Despite the fact that there's a whole container of marshmallows still sitting on the counter from earlier this week, we are extremely tempted to make these marshmallow bones from Martha Stewart for Halloween. How great are these?
They actually look fairly easy to make. After making the marshmallow batter, you make the bones by piping a small figure-8, a straight line, and then another figure-8 all in one continuous motion. That sounds very do-able, even if you're new to piping.
In our experience, the main thing is just to work quickly before the marshmallow starts setting. Also, you can wet your fingers and smooth out any errant peaks or awkward bumps.
Judging from the comments section, it sounds like the actual recipe for these bones is not the best. Most commenters recommend using a different marshmallow recipe. So if you've been looking for an excuse to try out our Fluffy Vanilla Marshmallow recipe, here it is!
If you don't want to the hassle of making these ahead of time and waiting for the marshmallows to cure, Martha has another recipe for meringue bones that can be made in about an hour. This is what Amy from the blog Angry Chicken did, and her bones look great. It was this same post that led us to our marshmallow bone craving.
Whichever way you go, we think this is a delicious and fun idea for any Halloween party. Don't you?
