Mummy Halloween Treats for Kids
Mummy Rice Krispie Treats
These mummie rice krispie treats are so easy to make for Halloween. These mummy rice krispies are are made with a simple rice krispie recipe, then cut and drizzled with icing.
Placing the mummy rice krispies on sticks helps prevent candy covered fingers, an easy addition for a Halloween party food. Halloween treats on sticks keeps little fingers from getting sticky. If sent to a Halloween party at school I am sure the teacher will be thankful.
Mummy Halloween Treats Recipe
This recipe made 7 large Mummies, for a larger school group I would double the recipe.
Mummy Rice Krispie Treat Ingredients
1/4 cup butter
package of marshmallows (40 large)
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
6 Cups Rice Krispies
ghost shaped cookie cutter
1 cup white candy melts
7 wood popsicle sticks
How to Make Mummy Rice Krispie Treats
Butter a large pan or cookie sheet. Cover with parchment paper and butter again, set aside.
In large microwaveable bowl, microwave the butter on HIGH 30-60 seconds or until melted.
Add marshmallows, toss to coat.
Microwave on high in 30 second increments, until the marshmallows expand and are large and puffy (60 -90 seconds) .
Remove from microwave and stir until the marshmallows melt down. Add the vanilla.
Add the rice krispies and stir until coated.
Pour into the pan and press down so they are about 1/2 inch thick.
Let cool until solid. To speed up the process you can place them in the freezer for half an hour.
Using a mummy (I used a ghost) shaped cookie cutter cut out the mummies. If your cookie cutter isn’t thick enough, even when pressed hard, cut it out as best you can with the cookie cutter and then retrace the edges using a small knife.
Once the marshmallow mummies are cut, insert a stick into the bottom of each one. The sticks are easy to insert, push them until the end of the stick is in the middle of each mummy.
Melt the white candy melts using the directions on the package.
Using a spoon, or tipped bottle drizzle the candy melts over the mummy rice krispies. I don’t recommend a plastic bag with the corner snipped out as the melted candy is quite warm. Drip over the rice krispie shapes shapes to resemble a mummy.
Using black icing pipe on a simple face. I used the tip from a Wilton candy melt container and screwed it onto the end of purchased icing. So fast,easy and no mess at all. Alternatively pop the icing into a icing bag fit with a small plain decorating tip.
Pipe on very simple smiling faces. When making these simple treats I do my best, with the idea that this isn’t Halloween Spooktacular on TV. Children are very forgiving about the perfection of decorating, if they recognize them as little mummies that’s all that’s needed. As a bonus they will recognize them as marshmallow krispie treats and most kids LOVE them.
If taking to a party you can package them individually by sliding them into dollar store cellophane treat bags and then tying a ribbon around the stick to close them.
