Mummies On A Stick

With Halloween quickly approaching, I needed a cute and easy treat to give to all of my coworkers. I headed over to a local baking supply store and they had these adorable "mummies on a stick" right in the window and I knew instantly that was what I was going to make.

Here's what you're going to need to make this treat:

-1 pound bag of white melting chocolate
-Lollipop sticks (the longer ones)
-Plastic squeeze bottle
-Edible eyes (I got these at the local baking supply store but you might be able to find these at Michael's Crafts. If you can't find these exact eyes you can always improvise with chocolate chips!)
-Large plastic goodie bags

1. First off, you're going to put your lollipop sticks all the way up into your Twinkies but make sure not to push it through the top. Put your twinkies in the freezer for about 15 minutes with the sticks already in them to make sure that they're nice and firm for easy assembling (I learned this the hard way and didn't freeze them for my first attempt at this treat. This is an important step so don't forget it!)

2. After letting your twinkies harden, bring them out of the freezer and begin melting your chocolate (reserve about a quarter of your chips to the side for drizzling). When your chocolate is all melted, bring your twinkies above your bowl of melted chocolate and begin to cover the entire twinkie using a spoon (I've found this way to be a lot easier then dunking the twinkie into the actual bowl of chocolate.. But you can do it which ever way you'd like!)

3. Once done dipping all of your twinkies and setting them on a wax piece of paper to dry, begin to melt your reserved chocolate and put it in your squeeze bottle. You're then going to drizzle chocolate in a horizantal motion over your previously dipped twinkies, making sure to place your eyes on before your chocolate dries.

4. Place your mummies in the fridge for about 30 minutes to harden and you're all set.

I wrapped my mummies in large clear goodie bags and tied them up with a piece of twine. This was an easy Halloween gift and everyone loved them!

One large pound bag of chocolate makes about 7-8 mummies.
