Halloween calls for a sweet treat for both adults and kids alike. Make this gooey and ghoulish dessert to enjoy after dinner.

- Bag of white chocolate chips
- Chocolate cookie icing
- Melt the chocolate chips on the stove.
- Insert a pretzel stick into each marshmallow by sticking it into the center and pushing it all the way down.
- Dip the marshmallows into the chocolate.
- Make sure they are completely covered and use a spoon to even out the sides that may be dripping.
- Set the marshmallows aside to dry a little bit and then take a toothpick to run a “stem” down the sides of the marshmallow to make it look like a pumpkin.
- Use the chocolate cookie icing to color the “stem” of the pumpkin on top.
- Let it dry and serve!
