  • On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, sprayed foil or a Silpat mat, pour your mixture. Using your hands, press into a bone shape or any other “spooky” shape you desire (if making for Halloween)! You could also use a themed cake pan.⁠
  • Coat with a thick layer of BBQ sauce.⁠
  • Bake for 1 hr 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. You can start checking around the 1 hr mark.⁠
  • Let sit for 10-15 minutes before cutting and serving.⁠
