One tube of Pillsbury garlic breadsticks will make 16 bones. Open the tube and unroll the dough. Is there anyone who actually inserts a spoon in the seam, like it says on the instructions?

Cut the dough in half, unless you’re making life sized femur bones. Separate each of the bread sticks and then make a slit in each end. Take the slits and roll into balls.

Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with coarse salt, then bake at 350° for about 12 minutes. I found them to be perfectly garlicky, but if you are really scared of vampires crave more, sprinkle with garlic powder before baking.

There you have it! It doesn’t get any easier than this. They’re prefect for just munching as you hand out candy or as a yummy dipper, with some bloody marinara sauce, at your Halloween party.
