Witch’s Broomstick Cookies

Witch's Broomstick Cookies

I have Halloween cookie envy again. These looked so easy! And adorable. They were supposed to have gorgeous chocolate and butterscotch drizzles across the middle. But the cookie batter was crumbly and the chocolate was gloopy — definitely not the pretty drizzle I had in mind at all!

The cookies were so ugly to me when they came out I wasn’t even going to bother with the chocolate. But then I tasted one and it tasted pretty dang good. So I decided to add the chocolate after all and take them to the Halloween party with us. They have been elevated a bit in looks with their smeared-on glops of chocolate. Certainly still not up to the vision in my head, but almost presentable.

Maybe I don’t have to put them back in the closet after all.

But go look at Budget Gourmet Mom’s beautiful broomstick cookies. You’ll see why I have cookie envy.

I’m not even going to post the recipe because I’m convinced I must have done something wrong. Visit Budget Gourmet Mom and maybe you will have better luck …

But hey, isn’t our little ceramic pumpkin cute? We picked it up at a gas station on a trip up to see my parents a couple years ago. My daughter saw it and just had to have it and I caved. How can you resist that cuteness? Now it’s a little smile added to our table every October. :)

  1. I made the same cookies last year! Sounds like your dough was a little dry but I think they’re awesome and that little pumpkin is absolutely adorable. Happy Foodie Halloween!

      Well when I saw it was so dry, I added some peanut butter, then some chai tea, then an egg, then more chai … eventually I gave up and just worked with it. They were a big hit at the party though! Everyone thought they were cute.
