Since we're serving up the witches' fingers, we need to serve up their brooms, too! These Witch's Broomstick Snacks are the perfect fun and festive treat.

Nobody loves candy corn more than me, which is why I think these Candy Corn Popsicles are such a treat! They're made with plain yogurt, honey or agave, orange juice, and pineapple juice, so they don't use any added sugar!
