1/2 cup Cane sugar
1/2 cup Coconut oil or margarine
2 Tbsp. Nut or seed butter
4 Tbsp Dairy free milk
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1 1/2 cups. Gluten Free Flour *
1/8 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
Gluten Free Pretzel Sticks

For the witches brooms:
Take the rolled ball and stick a pretzel stick in one end. Gently place on the baking sheet and form the shape of a broom. Take a wet fork and gently press down to form the "bristles".
For the spiders:
Take the rolled ball and gently place on the cookie sheet. Slightly flatten and take pretzels and push 4 in on each side to from the spiders legs. Add two chocolate chips at the front for the eyes.
7. Bake for about 12- 14 minutes, until slightly firm to the touch.
8. Remove from oven and cool completely.
9. In a pan on the stove heat chocolate chips and coconut oil over low-medium heat. Stir until mostly dissolved and take off heat. Drizzle over witches brooms and spiders.
