A few days ago I found a recipe for Funny Bones on Epicurious which I want to make for Halloween, but the recipe uses pretzel sticks.
Now, I think I know what these are, a kind of salty chip thingy right?, but I don't want to mix salty with sweet, the other ingridients are marshmallows and white chocolate. I have been racking my brain but cannot come up with an alternative. Can someone help me?

BTW, have you seen these Aren't they great? I will definitely be making those too. icon_biggrin.gif

actually salt and sweet work well together. Pretzels are more like a cracker then a chip, but not really a cracker either. i suppose you could make some cookie sticks, using a plain sugar cookie dough that would work for what you are wanting to do.

I actually like sticking prezels in marshmallows and dipping the marshmallows in to chocolate. It makes an edible stick for the marshmallows and is a great combination. There is a candy bar that has chocolate, pretzel and marshmallows in it along with caramel and is good.

I wouldn't try to find a subsitute for the pretzel myself.

I absolutley LOOOOOOOOOOOVE salty sweet together. It's actually very nice on the palette. A pretzel is more like a cracker then a chil.Think of a piece of dough that has been baked hard, covered in course salt.
