Learn how to make a sweet and salty crossbones topping for your hot chocolate! Perfect for Halloween or if you are feeling especially morbid.
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
For 2 servings...
2 oz. white chocolate (do not use chocolate chips because they do not melt properly)
4 pretzel sticks
8 mini marshmallows, plus additional as desired
2 cups of your favorite hot chocolate
Step 2: Prepare "Crossbones"
- First chop the white chocolate into slivers and place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 10 seconds, then stir. Continue to microwave white chocolate in 5 second bursts, stirring each time, until completely melted.
- Attach a mini marshmallow to each end of each pretzel stick. Dip in the white chocolate, using a spoon to help cover the whole surface, until completely coated. Place on a plate covered with a sheet of parchment paper or plastic wrap, and place the plate in the freezer to let the chocolate set for about 10 minutes.
Step 3: Prepare Hot Chocolate
While the white chocolate sets in the freezer, prepare 2 cups of your favorite hot chocolate. When the chocolate covered "bones" are set, top the hot chocolate with the additional mini marshmallows, remove the chocolate covered pretzel-marshmallow bones from the freezer and arrange them in a crossbones shape over each cup of hot chocolate.
