Witches’ Brew with Broomsticks

While growing up, my boys enjoyed helping me make this beverage with "broomsticks." Now I use the recipe with my grandchildren. —Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania

    Prep: 25 min. Cook: 10 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 orange candy slices
  • 8 cinnamon sticks (5 inches)
  • 8 pieces black shoestring licorice (10 inches)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup red-hot candies
  • 6 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup instant chocolate drink mix

Directions

  • For broomsticks, on a lightly sugared surface, roll each orange slice into a 1/4-in.-thick triangle. With wet scissors, snip bottoms of triangles to resemble broom bristles. Wrap pointed end of each around a cinnamon stick. Coil a licorice piece around the top of each orange slice to secure to cinnamon stick; set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, bring water and red-hots to a boil, stirring frequently until dissolved. Whisk in milk and chocolate drink mix. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat until hot. Pour into cups or mugs. Serve with broomstick stirrers.

    This was a very big success. Where did you get the cups and saucers?

    I made this recipe for a family gathering. It did not get the ratings I expected but it was eaten fairly quickly. I would definitely make it again.
