Happy October! If you like chocolate covered pretzels, then this is the snack/candy for you! I put my kids to work assembling the “bones” and I dipped them in chocolate in peace.
I made approx. 45 “bones,” and ended up with a small amount of leftover marshmallows, and over half a bag of pretzels – my kids love to snack, so they won’t go to waste. If you don’t have a use for the leftovers, you may want to adjust accordingly!
White Chocolate “Bones” Adapted from Ghoulish Goodies
1 bag of mini-marshmallows
1 bag of pretzel sticks
1 bag of white chocolate or white candy coating (16 ounces)
Break the pretzel sticks in half, then stick a marshmallow onto both ends, pushing to secure to the pretzel – at times I felt like I was skewering them!
When you (or your kids) are all done assembling the “bones,” melt the chocolate in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, place water in a pot and place a glass bowl on top so the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water. Place the chocolate in the glass bowl and stir gently until melted. Note: the water should just be simmering.
When the chocolate (or coating) is melted, place the “bones” in (one at a time) and coat with the chocolate. With a small fork lift the “bone” out and place it on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
When all of the “bones” have been coated with chocolate, place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for thirty minutes. Take them out, and try not to eat them all by yourself. . or at least not all in one sitting!
