*Boneyard Treats*


In preparation for my Halloween party, I have been making easy and delicious desserts. I came across this recipe, to make “bones” and decided to try it. The whole process took about 30-40 minutes. It was very easy and the end result was chillingly tasty! It took only 3 ingredients and no need to bake, just air dry. After I assembled the bones and dipped the pretzels in frosting, I set them on parchment paper and let them dry overnight. The next day they were ready to eat. So easy, tasteful and they truly look like bones. This will now be a treat to make every Halloween!

What You Need:

  • 1 package of Wilton meltable candy wafers, in white
  • 1 bag of small pretztel sticks (or your choice in size)
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows 

How To Make:

  1. Follow the instructions on the candy wafers package to melt the candy in a wide bowl.
  2.  For each bone, press marshmallows onto both ends of a pretzel stick or rod, with the marshmallows’ flat sides parallel to the pretzel.
  3. Dip each pretzel into the melted candy to coat it. Lift it out with a fork, letting the excess drip back into the bowl. Place the bone onto a sheet of waxed or parchment paper to set at room temperature.
  4. Let dry completely and enjoy
