Witches’ Brooms Cookies – Fill the Cookie Jar

I am so excited to share this month’s Fill the Cookie Jar recipe. Our theme this month is Halloween/ Pumpkin cookies. How cute are these Witches’ Brooms Cookies?!

Witch Broom Cookies - Cute Halloween cookies made with flourless peanut butter cookies, pretzels and chocolate to look like a Witches Broom. gluten free

And the combination of peanut butter, pretzels and chocolate = YUM! At least in my book.

I went with my Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookie recipe because it is so peanut buttery. Just peanut butter, sugar and eggs – no other ingredients to dilute the peanut butter flavor. And as a bonus all you need are gluten free pretzels to make them safe for gluten restricted diets.

If you have peanut or egg allergies don’t fret. Use the Egg Free Sugar Cookie recipe instead.

The only things you need to be careful about is not overbaking the cookies and letting them cool for a little bit before removing from the pan to the cooling racks. The first one crumbled when I moved it too soon. It still tasted good. 🙂

Bake at 375 degrees until done, about 5-7 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes before moving to cooling racks to prevent cookie falling apart.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave (approximately 30-45 seconds). Smear a bit of chocolate where the cookie and pretzel meet.
Melt peanut butter chips in microwave (approximately 30-45 seconds) add a few drops of orange food coloring. Drizzle on the pretzel for decoration.
