Halloween is just around the corner which means it’s time to start thinking about fun little treats! Last year I whipped together these adorable bat truffles and death by chocolate cupcakes. This year it’s all about ghosts and mummies! First up are these simple mummy cookies. You won’t believe how quickly you can create a batch of these overly adorable and somewhat spooky desserts!
It really starts with these edible eyes. Whoever got the idea to create these things is high on my list of favorites. I tried to create the look with regular chocolate chips but it just wasn’t the same. Something about the mismatched shape of the pupil pulls in the crazy Halloween look. I may have an entire jar of eyes in our cupboard waiting to be turned into fun little creations. Not creepy at all.
Besides the eyes, your ingredients are fairly simple. You’ll need white candy melts, nutter butter cookies, and a small Ziploc bag. That’s it.
Start by dipping your peanut shaped cookie in your melted chocolate, drop two little eyes towards the top, and drizzle melted chocolate over the top with your Ziploc to finish off your mummy look.
Really, it’s that easy. I had a batch of 25 thrown together in under ten minutes. I can’t even begin to explain their super adorableness. They look like something you purchased from a bakery or pulled out of a box. The best part is you really cannot mess this up. The drizzles of chocolate can be straight, looped over one another, or just a jumbled mess. Real life mummies aren’t perfect, right?
So get into the kitchen and make these little guys for your next holiday shin dig!
- 1 bag white candy melts
- 1 bag Nutter Butter cookies
- edible eye candies
- Melt your chocolate according to the package.
- Dip your Nutter Butter cookies, one at a time, in the chocolate coating the entire cookie. Tap off extra and place onto wax paper. Place two eyes on the top half of the cookie. Continue with the remaining cookies.
- Add a bit of melted candy melts to a Ziploc. Snip the corner and drizzle over your cookies to finish the mummy look.
