Halloween is next week, and everyone needs to make a special treat to celebrate “All Hallows’ Eve.” Halloween Mummy Cookie Balls are a super quick and easy treat for all your little monsters.
The folks at Baker’s have these new cookie ball kits that are the bomb!! Cookie Ball Kits by BAKER’S Premium Chocolate create deliciously indulgent cookie balls in just 10 minutes without ever turning your oven on!
Each kit includes pre-measured cookie crumbs, sprinkles and a bar of BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate. There are several to chose from, and each has a unique taste and style. I have made two of the flavors and both are terrific!
Simply add cream cheese to cookie crumbs, roll into bite-sized balls, dip in melted chocolate. Each kit also comes with sprinkles, but I saved those for another day.
I chose the white chocolate kit because……well Mummys are white. I did need to have extra melted white chocolate for the drizzle as the kit has just enough to coat the cookie balls. Plus of course googly eyes, no Mummy is complete without them!
Mummy’s are easy to decorate since there is no rhyme or reason to their raggedy outfits.
Make the cookie balls according to the package directions. Melt extra white chocolate to make the Mummy rags. No fancy equipment is needed, just a plastic bag with a corner snipped off.
Drizzle the coated cookie balls with the melted chocolate and place the googly eyes on top and you have Halloween Mummy Cookie Balls!
Again with the googly eyes. Dark rich chocolate cupcakes decorated to look like a bubbling cauldron.
Not nearly as intimidating as they look to make, green tinted frosting is decorated with edible candies. Red striped birthdays candles for witch legs with witches shoes attached with a dab of frosting.
These are by far my favorite Halloween treat…..but I do love cake!!!!
This recipe…..once I got the dipping part right was super easy. Let me correct that….once I got the candy coating right. See… I tried to add food coloring to white melting chocolate, take my word for it and save yourself some$$$ ( I had to throw away $5 of chocolate… it seized up when the color was added). Buy colored melts. They come in almost any color and work like a dream.
Bugles are a blast from the past for me, we used to put them on our fingers and pretend to have witches fingers…..I seem to remember the Bugles being larger. I guess maybe it just me….oh yeah….I’m larger….lol
Witches Fingers are a sweet-salty treat sure to satisfy any ghost or goblin. Place them in a plastic cauldron for a cute presentation.
Try any of these treats for Halloween party or as treats for your trick or treaters!!
I have a recipe for witches delight. It’s enough to make you want to take flight……a poem by Christy Ann Martine, says it all about Witches Fingers. Bugles dipped in candy coating. So about Bugles…. when I was a kid, these were a great salty snack and fun finger food…..literally. We would put a Bugle on each finger and pretend we were witches, then snap them off one by one, and eat them. I tried to put one on my finger, but apparently they only come in kid size. Anyone who grew up in the mid 60’s will have a similar story.Continue reading “Witches Fingers”
