These Garlic Breadstick Bones Are a Morbidly Delicious Halloween Snack

Updated

With Halloween less than a week away, it’s time to get your party snack game plan in action. While candy and caramel apples are nice, all those sweets have us craving something savory.

That’s where these breadsticks come in. Inspired by a technique that Sarah Michelle Gellar taught us with her pretzel bones, we adapted it using store-bought pizza dough, which means these come together super quick. Serve with a splatter of marinara sauce to make ’em extra spooky.

Kind of morbid? Yes. Delicious? Also yes. And if you’re hungry for more food hacks, we’ve got you covered.
