Witches Broomsticks & Spooky Slime Drinks – My Family Ties

Witches Broomsticks & Spooky Slime Drinks

Halloween Party Ideas

Coming up with new ideas for Halloween, I just had to do some gory and slimy looking drinks, and these fitted the bill as they look really slimy and horrible! (but taste great) The Witches Broomsticks are so easy to do and a fun quick party food to put together with your children, with the added bonus that they get to eat some of the ingredients and the sweet in the liquorice wheel.  All made and finished within 20 minutes.


Either Japanese Pocky Sticks or milk chocolate Mikado sticks

Liquorice wheels 

For the spooky slime drinks

Cream soda

Innocent smoothies – I used – Super Smoothie (kiwi, lime, wheatgrass) and Energise (Strawberry, cherry, guarana) 

A little red food paste

A little green food paste


For the Witches Broomsticks

First take the liquorice wheels and unravel them, cut into equal lengths – about 4-5 cm.

Cut the lengths of liquorice into three, I left about 1-2 inches left on the top.

Place around the end of the Mikado/Pocky stick and then wrap a single piece of liquorice around the top of the liquorice (broom) lengths.

That’s it! Super easy to do.

For the spooky slime drinks

Fill the glasses up to two thirds with the Innocent smoothie drinks.

Add one red and one green food paste to each drink.

Top up with the cream soda.

That’s it! Another really easy and quick addition to your Halloween party.
