Servings 6 people


  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 tbs butter
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 7-10 marshmallows
  • Your favorite fruit and toppings Blueberries make great eyes!


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Scald the milk by heating on medium and removing it from the stove when small bubbles start to form around the edge.
  • Pour milk into mixing bowl and add butter, allowing the butter to melt. Set aside to let cool until it is comfortable to touch.
  • Mix flour, salt, and nutmeg in a separate bowl and set aside.
  • Once the butter and milk have cooled, add the yeast. Yeast doesn't respond well to high temperatures, and adding it too soon may prevent the dough from rising.
  • Add sugar, water, and eggs, to the liquids bowl, then lightly mix to evenly distribute.
  • While continuing to stir, add the flour mix slowly, about a cup at a time. The dough will end up sticky, but not soupy. If it's too runny, add extra flour, about a tablespoon at a time.
  • Prepare a counter top and rolling pin by lightly coating in flour.
  • Separate the dough into two balls, one big and one small.
  • Roll out each one into a circle. Then using a little water or milk, lightly wet the dough to attach them and form a skull shape. Use your hands or the rolling pin to make the inside of the skull flatter than the edges.
  • To help prevent the middle from rising too much, perforate the dough with a fork.
  • Bake for about 10-15 minutes, until dough has lightly browned.
  • Set dough aside and let cool.
  • Prepare your toppings. We used sprinkles, sliced strawberries, marshmallows, and skeleton cereal. Try it with your favorite fresh fruit combinations!
