"Boo"tiful Ghost & Yummy Mummy Cookies!!!

These "spooky" little cookie friends are super easy for a quick class treat, party favors, or just a halloween hello! In my case, they were made just for fun. I love Halloween! It is my favorite holiday. For the last 3 years we have hosted a halloween party for our family members. We look forward to this every year. We begin planning our parties the day after the last one. We have a lot of fun. Well, this years halloween party is going to be a Medeival theme. We will be eating Fried Chicken & Biscuits. We have assigned out everyone to either bring a Spooky Side Dish, or a Spooky Treat/Dessert. We always have some great dishes that are a fright to see!!! I will be sure to post some of the pictures and some recipes. On to my cute little cookies...

Ghost & Mummy Cookies

1 package Nutter Butter Sandwich Cookies
1 Package Oreo Sandwich Cookies
1 Block Vanilla Bark, White Chocolate Chips, or White Baking Chocolate
Mini Chocolate Chips

Ghost: Melt Chocolate according to package directions. Dip Nutter Butter cookies into chocolate leaving about 1/4 of the cookie showing. Lay flat on wax paper. (I didn't have wax paper on hand, so I sprayed my tin foil and it worked great). Place 2 mini chips for eyes.
Mummy: Melt Chocolate according to package directions. Lay Oreo cookies flat on wax paper. Drizzle chocolate back and forth over cookie to make mummy bandages. Remember, its good to see some of the cookie still. Place 2 chips for eyes.

***I used a block of Vanilla Bark for mine, and one block had enough chocolate to do a package each of the Nutter Butter and the Oreo cookies. If you do White Chocolate Chips you probably would need 2 bags. For the White baking chocolate, you probably would need 5 packages. I wouldn't do the baking chocolate. It is too expensive. A lot of grocery store bakeries package their own bark, especially now getting close to the holidays, so check with the bakery.

Happy Halloween!!!

Oh, I love something like this that is fast. I honestly don't feel like making something from scratch when I feel like the decor just ruins it anyway. SO great to have an option where I don't have to go to all of the work for nothing. And they're ADORABLE!

These are SO ADORABLE! What a fun Halloween project! I love holidays for the very reason of creating clever things like this :)
