The other day I spotted this great treat idea and finally broke down and ordered the Bone Appetit set from The Angel Company. I can't wait to get started...
hmmm...so many great sayings! There are several that would work with these bones! :)
Here's the recipe...and don't forget that this stamp is available only for a limited time!
Funny Bones Epicurious October 2009

More fun with pretzels and melted chocolate! Like the pretzel lollipop ghosts, these are a tasty mix of sweet and salty. With the white chocolate coating on them, they are uniformly charming. For the best effect, heap and jumble the little bones in a bowl rather than laying them on a plate. (Although I call for white chips, this is one place where lower grade white "coating" chocolate or bark is so easy to work with that it might be worth the trade-off in taste.)
Yield: Makes 36 bones
1 (12-ounce) package white chocolate chips (2 cups)
36 pretzel sticks and rods of various sizes
72 mini-marshmallows (about 1 cup)
1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
2. Place the chips in a double boiler over just-simmering water and melt, stirring frequently. As soon as the chips are just melted (there may even be a few solid ones left), remove the pan from the heat and remove the top section of the double boiler so the chocolate’s temperature doesn’t keep rising.
3. Stick marshmallows onto both ends of the pretzels, with the marshmallows’ flat sides parallel to the pretzel.
4. Dip each pretzel in the chocolate and lift out with a fork, letting the excess drip back in the bowl. Lay the bones on the baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes to harden the chocolate. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or at a cool room temperature.
I was tickled to get this cute card in the mail yesterday from Angela...thank you so much! I don't have this set myself (darn!) and so it's especially fun to see what others do with their stamps. I really like the fall colors. Angela paper pieced the entire outfit so it's really extra nice.
