Witches’ Brooms

JUMP TO RECIPE

I love when the Halloween decorations hit the stores. Well, maybe I don’t love when they show up (um, in July I’m usually thinking margaritas and ice cream, not costumes and pumpkin), but I love walking through the aisles of Michael’s and Target and planning what I’m going to do to my house come October. I had it all planned out this year. I was going to have everything painted, prepped, and ready to go come October 1st. Then I would decorate and photograph and post all my cute inspiration here. It was gonna be great.

And then we found out the short-sale home we were buying had gone into escrow.

And that we’d be closing escrow on Halloween.

{Enter dashed Halloween dreams.}

As a result, my great decorations this year consist of three baby pumpkins on my mantel. I managed to write B-O-O on them. That’s it. I walk around my neighborhood and see all the spooky ghosts and pumpkins and spider webs and graveyards. I thought about appeasing my daughters begging and getting out the Halloween bin.

But then I thought about the look that would be on my husbands’ face if he saw that I had decorated when he is frantically packing and moving stuff to storage.

*Sigh*

So this year I’m settling for a bunch of cute Halloween treats. I figure this way, my little corner of the internets is decorated. I guess I can settle for that.

Last week I teased you about these brooms. I figure you can’t have a witch hat without a broom!

Remember that brownie pan I told you about when I made the Candy Corn Brownie Bites? I used the same pan for these brooms. Afterwards I stuck a stick in them for the broom handle (pretzels would look cute too). Then I drizzled them with melted chocolate and peanut butter melts for the broom look. Easy-peasy!

How have you decorated for Halloween? Come on and elaborate in detail. I’m living vicariously this year!

Recipe by Crazy for Crust

Witches’ Brooms

Serving Size

Ingredients

  • 1 box brownie mix (Family Size), plus ingredients listed to make the brownies
  • Brownie Pop Pan (Wilton)
  • Chocolate candy melts (or chocolate chips)
  • Peanut butter candy melts (or peanut butter chips)
  • 24 lollipop sticks or long pretzel sticks

Instructions

  • 1. Mix brownies according to package directions. Spray your brownie pop pan liberally with cooking spray and fill each cavity 2/3 full of brownie mix. Bake 18-20 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely before dipping. (Note: the entire brownie mix makes about 24 brownies using this pan, meaning three trips through the oven.)
  • Melt your chocolate and peanut butter melts in separate bowls. Dip each lollipop stick into a little bit of melted chocolate and then press into the top of each brownie bite.
  • Transfer your melted chocolate into a zip-top sandwich bag. Snip off a small corner of the bag and use it to drizzle stripes down the sides of the brownie bite. Repeat with peanut butter melts.
  • Chill until hardened. Serve with Witches’ Hats.
