As someone who doesn’t have a lot of time for complex baking projects, I love desserts that come together in minutes but still look impressively festive like these broomstick treats.

The chocolate adheres perfectly to the pretzels, so no fancy equipment or skills needed!

Whether you’re hosting a Halloween bash or just want to leave a tray of fun sweets for trick-or-treaters coming to your door, these easy broomstick treats check all the boxes. Let’s dive into how to whip up a batch of these Halloween delights in 5 minutes flat!

Ingredients Needed for Halloween Broomstick Treats

To make these easy Halloween broomsticks, you only need 2 ingredients:

  • Pretzel sticks – I prefer using the thicker pretzel rods rather than skinny sticks which can break more easily. Sturdy rods hold up better when pressed into the peanut butter cups.
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – Regular size or mini cups both work well. Use your favorites!

That’s it! No baking, melting, or fancy equipment required.

Step-By-Step Instructions

Here’s the incredibly simple process for assembling these 5-minute broomstick treats:

  1. Start by unwrapping the desired number of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and placing them on a parchment-lined baking sheet or plate.
  2. Take a pretzel stick and carefully press one end into the bottom of the peanut butter cup, pushing it about halfway through. The chocolate should adhere nicely.
  3. Repeat the process, pressing pretzels into the remaining peanut butter cups until your tray is full of festive broomsticks!

And just like that, your Halloween broomstick treats are ready to devour. How easy is that?

Handy Tips for Decorating

While the broomsticks are plenty cute on their own, you can jazz them up with some extra decor if desired:

  • Drizzle with melted chocolate or caramel for added flair. Let set before serving.
  • Add candy eyeballs to the peanut butter cups or draw Jack O’Lantern faces for a fun touch.
  • Sprinkle with Halloween sprinkles or sanding sugar before the chocolate sets. Orange and black work perfectly!
  • Stick in strips of fruit leather or taffy to create “tassels” for the broomstick handles.
  • Arrange them standing upright in a tall glass or jar for dramatic presentation.

The options are endless when decorating these easy Halloween treats! Let your creativity fly.

Storing and Serving Suggestions

Broomstick treats taste best fresh but can be stored for a few days:

  • To maintain optimal texture, store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
  • You can also individually wrap sticks in plastic wrap if giving away as Halloween gifts.
  • Display them standing upright in a tall jar or glass for Halloween parties or just lay them flat on a platter.
  • They’re perfect to set out for trick-or-treating or to bring along to a fall festival or haunted house visit!

No matter how you choose to display or devour these festive broomsticks, they make the perfect easy treat to get in the Halloween spirit!
