White Chocolate Bones

My girls have been dying to do something in the "goodies" department for Halloween...I figured that making some "bones" just might be the solution. 
Is it a simple recipe?  Yes. 
Do kiddles love making them? Yes again.
Is it messy?  To a certain degree, oh yeah.  There will be some finger licking going on.

If I had my way we'd be using dark chocolate though. (Momma loves her some dark chocolate!)

Pretzel Sticks
Marshmallows (regular, not jumbo or mini)
White Chocolate Morsels

1.  Line a baking sheet with either wax paper or parchment paper.
2.  Press one end of a pretzel stick completely through the center of a marshmallow.  Position the marshmallow at the edge of the pretzel stick. Repeat this step for the opposite end of the pretzel stick.

3.  Place the assembled pretzels & marshmallows on the lined baking sheet.

4.  In a microwave safe bowl, pour 1/2 cup of white chocolate morsels and heat on high for 30 seconds.  Stir and heat at 10 second intervals until morsels are completely melted.  Be sure to stir between each heat session. Allow to cool enough to touch. (about 2-3 minutes)  Repeat step as necessary.

5.  Holding the center of a pretzel & marshmallow stick begin to coat the entire stick with the melted white chocolate.  A pastry brush or teaspoon can be used.  Dipping the sticks can cause the marshmallows to come off.

6.  Place chocoalte coated "bones" on lined baking sheet and allow chocolate to set. Cooling time varies by chocolate thickness. (10-15 minutes)
