Marshmallow Mummies

A few times a year, I get to play in the kitchen and make treats that my kids just love. This is a new treat this year inspired by a picture in a magazine that I saw at my friends house, thanks Jan! They are fun and easy to make, in fact, we even had our young women make them at our Harvest party. :)

What you need to make these:
  • bag of marshmallows
  • big round sprinkles
  • white chocolate
  • sucker sticks (I get mine from Jo-Ann's)
  • styrofoam
  • small bags to put them in after

1. Melt white chocolate. I use a sugar dish, and melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until it is done, stirring each time. I then place the sugar dish on a candle warmer to keep the chocolate warm.


2.Take Marshmallow, sucker stick, and dip end of stick into melted white chocolate, and push into marshmallow. Set on wax paper to let white chocolate harden.

 
3. Once you are done inserting all the sticks into the marshmallows, you will dip the entire marshmallow in white chocolate.

 
4. Once marshmallow is covered in chocolate, place 2 round sprinkles on the marshmallow to make the eyes. (You can also just put sprinkles all over the marshmallow as well, very cute!)

 
5. Place mummy into styrofoam to the chocolate can set.

 
6. Once chocolate has hardened, Dip a fork into the white chocolate and use that to drizzle white chocolate over the marshmallow to create the look of a mummy.


 
7. Set mummies back in the styrofoam to set. Once the chocolate has set again, place your mummies into a small bag and tie with a twist or ribbon. Aren't they cute! Now present them to your kids and enjoy their reaction, or for a fun family night, have them help make them!
