Kellog’s eat your heart out! These Spookalicious Mummy pop tarts are the new Halloween snack on the block! I am taking orders for whenever you are ready! Rich cookies and cream filling stuffed within the middle of the mummy and then drizzled with white icing. Top it off with those cute little eyes and your dessert is complete!
Pop tarts have always been one of my favorite breakfast foods. You can eat them toasted or not toasted and they always taste amazing. So making this dessert was a no brainer for me! My eldest has already eaten 2 of them!
Mummies and Halloween
The process of mummification has been a part of human ritual as early as 3000 BCE. Egyptians were the first to purposely practice the act of mummification and are the most popular when people think of mummies.
Apparently, dead bodies don’t sit well with people and the idea of a well preserved body seems to cause some panic.Nonetheless, Hollywood began making movies with mummies as evil abominations that rise from the dead. Mummy costumes came along and these creatures of the night became a huge part of Halloween!
Mummy costumes are one of my favorites, but my kiddos haven’t humored me and let me wrap them up! However, they did help me make the spooklicious mummy pop tarts. Decorating and eating them was something they really enjoyed!
INgredients for the mummy pop tarts
Tip and tricks for the mummy pop tarts
- If the pie dough dries out, use a little bit of water between your fingers to pinch edges and create a better seal
- Once the pop tarts are baked, the cookies and cream filling gets hardened. Spread a little extra filling that is not cooked over the area before placing the candy eyes.
- Other fillings can be used such as any fruit/pie filing.
How to make the Spookalicious Mummy pop tarts
- First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Roll out all the pie crusts on the counter. Cut off the rounded edges to make square shapes. I had about 15 of them.
- Second, place the oreo cookies into the food processor to crush to a fine crumb mixture. Then, with an electric mixer, mix together the cream cheese, butter,and vanilla until smooth. Fold in the oreo cookie mixture. Spread about 2 teaspoons on each rectangular squares.
- Third, cut the rest of the pie crust dough into long thin strips. Place them along the top of the square and pinch the edges underneath to seal them.
- Fourth, continue to criss cross strips of the dough to make the pastries look like a mummy. Bake the pop tarts on the baking sheets for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
- Lastly, once the pastries are cooled down, drizzle with white icing and put candy eyes in at the top.
