwich bag and snip a small edge off.

To make sure chocolate will stick to the brooms, add a small dot of chocolate to the paper then add the end of the pretzel stick on top to secure.

Start squeezing the bag in a back-and-forth motion at the end of the pretzel stick, forming the straw/bristles of the broom.  Then decorate your bristles with your favorite Halloween colored sprinkles.

Don’t be scared by this Zombie Halloween Popcorn and Candy recipe! While it may look a little creepy, it’s totally worth each and every bite! 

This is one of those Halloween treats that your kiddos just won’t be able to get enough of. (and who knows…maybe you, too!) There’s just something so hilarious and spooky about this Zombie Halloween Popcorn that will have them literally eyeballing every bite just to see what they are about to it. 

I love making this to have around the house here and there, but it’s also a fun treat for October birthdays, sleepovers and even a really cool treat to take to class parties. I can’t tell you the double takes that occur once people lay their eyes on this tasty treat. It’s hilarious.

Every year, my kids ask for this popcorn recipe by name. They love the bright colors, and of course, the random eyeballs that can be found without. Plus, they love being able to help make it as well so it really is a fun family effort each and every time that we create it. 

If you are looking for a silly and delicious treat this Halloween season, this is the one for you!

DIY Mummy Water Bottles [Quick Halloween Craft]

DIY Halloween Crafts Mummy

Water Bottle Halloween Crafts 

These DIY Water Bottle Mummy’s are the perfect Halloween craft for all ages! Super simple and a fun and festive way to kick off the Halloween season.

If you are anything like me, you hate wasting anything. No matter what it is, I swear I can look at a piece of “trash” and see some sort of craft use for it. To me, that’s a beautiful thing! I love being able to reuse something again instead of dumping it into a landfill and also showing my children how to be creative as well. 

What I love about this DIY Water Bottle Mummy craft is that it takes so little time and so little effort, but the end result is absolutely adorable. All you need are literally a couple of smaller water bottles (used ones are totally fine!) and a few simple other items that you more than likely have around the home, and before you realize it, you’ve created a super adorable (or spooky if you want!) water bottle mummy that is the perfect Halloween decoration. 

Can you imagine having a few of these lining your porch or windows Halloween night? Absolutely spectacular and so much festive fun!
