Cookie Dough Bones for Halloween

Hey friends,

Halloween is coming up this week and just like every year I’m in two minds. On the one hand, being rational, I think the whole deal is very overrated and it’s nothing to be excited about. But on the other hand I kinda like it. It’s just one of those occasions when you can be crazy and creative and overall just different than usual. And if I had to choose between Halloween or German Carnival, Halloween would definitely win!

The big problem right now: There is so sooo much to do at the moment that I don’t even have time for such things. In theory and if I’m being a rational thinking adult. In reality, I had a super cute – uhhhhm scary – recipe idea, that I simply needed to make. There was no other way. But see for yourself…

Cookie Dough Bones

Cookie Dough Bones

Yield: 10
Prep Time: 45 minutes
Additional Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 45 minutes

So sweet, so scary - they will be the star of every Halloween party!


  • 75 g butter
  • 50 g sugar
  • 25 g brown sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • 35 ml milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 125 g flour
  • 40 g mini chocolate chips
  • pretzel sticks
  • 300 g white chocolate
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil


  1. Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, milk, salt and flour to make the cookie dough, then fold in the chocolate.
  2. Take a piece of cookie dough, flatten it and wrap it around a pretzel stick.
  3. Make 4 little balls of dough and attach 2 at each end. Repeat the process until all the cookie dough is used up, then put everything in the fridge for half an hour to set.
  4. In the meantime, roughly chop the white chocolate and melt together with the coconut oil.
  5. Now remove the bones from the refrigerator and even out any remaining bumps. Use a fork to dip them into the melted chocolate and cover them evenly. Drain excess chocolate and place on a smooth surface.
  6. Let it set in the fridge for a further 30 minutes, then if necessary, shave off small chocolate drips with a knife or vegetable peeler and serve!

How do you ‘celebrate’ Halloween? Do you dress up & if yes, what are you going to be?
