Well…it’s a wrap!  As in we’re wrapping up the Halloween season today and also wrapping up cookies in white candy melts to make them look like mummies!  These cookies start with premade sugar cookie dough.  You could pretty much use any cookie base for these, but sugar cookie dough gives us a nice, blank slate.

After baking the sugar cookies, they’re decorated with eyeball sprinkles and sliced almonds. I had leftover candy bloodshot eyes from the Halloween Eyeball Hot Cocoa Bombs I recently made.  They give the cookies that perfect “undead” look.  The sliced almonds look like dingy, old looking teeth peeking out from underneath white candy melt “bandages.”

Once they’re done, these Halloween cookies make an impressive looking treat or dessert.  And they’re so simple to make, too!  Just bake, decorate, and devour enjoy!  They might look like creepy, monstrous mummies, but after one bite you’ll see that they’re seriously sweet and so delicious!

If you’re looking to serve your little ghouls and goblins one last Halloween treat, whip up a batch of these mummy sugar cookies.  If nut allergies are an issue, omit the almonds and give the cookies an extra layer of candy melt bandages instead.

Premade sugar cookie dough portions on parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Start the cookies by lining a couple baking sheets with parchment paper.  Divide the premade cookie dough between the pans and bake as directed.

While the cookies are still warm, carefully press the eyeball sprinkles and sliced almonds into the cookies.  Allow the cookies to cool completely.

Melt the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl in 30 minute intervals.  Once melted, allow the candy melts to cool to a warm temperature. Then, spoon the melts into a sandwich baggie and make a small cut in a corner of the bag.

Drizzle the candy melts over the cookies to create a “bandaged” look.  Make sure not to cover the eyes or teeth completely.

Allow the candy melts to set.  Then, serve or store in an airtight container at room temperature.
