    You can find candy melts at Michaels, Wal-Mart, or here. White chocolate works, too.

    2. Microwave the candy melts in 30-second bursts. Stir until they're smooth and creamy.

    You can just pop the bowl back in the microwave if the candy melts start to harden while you work.

    3. Dip the cookie halfway in the candy melts, then smooth it out with a fork.

    Don't worry about making it too perfect, you just want to get an even covering.

    4. Dip the fork back in the candy melts and then drizzle horizontally to make stripes that look like bandages.

    5. Then, place two candy eyeballs to give the mummy some personality. Name him Fred.

    6. Let the mummies harden on a baking sheet that's lined with wax or parchment paper.

    Recipe by Lindsay Hunt


    2 cups white chocolate candy melts or white chocolate

    16 Nutter Butters or Milano cookies

    Put the candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts until melted. Stir until smooth.

    Dip the cookies halfway into the melted candy. Let the excess drip off, then use a fork to smooth out the coating.Dip the fork tines in the candy melts and drizzle over the cookies, to look like mummy wrapping. Press on two candy eyes and then place on a baking sheet that is lined with wax paper or parchment paper. Repeat with remaining cookies. Let sit until set, about 30 minutes.
