How To Make Mummy Cupcakes

As the fall season approaches and we all start to look forward to Halloween, there’s nothing quite as exciting as creating Halloween-inspired treats to get the kids even more excited. If you’re not sure what to prepare but know that you want to make something impressive, these Mummy Cupcakes are a great choice.

What You’ll Need to Make the Mummy Cupcakes

Before you get started, you’ll need a handful of ingredients to prepare these tasty cupcakes, such as:

  • Pre-Baked Cupcakes – Bake your cupcakes ahead of time. You can use a homemade recipe or a boxed cake mix, whichever is easier and best for you.
  • Buttercream Icing – Prepare buttercream icing from scratch or buy it at the store. You can usually find some in the bakery department of the grocery store.
  • Nutter Butter Cookies – Don’t forget the cookies. You’ll need six cupcakes and six of the regular-sized Nutter Butters!
  • White Almond Bark – If you don’t have almond bark, you can always use some white candy melts, which will work just as well.
  • Candy Eyes – Candy Eyes come in different sizes. Find ones that will fit the Nutter Butter. You can also use an edible marker and draw the eyes.

Do I have to use Nutter Butters?

Nutter Butters work best because of their shape. Since they’re shaped like a peanut, they look more like a mummy after you’ve dipped them in the almond bark.

How long will the cookies need to sit in the fridge?

After you’ve dipped the cookies in the melted almond bark, place them in the fridge for roughly five minutes. You want to give them just enough time to cool down. You won’t need to leave them in there any longer than that.

What types of cupcakes should I make for this recipe?

You can use any flavor for your cupcakes, such as chocolate or vanilla. Use what you like, but make sure the cake will taste good with the peanut butter flavor from the Nutter Butters.

Where can I find candy eye sprinkles to give the mummy’s eyes?

You should be able to find the candy eyes in most grocery stores. If not, you can order them online on Amazon.

Mummy Cupcakes Tips

  1. Work quickly with your melted almond bark and microwave it in 30-second intervals to ensure that it’s nice and smooth for dipping. You don’t want to wait too long because then it will start to harden all over again.
  1. If you’re using candy melts, you may want to add a small amount of coconut oil into the melted mixture to make it smoother and much easier to work with.
  1. When adding the bandages to the mummy, if you don’t have a piping bag, use a Ziploc bag. You can pour the remaining melted almond bark into the bag, seal it shut, and then snip the tip off the bag, using it to pipe the fake bandages on the cookies.

Mummy Cupcakes are a huge hit during Halloween. Be prepared to put a smile on your children’s faces when preparing these fun, flavorful goodies.
