DIY White Chocolate Wishbone Recipe: Thanksgiving Treats For Kids

Growing up, I vividly remember fighting my cousins for the wishbone on Thanksgiving day. It just doesn’t happen anymore. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s a bit of a crazy thing to do if you actually stop and THINK about it.

Either way, the tradition stopped which means that a new one has to begin. This white chocolate version is the perfect alternative.
