A healthy Halloween snack recipe for Cheesy Witches Pretzel Broomsticks that are fun for kids to eat and make with only three simple ingredients!
Halloween is synonymous with candy and treats galore, but there are plenty of healthier options that are fun for kids to eat and make. A few ideas are Monster Joe's (a twist on sloppy joes), Monster Mouths (a fun, healthy snack), The Vomiting Pumpkin (great party appetizer) and these Not-So-Scary Monster Face Pizzas (lunch or dinner recipe).
Those are a few of my healthy Halloween favorites from the archives. These Cheesy Witches Broomsticks are really simple to put together, you only need a few ingredients. I saw this idea in Kroger's MyMagazine and thought it was too fun not to share.
"When Witches go riding
and black cats are seen
The moon laughs and whispers
Tis near Halloween!"
