This year I decided to try my hand at Mummy Cookies I’ve seen around the way.
You can find lots of tutorials on Pinterest .
These are SO easy. I used Nutter Butter cookies, white Wilton candy melts, and my new favoritest ( that’s a word!) thing ….candy eyes! Because who doesn’t need eyes made of sugar?!
College Boy loves all things mustached so when I saw candy mustaches next to the candy eyes ( cake decorating supplies Michaels, JoAnn’s, Target) I had to get those too. Behold Mustached Oreo Purple People Eaters. Originally I was going to do bats to go with the mummies but the power of the ‘stache won out.
Good thing too because the black candy melts I bought weren’t really black when melted, but rather dark purple. So I dipped the Oreos, applied the eyes and the mustaches and then covered with purple decorating sugar.
I spread the contents as shown on a layer of tissue then gathered up the edges to make little bundles. Tied with ribbon and then “ let there be tags”. Because each bundle must have a tag. It's a rule or something.
I love making tags. It’s a great way to use up the scraps from other projects.
And voila! Monster Mummy Treat Bundles because this Mummy loves her College Boy.
