Mummy Cookies

In keeping with the Halloween spirit, here is a fairly easy treat to make.  Chocolate cookies are shaped into a mummy form and then coated with white chocolate.  Before it sets, you use a toothpick to mark the bandages.  To speed up the process, put them into the fridge to harden.  Be creative, there are no wrong mummies. These were a big hit with my kids!

Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter

  • 2 squares unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1⅓ cups AP flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 package white chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp shortening (it has to be shortening if you want them white)
Instructions
  1. Place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave.
  2. Cream butter and sugar.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla.
  4. Add the cooled chocolate.
  5. Combine the remaining dry ingredients in a small bowl and add to the chocolate mixture until well incorporated.
  6. Form little balls for the mummies' heads and longer thicker rectangles for the bodies.
  7. It's about 1 tsp for the head and 1 Tbsp for the bodies.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until done.
  9. Let cool on a wire rack until completely cold.
  10. Melt the white chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave...1 minute at a time, stirring well after each minute.
  11. Place a cookie on a table knife and spoon the chocolate over the cookie, letting it drip off the sides.
  12. If the chocolate isn't runny enough, add more shortening and reheat as needed.
  13. Let it cool slightly, so it's just barely pliable and make the bandage markings with a toothpick.
