Yummy Halloween Recipe: White Chocolate Covered “Funny Bones”

Whether you’re having a Halloween party this week, or you are just looking for a yummy treat to make with the kids, these vanilla covered “funny bones” are sure to be a hit.  Making them is super simple–especially if your kids are old enough to help out.  If you have ingredients left over from the Halloween Cake Pops I wrote about last week, this is a perfect use for them.

Here is what you’ll need:

1/2 lb.  Vanilla Candy Coating (you can use white chocolate chips but they are a little trickier to melt). I found an all natural vanilla candy coating at HEB (Texas grocery store chain).  It’s super yummy with no trans fats or other weird stuff.

1 bag of store brand pretzel sticks (Name brand pretzels tend to be longer so if you get the name brand just break them in half.)

About 2 cups of mini marshmallows

Here’s how to make them:

1). Skewer a marshmallow onto each end of the pretzel stick.  Make sure you skewer a rounded end leaving the flat ends untouched. (I didn’t do this, but it helps the bones look more “bone like”.)

2). Melt the vanilla candy coating in the microwave on 50% power for about 45 seconds at a time until completely melted.

3). Dip the entire pretzel with marshmallows into the melted vanilla coating.  Scoop out with a
fork letting the excess candy coating drip off.  You can sprinkle the ends with red sprinkles for a little more gory look.

4). Place the pretzels on a wax parchment or foil covered cookie sheet.  Refrigerate for about 10 minutes to let the candy coating harden.

5).  Enjoy!

You can store these in a sealed container at room temp. or refrigerate for your enjoyment later on.

  6. We love bones over here, very cute and oh so simple to do (didn’t ever notice the difference between pretzel sticks, now I’m curious!!)

  7. Pretty nice idea and design. I can’t believe its pretzel, it looks more like a mini cake to me. Thanks a lot for the recipe and detailed instructions. Will try this next Halloween.
