When you need some easy Halloween appetizers, these Witch's Broomstick Snacks are a perfect choice. The savory Halloween themed food is not creepy like so many option, but fun and perfect for all ages.
These easy cheese and pretzel broomstick appetizers are sure to be a big hit at any Halloween Party. The witch broom snacks are simple to assemble and when stood up fill a nice amount of space on a Halloween party buffet layout. I especially like that you can keep extras of the 3 ingredients needed and whip some more witch's broomsticks together in the bat of a newts eye. As all good hosts know, being prepared is the most essential part of throwing a party after all.
Witch's Broomstick Snacks Portion Planning
I like to plan for at least two witches broomstick snacks per Halloween party guest. If you have avid cheese fans, they may go faster.
While there are ample dessert options for celebrating spooky season, savory options like these Witch Broomstick appetizers are less common. Here are a few more of my favorites.
If you are looking for another savory Halloween appetizer to serve, my Eyeball Deviled Eggs, Pumpkin Bean Dip or Mummy Hot Dogs are great choices.

This doesn't say how you got half the broom to be orange. Did you find orange string cheese? I have never seen it! Will look for it though..

Yes, I can sometimes find dual colored string cheese in my area. I expect it would work out just as well with cheese sticks, if you let them come warm closer room temp to avoid breakage.
I am making these for party in 24 hours. I am wondering if the cheese will make the pretzel sticks too soft by tomorrow evening?
Robin Gagnon says
Sorry for the late response (it was a busy weekend here), the closer to serving time the best. I hope everything worked out.

Some tips I wish had been in the main instructions: 1. Use room temperature cheese. 2. the younger skinnier chives are easier to tie than the older firmer ones. Your chives must be really long to wrap twice. 3. Do not use the rounded end to be the end of the broom straws..or cut them off so it will be even and can stand up. 4.Fan out the cut cheese to make it stand up better. 5. Make-ahead tip: WRap the cut cheese with the chive where the cuts just meet the solid cheese, keep at room temp and stick in the pretzels at the last minute so they don't get soggy.
