Halloween BONES

We had these at our mom & me teen book club last week. They turned out so cute, and they were (unfortunately), pretty addictive.
Simple, and the kids enjoy helping with these.

1 bag pretzel rods
1 bag mini marshmallows
white dipping chocolate OR white chocolate morsels + 1 t. shortening

Place a marshmallow at the ends of the pretzel rods (both sides)

Carefully microwave chocolate until melted, at 30 second intervals - stirring between.
Once melted, stir and allow to very slightly cool.

Dip rods with marshmallows into chocolate mixture and with two forks, turn, and then place dipped rods on a sheet of waxed paper.

Allow to cool and dry.

Note - if the chocolate is too hot, the marshmallows will melt.
If the chocolate starts to cool and harden, it can be very carefully re-heated in the microwave, or shortening can be added and mixed in to thin it back out as it is re-heated.
