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.
