Did you ever read the Funny Bones stories as a child? I did and I loved them. I cant look at a skeleton without thinking ‘In a dark dark street, there was a dark dark house’… These spooky treats remind me of the characters in those stories – skeletons but sweet not scary. They’d look fantastic on a sweetie platter or a Halloween party table and they’re quite easy to make.
You Will Need
Large white marshmallows
Small white marshmallows
Black candy melts *(you can find them here)
White fudge covered Pretzels (or cover your own in melted white chocolate)
Cocktail stick (or cocktail umbrella like I used!)
Kebab sticks or lolly sticks

- Melt a handful of candy melts in a microwave or using a bain-marie – a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water
- Use a cocktail stick to draw on some eyes, nose and a toothy smile and allow to dry and set
- Push a mini marshmallow on to the cocktail stick about 5cm / 2 in down
- Paint a little candy on top and thread a pretzel on top
- Add a little candy melt on to that and add a second and third pretzel
- Top with a skull marshmallow
- Turn the skeleton over and add a little candy melt to the back, just to help hold the pieces in place
- Allow to set
- Cut the kebab sticks to your desired length
If you have any skull marshmallows left over, keep hold of them to top a spooky hot chocolate.
