Y’all, how is it October already? I mean, how in the heck has 10 months flown by so quickly? It feels like just a couple days ago we were celebrating the new year and now it’s already October? But since it’s such a fun month filled with tasty Halloween treats and wickedly cool costumes, I guess I’ll just go with the flow and stuff my face with every last morsel of sugar I can find. While the kids are sleeping, of course.
The other day while the kiddos were at school, I whipped up a batch of these Halloween Mummy Treats. The only ingredients I used was a quality white chocolate, mini chocolate chip morsels and pretzel rods. They are super easy to make, but the hard part is waiting on the white chocolate to cool and harden.
Halloween Mummy Treats
- 16 pretzel rods
- 1 (12 oz) bag Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers
- 32 mini chocolate chips
- Lay a sheet of parchment paper down on a large, flat surface.
- In a bowl, melt white chocolate according to directions on the package. I like to melt mine at 50% power, at 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until it's fully melted.
- Dip the top portion of each pretzel rod into the white chocolate and lay on parchment paper to cool. Once all the pretzel rods are dipped, add two mini chocolate chips to each one. These will serve as the mummy's eyes.
- Add the remaining white chocolate to a plastic sandwich bag and snip off one corner with a pair of scissors. You may need to put it back in the microwave to melt some if it hardens while you're working on the dipping process. Carefully pipe the chocolate onto the dipped portion of the pretzels rods in a back and forth motion.
- Allow to cool and harden before serving.
Don’t those adorable little Halloween Mummy Treats look frightfully delicious? It’s actually a little scary how quick they disappeared. My kids know that they only get one treat a day, but somehow all but three are gone. I’ve either got some sneaky little kids, or a sneaky little husband. I’m putting my money on a sneaky little husband.
If your child’s school still allows homemade treats for Halloween, how much fun would these be on Halloween party day? My kids keep asking me to put one in their lunchboxes so they can show their friends, but since I care about their teachers, I save the sugar rush for after school hours.
The good thing about this Halloween treat is if the kids are home to help, it’s the perfect recipe for little hands. Nothing about this recipe is complicated and it could make for some perfect hands-on time in the kitchen for the children.
