Tombstone Trio

Tombstone TrioMake no bones about it — these three skeletons are a scarily sweet treat. Create the edible scene with staples found in your grocery store's snack and baking aisles.

Recipe Ingredients:

Large marshmallows
Thick pretzel stick pieces
Melted white baking chocolate
Chocolate frosting
Chocolate graham crackers
Green tinted coconut "grass"
Chocolate-filled butter cookies

Cooking Directions:

  1. For each skeleton, cut a large marshmallow in half forming two rounds. Dip marshmallow rounds and some thick pretzel stick pieces into melted white baking chocolate; place on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Chill until set.
  2. Using a pastry bag fitted with a small round tip, pipe chocolate frosting onto marshmallow halves to make skeleton faces.
  3. Pipe a little frosting on a chocolate graham cracker and attach a marshmallow skeleton head. Pipe a little frosting lengthwise onto the undersides of coated pretzel pieces, attaching them to the graham cracker to create a skeleton body. Use some melted white chocolate baking chocolate to pipe ribs onto the skeleton over the spine.
  4. Line a serving platter with green tinted coconut "grass." Sprinkle on crushed chocolate graham crackers as "dirt." Stick the remaining marshmallow halves partly underneath the skeleton-topped graham crackers to prop them up, place on "dirt."
  5. Using chocolate frosting, decorate a chocolate-filled butter cookie as a tombstone. Stick a cookie into each marshmallow half, positioning it as a tombstone.
