My Attempt at Halloween Cuteness

You know you see all of these super cute Halloween ideas on Pinterest and you think "I could make that". Yeah, right. So I thought making Nutter Butter mummies would be no fail. How hard can it be to cover those cookies with almond bark?

Well, that was the easy part. I melted the almond bark, dipped the cookies and added the eyes after they had set a bit. Next, I popped them in the refrigerator while we ate supper.

Then I tried something I hadn't ever tried before. Melting almond bark in a ziplock baggie. So far, so good. But when it came to snipping off a corner and using it to pipe the "rags" on the mummy...yikes!! That bag was scalding hot! I tried holding it with a pot holder but that didn't work out the best. I finally got all of the almond bark squeezed out when I realized something. It was still liquidy. Duh, I could have let it cool a bit before trying to squeeze it. My "rag strips" would have looked way more like a mummy I'm sure.

Oh well, between the grandkids and hubby I'm sure there will be no mummies left by Halloween. Do I dare try another Pinterest craft? post signature
