Witch's Broomstick


8 gumdrop orange slices
8 cinnamon sticks (each about 5 inches long)
2 black licorice whips


1. Roll gumdrop orange slices into triangles with rolling pin on surface a lightly sprinkled with sugar.  With wet scissors, snip bottom of triangles for broom bristles.

2. For each broomstick, wrap narrow end of triangle around cinnamon stick to make broom bristles.  Tie in place with short piece of licorice whip.    

Makes 8 broomsticks.

These make cute decorations on a snack tray but the cinnamon sticks aren't really edible (though they are fun to lick a little bit or put in hot chocolate).
