  • Place pretzel rods on ungreased baking sheets. Press a ball of dough onto cut end of each pretzel. Press dough firmly with a fork so that it resembles broom bristles.

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let brooms cool on baking sheets on wire racks for 2 minutes; move brooms directly to wire racks to cool completely.

  • Place brooms on waxed paper. Spoon melted candy coating over pretzel and cookie where they join. Allow to stand until firm. Decorate brooms as desired with colored icing.
