Stacked Pretzels Skeleton Treats

by Katy Stewart

This is an easy, no-mess snack recipe that your hungry Halloweeners will love! Pretzel stacking is a fun activity for kids to improve their motor skills, too!


• Large marshmallows

• Yogurt-covered pretzels

• Brownies (for your base)

• Black Wilton food writer (or any edible color marker)

• Chocolate Icing

• Gummy Worms (optional)


1. Generously add frosting to the top of your brownie.

2. Start stacking your pretzels one by one on top of the brownie. Do so by placing the first and then adding each one with a small dollop of your icing between pretzels. Take care to not use too much so your “dirt” doesn’t leak out between your pretzels!

3. Using your black food writer/edible marker, draw a spooky skeleton face on a marshmallow with a zig zag smile or stitch lines. Get creative!

4. Take one last dollop of icing and attach your marshmallow to the top of your pretzel pile.

5. Add gummy worms around the base of your skeleton for added fun!

Make one to share or make a handful for this year's Halloween shindig!
