Pretzel & Marshmallow Bones

 

Everybody knows my love, nay, my addiction we might call it, to  sweet and salty combinations in food. Chocolate covered pretzels are only topped on my favorites list by buttered popcorn with M&M’s on top at the movie theater.

Yes, I totally just said that. You take a bag of movie popcorn – make sure it’s buttered!- and dump on M&M’s, the peanut ones being my favorite. I highly suggest you eat this instead of all your main meals that day, as the calorie count is about 3000. Or 4000. I can’t bring myself to look it up. Tastiest invention ever and I wish I had never been told about it because once you start, you can’t stop.

So these little bones have been around the internet block a few times, mini marshmallows stuck on the ends of pretzels, dipped in white chocolate and ending up looking like bones.

So adorable.

So fiddly.

But when you have slave  child labor helpers, this task goes much, much faster! This is a great project for kids to help you with. They create the bones while mom or dad dips them in the white chocolate. And gee whiz, when they “accidentally” break a few, they get to munch on pretzels at the same time.

Not a bad deal at all.

 

children doing the mini Pretzel & Marshmallow Bones by having the marshmallows stuck on the ends of pretzels, dipping in white chocolate and ending up looking like bones.

Ingredients Needed:

10 oz white chocolate
50-60 mini pretzel sticks, allowing for lots to break
100 or so mini colored marshmallows

I used colored marshmallows in these because I have a deep love affair with them. They bring back childhood memories of the large ones that used to be available, do you remember those? I haven’t seen them in decades and I look every time I am at the store. So dear Kraft, please bring those back to Canada. It’s not that I don’t like the neat ones I can pick up in the States – other than I have to be in the States to do it!– but those large colored marshmallows should be made available to us for the summer. I want to roast the green ones over a campfire again please. What was your favorite color? I always thought the green ones tasted the best.

So when using the colored marshmallows, if you are a perfectionist, you will have to do two coats. And to be honest, even the pretzels show through a bit with one coat. For some reason none of the recipes I saw tell you this, the one in my cute little Halloween recipe book I just picked up makes no mention of it at all.

So if you are picky, double the amount of chocolate and allow the time for two coats.

This batch “as is” makes about 40 bones. I was ok with the colors showing through.

Melt your  chocolate in a large 4 cup glass measuring cup. Take your created bones – a marshmallow stuck on each end of a pretzel and dip it in the chocolate, coating all sides. using a fork, lift it up, tap the excess chocolate off and lay it on a sheet covered in wax paper. Put the sheet in the fridge when you are done to harden them up fast, then if you desire, do another coating.

The colored marshmallows make these taste ah-mazing and I did like the colors showing through a bit, very cute.

This is my last Halloween recipe post, I do believe, unless I forgot something and the chances of that are very, very high. With our Halloween open house, the last few days have been a blur of baking, creating, decorating and cleaning.

I am off to clean the house, throw on my costume and go join the kids at school for their Halloween parties this afternoon.

I hope everyone has a safe, horribly haunted, gruesomely great, spooky Halloween!

I’ll  leave you with some appropriate Shakespeare:

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

Hmm.

Maybe I’ll make that next year.

Love,
