Halloween Bone Bread Sticks

I have seen this "recipe" (you can hardly call it that because it's so easy!) everywhere on the blogs lately. It is so fun. I got it out of the Family Fun Magazine and made them for my kids packed lunches on Halloween along with a container of "blood"(marinara sauce :)), a severed finger (cheese stick shaped like a finger with a food marker painted finger nail), ghost marshmallows, and green jello with candy eyes. For the bread sticks I used Pillsbury bread sticks dough because it was easiest, but you could also use your favorite homemade bread stick dough and follow the same directions.

Halloween Bone Bread Sticks

1 tube Pillsbury Bread Sticks dough
garlic bread seasoning,optional (I use Johnny's Garlic Bread seasoning)

Separate the dough into individual bread sticks. Working with one piece at a time, stretch the dough to lengthen it a bit and then use scissors or a knife to cut a 1 1/2 inch slit int he center of each end. Shape the resulting 4 flaps of dough into knobs that look like the ends of a bone. Place the dough bones on an ungreased cookie sheet, spacing them a few inches apart, and sprinkle on a little garlic bread seasoning. Bake at 375 for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce.
