Mummy cookies

As strange as it might sound, Pepperidge Farms Milano® cookies dipped in white chocolate has always been one of my favorite treats; you’ve got to try them–they’re delicious! So after making this Mummy Bark I had the idea to add a few more decorations to that treat and turn the cookies into mummies.

It’s such a festive, fun and simple treat that is also ridiculously tasty. I make Mummy Cookies every Halloween and without fail, they’re always the first treat gone.

Only four ingredients!

  • Milano cookies: Pick your favorite flavor; I’m partial to the double dark chocolate ones (especially when paired with the white chocolate coating). And if you are super ambitious or don’t have Milano cookies available, you could make your own!
  • White chocolate chips: Use high-quality white chocolate chips (more on this below) or use a white chocolate baking bar.
  • Vegetable oil: Oil helps to thin the white chocolate so it adheres nice and smoothly to Mummy Cookies. A little goes a long way! Coconut oil, canola oil or vegetable shortening could also be used.
  • Black pearl sprinkles: These sprinkles can be tricky to find at a mainstream grocery store, but they are readily available at craft/hobby stores, baking/decorating specialty stores, or online! I typically get mine online.

How to make Mummy Cookies

The photo collage below this text breaks down the process of making Mummy Cookies.

  • Melt the white chocolate. I use vegetable oil to thin the chocolate and help it to adhere to the cookies better. (More tips on melting white chocolate below.) While melting the chocolate, put the Milano cookies in the freezer.
  • Decorate. Working quickly (white chocolate hardens fast!), hold the Milano cookies over the white chocolate and spoon the chocolate over the top 2/3 of the cookie. Place chocolate-coated cookies back onto the baking sheet..
  • Drizzle. Once all the cookies are coated in white chocolate, use the remaining chocolate to drizzle mummy “bandages” over the cookies.
  • Add “eye” sprinkles. Before the chocolate has a chance to harden, press two pearl sprinkles into the cookie to create mummy eyes.
  • Let the cookies harden at room temperature and then enjoy! I usually refrigerate the cookies– they are so good straight out of the fridge!

White chocolate melting tips

  • Use high-quality white chocolate chips for a better melt and a richer taste. My favorite is Ghirardelli® or Guittard® (not sponsored).
  • Microwave chocolate chips in sturdy, microwavesafe (glass) bowls instead of using plastic or melamine. 
  • To avoid burned chocolate chips, microwave the chips for 30 seconds at a time, and stir for at least 20-25 seconds in between each microwave burst. Remember, the chocolate is still melting even after it has been removed from the microwave. 
  • White chocolate hardens very quickly, so work fast when pressing the edible eyes into the cookies. 
  • If the chocolate starts to harden while you are coating the cookies, microwave it for another 5-10 seconds. If the chocolate is too thick and not going on smoothly, add a little bit more vegetable oil.

QUICK TIP

Did you know that white chocolate–technically speaking–isn’t actually chocolate? Chocolate is graded and measured by the amount of cocoa solids it contains (that’s what gives chocolate its brown color). White chocolate contains plenty of cocoa butter, but no cocoa solids, so legally, it’s not actual chocolate. We still love this kind of sweet stuff, though, regardless of its classification!

Ingredients

  • 1 package (7.5 oz; 213g) Double Chocolate Milano cookies
  • 1 cup (155g) white chocolate chips (See Note 1)
  • 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 32 black pearl sprinkles

Instructions

  • PREP: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove the cookies from the package and place in an even layer on the lined sheet pan. Place in the freezer while melting the chocolate.
  • MELT WHITE CHOCOLATE: In a large microwave-safe bowl, add the white chocolate chips and vegetable oil. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir for 15-20 seconds, and microwave for another 25 seconds. Stir until melted or return to the microwave for 10-15 more seconds.
  • COAT COOKIES IN WHITE CHOCOLATE: (Work quickly; white chocolate hardens fast!) Holding the cookie in one hand and a spoon in the other hand, spoon the melted chocolate over the top 2/3 of the cookies. We spoon chocolate over the cookie instead of dipping it. (Dipping the cookies causes the chocolate from the center of the Milano to melt into the white chocolate, creating an off-colored chocolate.) Once the chocolate has been spooned over the cookie, tap the cookie on the edge of the bowl a few times; then scrape the bottom of the cookie on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate from the bottom of the cookie.
  • WHITE CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE: Return the chocolate-coated cookies to the lined baking sheet and allow it to completely dry. Make sure the remaining chocolate is still completely melted; if it's hardened at all, melt it for 10-15 seconds in the microwave. Use a spatula to scrape the remaining white chocolate into a small plastic bag and cut off the tip with scissors. Pipe the melted white chocolate over the cookies to form the "bandages" of the mummy.
  • EYES: Working quickly, Secure two sprinkle eyes on the wet chocolate. Let the cookies fully harden and enjoy! We like Mummy Cookies best chilled (straight out of the fridge).

  1. howww did I miss these the other day?! the. CUTEST! and who doesn’t love a milano? I’ll take 12, please 😉

  2. I tried to make these and am finding that the brown chocolate on the milano started to melt and contaminate the white chocolate. Did you have this issue and what did you do to fix it?

    1. I never have that issue and I make these a lot (not decorated up, but they are a favorite snack!) I wonder if perhaps your kitchen is warmer? I bet if you froze the milanos before dipping them it would solve that! 🙂
