(yeah, I know.. I'm a little late)
Witches Broomsticks
Ingredients
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup Peter Pan Creamy Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Parkay Original-stick, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
16 pretzel rods (8 1/2-inch long)
2 squares (2 oz each) chocolate bark coating, melted
1 tube (4.25 oz each) red or orange decorator icing



Directions
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine flour and baking soda in medium bowl.
Beat peanut butter, Parkay and brown sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy.
Add egg and egg yolk. Gradually add flour mixture beating on low speed after each addition until blended. Shape dough into 16 (1-1/4-inch) balls.
Place pretzel rods on ungreased baking sheets. Press ball of dough onto end of each pretzel. Press fork firmly into each dough ball to leave indentations resembling broom bristles.

Bake 12 minutes. Let brooms cool on baking sheets placed on wire racks 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Place brooms on wax paper.
Spoon melted bark coating only over part where pretzel and cookie join; let stand until firm.
Decorate as desired with colored icing.
