Nutter Butter Ghosts & Mummies
Fun and delicious cookie treats for Halloween. BOO! These mummy and ghost cookies are easy to make, a perfect kitchen project with the kids!
- Nutter Butter peanut butter sandwich cookies
- White melting chocolate (or white chocolate chips)
- Candy eyeballs or mini chocolate chips (for eyes)
- Semi-sweet chocolate chips (for mouth - tips removed with knife)
- Black writing food gel (for eyes and mouth)
- Tweezers, optional
Melt white chocolate according to package directions. (Can be reheated slightly in microwave to soften as needed.)
Coat cookies in the melted chocolate by dipping entire cookie, the top two-thirds of the cookie, or just the front side of cookie (leaving the back uncoated) then placing them on waxed paper. If using chocolate chips for eyes and mouths, carefully put them in place. (It helps to wait a few minutes for the chocolate to cool a bit. A pair of tweezers also helps with placement.) If using food gel, wait until the white chocolate has set up a bit or it may run and smear. (I use a toothpick to help shape it.) For the mummy wrap, wait until the coated cookie has hardened.
When hardened, using a sharp paring knife, carefully trim away any excess chocolate around the cookies. Decorate the tops of cookies as desired from the ingredients listed above.
Eyes - mini chocolate chips, candy eyes, or a dot of black writing gel. (I used tweezers to place the mini chips and candy eyes).
Mummy wrap - I used a ziptop bag with tiny corner cut off to apply AFTER the first layer had hardened.
Mouths - upside down semi-sweet chocolate chip (pointy tips removed with knife) or black writing food gel (I used a toothpick to shape it).
Allow the cookies to harden completely before transferring to a serving dish. BOO!!!
