Calling all the monsters

We love to make monsters at Halloween. Some of our favs are Monster Rice Krispie Treats and Monster Bark.

Today’s recipe stars one of my favorite Halloween monsters – mummies!! We made these Mummy Cookies and they were super easy and super tasty! They’d be great for Halloween parties.

They are perfect for placing in party favor bags and sharing. They are so simple that the kids can even pitch in and enjoy the process!

CANDY COATING. Begin by melting candy coating as directed on package.

COOKIE. Place cookie in melted candy using a fork and making sure all sides are coated. Set on waxed paper and repeat for all cookies.

SET. Let candy coating set (in the fridge for half hour) or on the counter for at least 1 hour.

DECORATE. Melt more candy coating and place in a Ziploc bag. Snip edge and drizzle over cookies. Add mini M&Ms as eyes. Let set. ENJOY!

Variations:

  • Look for cookies that have an oblong oval shape such as Milano cookies, Keebler EL fudge cookies, Nabisco Nutter Butter Cookie
  • Instead of using mini brown M&M’s you can use candy eyeballs or even red hot candies.
  • Instead of white candy coating you can also use white chocolate chips and add a bit of coconut oil to help get the chocolate smooth.

Tips for melting candy coating

The key to melt candy wafers is to melt them at low heat and slowly. 

  • Microwave: This is a very quick way to heat the chocolate. I would recommend only heating enough chips to coat a few cookies at a time. Set the microwave to 50% power and heat the candy wafers in 30 second increments. Stir after every 30 seconds. Repeat until smooth.
  • Stovetop: Place the candy in a small saucepan and heat over medium low heat until smooth. Stirring constantly. 
  • Double boiler: This is a great way to heat a larger batch of coating because the coating can stay hot without fear of it being burned. If you do not have a double boiler then you can make one using a saucepan and a metal bowl. Add 2 inches of water to the saucepan, place the metal bowl on top of the saucepan, add the candy coating to the bowl and bring the water to a boil. Once boiling you can turn down the heat. Stir until the coating is smooth.

Storing Info

STORE cookies in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks (once the coating has hardened).

To FREEZE these cookies, let them solidify before you place them in an airtight bag in the freezer for up to 4 months. Let them thaw to room temperature before eating.

    So I love the Keebler elf cookies and they work really well to make these. I also use the doubler broiler method you suggest in the post. It keeps the candy perfectly melted. Without worry it will burn or seize. Thanks for the idea.
