Ingredients for Nutter Butter Mummy Cookies
- White chocolate chips – Use white chocolate chips as the drizzle to make the wrapped mummy look on each cookie.
- Googly eyes – Buy some edible candy eyes to use on your mummy nutter butters. If you can’t find them, grab a tube of black gel icing to draw eyes onto the completed cookies.
- Nutter butter cookies – For this recipe, you will need the regular sized classic nutter butter cookies. There are many different shapes and sizes of nutter butters, but the classic cookies are the perfect shape!
- White almond bark – White chocolate and almond bark are not the same thing. Make sure you are purchasing white almond bark or white melting chocolate to dip the nutter butter cookies in.
How to Make Nutter Butter Mummies
- Place chunks of almond bark into a microwave-safe dish and heat for 20 seconds. Mix with a silicone spatula or spoon and then repeat the process until all bark is melted.
- Once smooth and creamy, dip each nutter butter in the bark. Using tongs or a fork, press the cookies into the melted bark to coat.
- Then remove the cookies and place them onto parchment paper. Repeat this process until all cookies are dipped.
- Allow the chocolate covered cookies to cool and set for about 10 minutes.
- When the nutter butter mummies base cookies have set, melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe dish for 20 seconds and then mix. Repeat until the chips are fully melted.
- Spoon the melted chocolate into a piping bag or plastic zip top bag. Then cut one corner off of the bag.
- Pipe the chocolate in a random zigzag pattern over the cookies to create the look of a mummy.
- Complete the nutter butter mummies by adding two candy eyes. Allow to set and then enjoy!
How to Store Nutter Butter Mummies
Store leftover Nutter Butter mummy cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. They will stay fresh for 3-4 days. You can also refrigerate these cookies to extend their life a bit. Just keep in mind that the change in temperature may cause the cookies to sweat.
To keep cookies from sticking, place parchment paper in between the layers of chocolate covered cookies!
Can I melt chocolate on the stove top?
If you prefer not to melt chocolate in the microwave, you can use the stove top double boiler method instead! Place a bit of water in a medium sized saucepan and bring it to a simmer.
Then you’ll place a glass or ceramic bowl over the saucepan with the almond bark or chocolate in it. Continuously stir the chocolate until smooth and creamy, then remove from the heat.
Just make sure you don’t get it too hot or the chocolate will seize!
- When you dip the cookies in almond bark, try to coat only one flat side and the edges of the cookies. This will keep the bottom of the cookie from smushing excess almond bark out the sides once laid down to dry.
- Line a wire cooling rack with parchment paper to place the cookie on. It will help them cool and dry more quickly.
- Pipe the white chocolate in a very random pattern to keep the cookies from looking too similar to one another.
Make mummy nutter butters this Halloween and watch everyone rave over how adorable, and tasty, they are! I won’t tell them how super simple they are to make.
