How To Make Mummy Oreos

Cute and easy mummy Oreos are a fun and easy Halloween treat to make with your kids (or just for yourself). The hardest part is melting chocolate (and we’re going to do that in the microwave)!

How To Make Mummy Oreos

I definitely fall into the category of person who prefers a cute Halloween treat rather than a scary one, like these Nutter Butter ghosts, Jack Skellington cookies, or these little ghost mini cupcakes. Enter, these Oreo Mummys. They’re easy, they’re cute, and best of all delicious.

What we need to make Mummy Oreos:

  • Oreos-I’m totally team Double Stuf, but really since we’re dipping them in chocolate, whatever flavor Oreo floats your boat is fine. Halloween Oreos would also be an obvious choice. Not a fan of Oreos in any capacity? Honestly, any smallish round cookie would probably work fine. Choose something with a little bit of depth (like a sandwich cookie) and not too big but not too small.
  • Melting Chocolate-Candy Melts, Girardhelli melting wafers or white almond bark will all work fine. Just don’t use white chocolate chips. Sometimes I use shortening or coconut oil to thin out the candy melts. The candy melts and almond bark are occasionally too thick when melted to dip easily. When the chocolate is melted you want it to run fairly fluidly off your spoon. I don’t usually need any shortening with the Girardhelli melting wafers.
  • Candy Eyes-there are apparently many sizes and colors of candy eyes now. Choose whatever ones float your boat. I can usually find candy eyes now in most groceries stores (Wal-Mart, Target, Jewel, etc.) if you have trouble finding them or just don’t want to use them, feel free to use a couple of chocolate chips for eyes instead. (Note: ok to use chocolate chips for eyes, not ok to use chocolate chips for melting chocolate).
Dipping the Oreos

How to make chocolate dipped Mummy Oreos

  1. Melt candy melts according to package directions. (I like to use the microwave since it’s quick and easy).
  2. Plop Oreos in the melted white chocolate and place on wax (or parchment) paper.
  3. After dipping 5-6 Oreos, place candy eyes on top of the dipped cookies. You don’t want the chocolate to dry before you put the eyes on.
  4. Once all of the cookies are dipped and mostly dry, take remaining white chocolate and fill a piping bag or zip top bag. (If you don’t wait until they’re dry, the lines will sink into your chocolate).
  5. Snip the very tip off the piping bag/baggie and zig zag the white chocolate over the dipped cookies.
  6. Allow to dry and enjoy!

Why can’t I just use chocolate chips?

Candy melts and other melting chocolate does not have to be tempered. It has vegetable oil instead of cocoa butter and is designed to harden on it own. Using chocolate chips or regular chocolate instead will leave you with a soft, greasy finished product. If you’re looking for it in the store, melting chocolate is sometimes called compound chocolate.
