Halloween party and Yummy Mummies
The sweet spread consisted of caramel apples, cake pops, strawberries and chocolate dipped pretzels, or what we called Yummy Mummies!
inspired by Inside Nana Breads Head
25 Salted Pretzel Rods
1 bag of White Candy Melts
Melt candy melts in a tall microwavable mug in 30 second intervals at half power until melted. While the candy is melting set out a couple cookie sheets lined with wax paper or a silpat. Set up your dipping station, Pretzels, melted candy, and cookie sheets. Dip one pretzel at a time into mug until it reaches the bottom or the desired height on the pretzel (be sure to leave room for holding them), and gently lay onto cookie sheet. After dipping all of the pretzels fill a plastic bag with one corner snipped or decorating bag with the remaining melted candy and drizzle over the pretzels to create mummy wraps. Let set for 10 minutes and then decorate with eyes and mouths using black frosting (the spray canned kind is fine). Let set a little while longer and Enjoy!!
Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
