Yummy Treats - Halloween broom sticks


Since October is upon us, and Halloween will be here before we know it, I figured I'd add to my collection of Halloween treats for this year. I made a really cute witches hat chocolate treat a couple of weeks ago, so today I decided I'd make a broom stick!


I video'd the process for Youtube which you can check out here, or read below for the recipe :)

This recipe is really easy to follow and you really don't need many ingredients. These would be really easy and fun treats to make with your kids. Perfect snacks for a halloween party, or to give to trick or treaters. To get started, you'll need:


Mikado milk chocolate sticks
Reeces Peanut butter cup miniatures
Chocolate (to melt and use as glue)

First step is to gather all of your ingredients, and then start unwrapping your peanut butter cups & mikado sticks. 

Pop your chocolate chips into a bowl, and microwave at 15 second intervals until the chocolate has melted. Mine took 45 seconds, but this could vary depending on your microwave so I'd recommend checking regularly.



When  your chocolate has melted, set it aside for a second whilst you chop your mikado sticks. Cut them so that you only have the chocolate left.


Then it's time to create your broom sticks. Take the rounded edge of your mikado stick, dip it into the chocolate and place it into the center of your peanut butter cup. (I did try using the other edge as it would save some time, but it just wouldn't stick).







Leave your peanut butter cups for a few minutes to set a little, before going back and dropping another dollop of chocolate on the top to cover the biscuit center.



Then it's time to enjoy! If you make these halloween broom sticks, please share them with me. I'd love to see your creations :)
