Servings Prep Time
20mummy marshmallows 15minutes
Ingredients
  • 6oz bright white candy melts(half of one 12 oz package)
  • 10large marshmallows
  • 40small candy eyes
Instructions
  1. Set up a cooling rack over parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  2. Cut each marshmallow in half across the middle to create two circular disks. Set aside.
  3. Place the candy melts in a small microwaveable bowl. Heat as per package directions until completely melted. Do this after the marshmallows are prepped as the candy melts will start to harden.
  4. Place a marshmallow half on a fork. Using a spoon, pour some of the candy melts over the marshmallow while holding it over the candy melt bowl. Tap the fork against the edge of the bowl to remove the excess candy melt.
  5. Then load the spoon halfway with some additional melted white candy. Quickly swipe the spoon back and forth over the marshmallow in a zigzag pattern, creating the mummy wraps. Do not tap the marshmallow on the bowl at this point as it will diminish the mummy wraps.
  6. Empty the spoon of extra candy melt and use the spoon to push the marshmallow off of the fork and onto the cooling rack. Any excess candy will drip off onto the parchment. Alternatively, you can place the marshmallows directly on the parchment paper. Have done this a few times, I prefer directly on parchment paper because even with nonstick spray they can stick to the cooling rack. Just be sure to tap off a lot of the excess candy before making the wraps so that you do not have a pool around the marshmallows.
  7. Soon after, place two of the candy eyes on the mummy. If you wait too long, the candy will have hardened and the eyes will not stick, so do not wait until the end to complete this step. (I found applying eyes every four marshmallows worked well).
  8. Let the marshmallows sit until the candy has hardened, approximately 5-10 minutes.
Recipe Notes

The candy eyes are the smallest of three versions that I found.  There was no size listed on the package of the eye itself but each eye is 5/16 of an inch in diameter.  Click here for a link to this product.

I use bright white candy melts as regular white can look a little yellow or beige.  You can find them at your local craft and baking stores.
