You aren’t even going to believe me when I show you how ridiculously easy these tasty mummy marshmallows are. You’ll need 4 things: Jet-Puffed Stacker Marshmallows (the are large, square, and kind of flat), Candy eyes, Almond bark or white candy melts, and paper straws. To get started push a paper straw into each marshmallow so they can be served on a stick. Then ready your almond bark. I kept this really simple. I didn’t even use a pastry bag. I melted my almond bark in the microwave and then put it in a sandwich baggie and snipped a small piece off of one of the corners.
Let’s take a minute to talk about almond bark. I don’t use white chocolate for things like this because I find that it doesn’t melt as smoothly and it has a tendency to get clumpy when I heat it. Almond bark is inexpensive and melts nice and smooth which is perfect for pipping on or coating something. You can find it the baking aisle of the grocery store. If you don’t want to use almond bark the next best thing is candy melts. I know some people might like candy melts more but I think almond bark coats things even better. Either way they both melt smoothly and go on easily.
Back to our mummy mallows. Snip off a corner of the sandwich baggie and begin piping the almond bark over the marshmallows. Go back and forth over the marshmallow, throwing in a diagonal line sometimes to give it the look of a messily wrapped mummy. When you are done with the almond bark press two edible eyes into the middle and then move on to the next marshmallow. Each one only takes a minute so this moves pretty fast. Let them dry for an hour or so until the chocolate is fully hardened.
That’s it! Now you have adorable Halloween treats that you can make into party favors or just put on the table as a fun dessert. Maybe even smoosh them between two graham crackers for a Halloween S’mores. I promise you the parents are going to love them as much as the kids!
