Easy Mummy Brownies perfect for Halloween Parties! So easy to make with either homemade brownies or boxed brownies.
There is still more mummy treats to come this week! Though I need to pick up more candy eyes! I have gone through 2 packages of candy eyes turning everything into mummies this week.
This challenge started when my Husband said he thought I would run out of ideas for making mummy Halloween treats...
He should know after 17+ years together that I am not one to back down from a challenge. Thus Mummy Week started and I am still on a roll.
Wait until you see what he had for lunch today. Let's just say he was not expecting me to mummify it. LOL...Mummy Quesadillas!
Are you ready for Halloween? I feel like it is going to be big this year! Especially since we were not really celebrating much the past few years.
We are still not sure what we are doing for Halloween.
I love that this treat is perfect for busy working mom that need a quick and easy spooky treat for their kids. Who am I kidding this spooky treat is great for everyone!
This is a quick overview of the simple ingredients that you'll need to make Mummy Brownies spooky treats! Specific measurements and step-by-step instructions are included in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
White Candy Melts/White Chocolate
9x13 casserole baking dish – for thicker brownies you can use a smaller 8x8 baking dish/pan.
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter while mixing the brownie batter.
Wooden Spoon - to stir the melted chocolate.
Spoon/ Rubber spatula
Parchment Paper - I love that I can use parchment paper to make clean-up a breeze.
Heat resistant potholders - A couple of years ago we had a fire scare when we didn't realize we had turned a burner on and a cloth potholder caught fire. Thankfully we walked by the kitchen and saw the smoke and were able to get it out ourselves. Since then we have only used these heat-resistant potholders.
Baking Sheets - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides. You don't have to worry; you will move the brownies and have them slide right off.
How to make Brownie Mummies
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here's a quick version.
Step 1 - Bake brownies of choice. Allow to cool.
Cut brownies into even squares/rectangles. We normally cut rectangles so there is more space to add mummy bandages along the brownie.
Spread brownies on a parchment lined baking sheet on a flat surface.
Step 2 - Melt almond bark/white chocolate bark in the microwave in 30 second intervals in microwave-safe bowl, make sure to stir after every interval.
Create mummy bandages with melted chocolate. We use a spoon and swing it back and forth in a zigzag motion to create a random pattern.
Step 3 - Add candy eyeballs and allow to set.
Tips for the best Mummy Brownies
Make sure the brownies are completely cooled before adding the white chocolate/almond bark bandages. This will help keep nice lines and not have the chocolate melt all over the mummy brownies.
You can add chocolate frosting to the brownies before adding the mummy bandages if you want them frosted.
Nutritional information including calories, carbohydrates, sodium, calcium, vitamin c, potassium, fiber, cholesterol, protein, and more will vary depending on the type of brownies used.
You can use a small tip icing tip and a piping bag/plastic bag if you want to pipe matching lines on all of your spooky treats.
For a different flavor you can melt cream cheese frosting and use it to create the mummy bandages.
You can use your favorite brownie recipe for this easy Halloween sweet treat.
