These skeleton treats are so cute and super easy to make!

I came across an adorable Halloween party table at Wants and Wishes. You will want to go there. Way cute! She made some really cute pretzel skeletons for her party. I just had to try them on my girls.

They have not seen them yet. I sent the treats in their lunch boxes today!

I think they turned out really cute.

I made them in a BIG hurry. My pretzels could have used another dip–just to make them look whiter.

Here is what you need:

Now, I just used store-bought brownies because I didn’t have time to make my own.

As I’m sure you know, Little Debbies come “2 to a pack”. If you ask me, they come one to a pack. However, there is that little dividing line so they can easily be broken into two pieces.

I used one little square. I wrapped it in plastic wrap, so it wouldn’t dry out as much.

For the pretzels, I just used a candy coating on regular pretzels-no rocket science there.

My skewer was a regular sized bamboo skewer. I cut it down to about 4 inches with my kitchen shears.

For the faces on the marshmallows, I used a food safe marker. I would like to have a finer tip on a marker. I’ll have to be on the look out for those. For the eyes I used the letter D and a backward D. I thought that made the eyes look vacant, like a skeleton.

I had myself a little skeleton treat assembly line going in my kitchen yesterday.

•Dipped pretzels

•Wrapped brownies

•Trimmed skewers

•Marshmallows with faces drawn

•Bags & trimmed ribbon

Set a pretzel on top of the brownie just to make sure you have it positioned correctly. Stick the skewer through the bottom opening of the pretzel. Thread about five more pretzels onto the skewer. Pop the marshmallow on top.

Stick it all in a bag and put a bow on it. Easy peasy!

It is truly amazing how a cellophane bag and a fancy ribbon dress up a snack!

I didn’t go crazy and make these for all the trick-or-treaters that come by tonight. I mainly just wanted to make them for my girls. I did make a couple of extras for a couple of extra goblins we know.

I was rather pleased with these little skeleton treats.

They really take no time at all to make. Hurry, there is still time. If you are seeing this post at a different time of year, just put it on your Pinterest board for next year! You’ll want to make them–quick, easy, delicious!

While making Christmas goodies for my husband to take to work, I stumbled upon a good idea.

Now, it may not be a new idea, very few of them are. It was new to me though.

I was making chocolate dipped pretzels-the long kind. I didn’t want to lay them on waxed paper to dry because I didn’t want them to be flat on one side. I know. I’m weird.

Besides that, when you lay them out to dry, the coating kinda oozes off the pretzel. So then, not only is it flat on one side, but it also has a strange shape jutting out from the side.

Quite the dilemma! Don’t you think?

I could stick them in glasses. No. They would squish together and stick to the glass.

I had to find something more shallow than a glass. A coffee cup?! No. The pretzels would fall over.

But wait!

What if I put some dried beans in the bottom of the cup?! And what if the cup were actually a bowl?!

Ta-da! Looks like this is gonna work!

I guess you noticed that I used other vessels as well. I did have to choose carefully. The vessels with flat bottoms worked best. The pretzels had to find their way to the bottom of the beans and rest on the bowl.

I dipped some pretzels in white almond bark and some in brown. Sorry, I couldn’t say white and chocolate. Vanilla and chocolate, yes. It’s like milk. Why do we call one by its flavor and one by its color?! Sorry, I got off track for a minute there.

After the dipped pretzels were dry, I drizzled them with red and green candy melts like these.

Some of the chocolate pretzels got sprinkles. You have to add the sprinkles before the chocolate dries-duh.

I put the finished products in a little clear bag with a wrapping paper topper.

I ended up making about 100 pretzels. I hope his co-workers like them!
