Hi Friends! I’ve had such a great week sharing all of our fun Halloween party favor, gift, and classroom treat ideas with you all! Your response has been incredible and I am so appreciative of each and every one of you and all of your fantastic feedback and comments—thank you! If you missed any of the posts here they are so you can take a look…our Stay Bright this Halloween Night: Glow Stick Gift Idea, our cute Franken-Slime gift idea, and our Scare the Boo Boos Away: Band-Aid Halloween Gift Idea. Today, I have another Halloween treat to share with you all…our No Bones About It—You’re a Sweet Friend: Marshmallow and Pretzel Skeleton Gift Idea. These sweet little skeletons are very easy to assemble. Just pair them with our “No Bones About It” free printable tag and you will have an adorable Halloween treat for friends, neighbors, or classmates in no time!
To make these marshmallow and pretzel skeletons you will need white chocolate covered pretzels, regular sized marshmallows, mini marshmallows, black candy melts, lollipop sticks, treat bags, and our “No Bones About It” printable (located at the bottom of this post).
Step 1: First, take a marshmallow and push it onto the end of one of your lollipop sticks. You will need to make the skeleton face on the marshmallow first. To make the face, I melted a small amount of black candy melts in a dish and with a toothpick drew the eyes, nose and mouth onto the marshmallow. Allow it to dry fully. This is the most time consuming step—the rest of the assembly takes only a few minutes.
Step 2: Next, pick 5 pretzels that you will layer on the stick to create the “bones.”
Step 3: Place the stick through the smallest part of the pretzel.
Step 4: Stack all of the pretzels one after the other on the stick.
Step 5: To keep all of the pretzel “bones” in place use a mini marshmallow as the anchor. Slide the stick through the mini marshmallow and push it all the way up until it meets the pretzels.
Step 6: Your marshmallow and pretzel skeletons are done! What cuties!
To assemble your No Bones About It—You’re a Sweet Friend: Marshmallow and Pretzel Skeletons just follow these 3 steps:
- After your marshmallow and pretzel skeletons are assembled it’s time to package them up! Place each skeleton in a clear treat bag and twist tie the bottom around the lollipop stick.
- Next, download the free printable tag at the bottom of this post. **Please make sure you download the printable to your computer before you try to edit the text.

- Then, cut out the entire perimeter of the circles.
- Lastly, simply punch a hole in the top of the tag and tie it to the lollipop stick. Done! So easy and a really adorable gift!
