Halloween Week ~ Broom Sticks

I'm kind of sad that this is the end of Halloween Week. I really liked doing these recipes! I may have to spill over into next week a bit since I have a few more Halloween-y recipes left to try.

These little broom sticks were just too cute to pass up. Of course, mine don't look near as good as the source photo, but you get the idea.

Jesse loved them. He came down from his playroom, grabbed one and ran off. 3 minutes later he came back down and said "Mama, I'm just gonna take this whole plate to my room, ok? Thanks." And they were gone. He ate all 4. Of course he wanted no part of dinner an hour later, but whatever.

Ok guys, have a great weekend! We've got nothing going on (at least I don't think we do), so it should be nice and relaxing. SHOULD be...we shall see ;)


'Broom Sticks'
Source: Adapted from Be Different Act Normal


3 sticks of string cheese
6 pretzel sticks
Fresh chives


1. Using kitchen scissors, cut the ends off each string cheese stick (about 2 inches long).

2. Cut one end of the cheese into strips, being careful not to cut all the way to the top. Fan out cheese strips as best you can.

3. Take one side of the scissors and gently stick it into the uncut side of the cheese, to make a little hole for the pretzel. Slowly twist the pretzel stick into the hole, careful not to tear the cheese.

4. Tie a string of fresh chives around the top of each cheese piece. Enjoy!
