One last, last minute super easy Halloween treat for the year!
I’m sure you’ve seen these fun little mummy pops around the web. I think they originally stared at How Does She? This is my own take on it!
White Almond Bark
1 Package Oreos
Royal Icing Eyeballs (see recipe below)
I made my own eyes out of royal icing and since I made the whole batch of royal icing for just a few eyeballs I had a ton of icing and made some little spiders (I know, spiders have eight legs, not six, but it looked better this way . . . )
I used Almond Bark from Walmart, it had kind of a off white tint to it, I wondered if you used chocolate melts if it would have been a truer white. Does anyone know? I used one pack of Oreos and one package of bark, but could used a little more bark, I had about five Oreos left over.
Add eyeballs before chocolate hardens. Let chocolate set up, again place in fridge to speed up the process.
Add royal icing spiders, let chocolate set up well.
Place a piece of styrofoam in bucket stick sticks into. Pretend like styrofoam got covered up with little accoardian paper filler things and there there it is wrapped in cellophane, tied with a cute bow and a tag with a cute little mummy that says, “Some MUMMY loves you!”
Royal Icing (recipes below)
Black Food Coloring (or cocoa powder)
Circular cake decorating frosting tip or Ziploc Freezer Bag
Add a small amount of black for the pupil (you can still do this while the white is wet):
ROYAL ICING (Egg White Recipe)
3 egg whites, room temperature
1 lb. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
Combine ingredients, beat at high speed for 7-10 minutes.
ROYAL ICING (Meringue Powder recipe)
3 tbsp. meringue powder (you can get this in the wedding/cake supplies at Wal-Mart)
1 lb. confectioners' sugar
6 tbsp. warm water (in humidity use less water)
Beat all ingredients until icing forms peaks at low speed. Yield approximately 3 cups.
Notes: Please keep icing covered with a damp cloth or paper towel while not in use, otherwise it will harden. To attach eyeballs to food, moisten the back of the eyeball with a little water and it will stick to most anything. (Gourmet Mom on the Go)
This is my counter full of eyeballs. I had a lot so I thought it would be fun to make some spiders for the mummies too. I did a small circle for the head a larger one for the body and little lines for the legs. I now have enough eyeballs to last us a lifetime!
