Halloween Kids' Craft: Pretzel Skeletons
White chocolate-covered pretzels and marshmallows combine to create a fun Halloween treat that kids will love helping to assemble before they devour them.
- white chocolate candy melts
- large marshmallows
- small pretzel knots
- small pretzel rods
- 6-inch lollipop stick
- food-safe black marker
Melt candy melts in microwave according to package directions. Dip pretzel rods and knots into melted candy and set aside on wax paper to allow white chocolate to harden.
Slide a large marshmallow about halfway down a lollipop stick (Image 1). Top marshmallow with three white chocolate-dipped pretzel knots to form the skeleton's rib cage (Image 2). Finish off the skeleton's body with a large marshmallow for the head (Image 3).
Add Arms, Legs and Face
Snap a pretzel rod in half and push the broken ends into the underside of the bottom marshmallow for legs (Image 1). Using an edible-ink marker, add a face to the top marshmallow (Image 2). Break the top off two pretzel knots to become the skeleton's arms (Image 3). Insert arms into the top pretzel knot in the stack of three (Image 4).
