Sugar Cookie Bar Mummy Pops

Mmmm-mummy!


This is a last minute Halloween treat that I am making for my son's kindergarten "Fall" party (well remaking, 'cause these ones are going to get eaten at home, and I will make them again on Halloween...whatev.)
I signed up to make a sweet treat for his class (yayyy) and a healthy treat for my other son's class (ehhh).
Sweet treat...right up my alley, because I am addicted to sugar.
Really, like call up the detox and get me a bed.
Anyway, to feed my habit....provide a snack for my son's class, I came up with these last minute Sugar Cookie Bar Mummy Pops.


Here's the great thing about these...there is no rolling, cookie cutter, fancy piping bags, or anything fussy at all. I had about an hour and a half from the time this idea popped into my mind until I had to get my little guy to school.
So here is what you need (and I did take some shortcuts).
-1 batch of sugar cookie dough (I used Betty Crocker mix, which requires 1 egg & 1 stick butter)
-Powdered sugar, about 4-6 cups
-1 stick butter, softened
-vanilla, 1 tsp.
-milk, about 1/4 cup
-salt, 1/8 tsp.
-white candy melts (And a baggie for drizzling, optional)
-candy eyes, or any type of small candy (m&m's, sprinkles, chocolate chips)
-lollipop sticks, or paper straws (optional)
-square baking pan, 8X8
-2 8 inch wide strips of parchment

Next, here is a quick little tutorial collage.


 
For the frosting, you will need about 1/4 - 1/3 cup soft butter. Cream butter with about 1 tsp. vanilla and tiny pinch of salt. Add powdered sugar, starting with about 4 cups. Mix into butter, it should be dry and lumpy. Next, mix in milk about 1 tablespoon at a time until the frosting is the desired consistency. I like mine to have stiff peaks, so it will hold it's shape on the cookie. If you add too much milk, just add a little more sugar. No biggie.

So now, you should have your mummy pops, or mummy cookies if you decide to forget the stick.
Quick, easy, cute, yummy.  Missing anything? I think not.

    1. Michelle....thanks! I make a lot of treats for my kids, and these are one of my all time favorites. The best part is that because they are mummies they don't require much precision....the messier the better!
