Skeleton Bones

Sweet salty is a classic combination, and this treat is perfect for Halloween! Recipe adapted from Sharon Bowers, Ghoulish Goodies


  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Assemble the bones by pushing both ends of the pretzel stick into the flat side of the mini marshmallows using:
    • 36 pretzel sticks
    • 72 marshmallows, small
  3. Place in a double boiler over just simmering water:
    • 12 oz white chocolate chips
  4. Stir frequently until chocolate chips have melted.
  5. As soon as chocolate chips have melted, remove the entire double boiler from the heat.
  6. Dip each pretzel-marshmallow bone into the melted chocolate and lift out with a fork, letting the excess drip back into the bowl.
  7. Lay the bones on the prepared baking and refrigerate for 30 minutes to harden the chocolate. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
