To make a skeleton head, you'll need two regular marshmallows. With scissors, cut one marshmallow widthwise to expose stickiness and make pieces for the head and jaw. Poke holes with a toothpick to make sticky spots for eyes, teeth, and nose. Poke white candy-coated licorice pastels into jaw for teeth, and press in black licorice drops for eyes. Snip a piece of black licorice twist into a small triangle for the nose, and press into place. Poke a few times with the toothpick into marshmallows to make a large hole for a candy stick. Push candy stick into hole, through jaw, and into skull. Wrap in cellophane bag if desired.

You will need a red sour belt, two yellow gumdrops, black and red shoestring licorice, and a white candy cake decoration for the eyeball. Cut sour belt into a tongue. Trim gumdrops and stick them together for head and body. Snip black licorice for arms, legs, and pupil and red licorice for mouth. Poke holes for eyeball, arms, and legs, and scrape away sugar for mouth and tongue; place those pieces. Use tiny dabs of "glue" from a gumdrop to secure pupil to eyeball.
