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.
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.
