      Ghosts on Broomsticks

      Prep Time:30 min

      Makes:14 candies

      1 roll (0.75 oz) Fruit by the Foot chewy fruit snack in 3-foot roll

      (any flavor), unwrapped

      14 pretzel sticks (2 to 3 inches long)

      2/3 cup white vanilla chips, melted

      1 1/2 teaspoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips (52 chips)

      1. Line large cookie sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper.

      Unroll fruit snack roll. With kitchen scissors, cut 3/4-inch-long

      fringe on one long side of snack roll. Cut fringed roll into 2-inch


      2. To make each “broomstick,” wrap piece of fringe around one end of

      pretzel; press to seal. Place “broomsticks” on waxed paper-lined

      cookie sheet.

      3. Drop rounded 1/2 teaspoonfuls of melted white vanilla chips

      on “broomsticks.”

      4. Press 3 miniature chocolate chips into each “ghost” for eyes and

      Cobweb Cookies

      Prep Time:10 min

      Start to Finish:1 hr 15 min

      Makes:2 1/2 dozen 4- to 5-inch cookies

      3/4 cup Gold Medal all-purpose or unbleached flour

      1/2 cup granulated sugar

      1/4 cup vegetable oil

      1/4 cup milk

      1/2 teaspoon vanilla

      2 eggs

      Powdered sugar

      1. Beat all ingredients except powdered sugar in medium bowl with

      electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Pour batter into plastic

      squeeze bottle with narrow opening. Heat 8-inch skillet over medium

      heat until hot; grease lightly.

      2. Working quickly, squeeze batter to form 4 straight, thin lines

      that intersect at a common center point to form a star shape. To form

      cobweb, squeeze thin streams of batter to connect lines.

      3. Cook 30 to 60 seconds or until bottom is golden brown; carefully

      turn. Cook until golden brown; remove from skillet. Cool on wire


      4. Heat oven to 325ºF. Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet 5 to 7

      minutes or until almost crisp (cookies will become crisp as they

      cool). Remove from cookie sheet; cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

      Store cookies in container with loose-fitting cover.

      (Total time will vary; cook or bake time is per batch.)
