Last year for Halloween and I had a little party at my house with my brother, his wife and their kids because my kids were desperate for Halloween anything. I saw a version of these broomsticks so many times all over Pinterest, but they used pretzels and since I couldn’t source gluten free pretzels I wasn’t going to do them.
However, walking down the gluten free isle I spotted rice sticks and thought I’d see if they worked. And they did!
Rice sticks or pretzels
Cheese sticks (the stringer type ones)
Cut the string cheese into thirds, so one cheese stick would do 3 broomsticks. Fray one end of the each slice of the cheese sticks to make your broom bristles.
Cut the rice sticks in half if they are fat like mine were.
Push the stick into the cheese.
Tie a chive around the cheese like in the picture.
Place on a plate to serve.
They are a little fiddly and some of the sticks broke, sometimes the cheese split, but they were worth it.
