Kids Kitchen: Halloween Mummy Treats

by Jennifer McLaughlin on Oct 21st, 2014

While it took 70 days to prepare an ancient Egyptian Mummy, you will only need a few minutes for each of these delicious treats! Remember, eating a good meal before heading out to parties and trick-or-treating will discourage children (and grown-ups!) from filling up on Halloween candy.

So, get your ingredients prepped and enjoy making these spooky kid's kitchen creations.

Total Time:
1 hour (depending on how many mummies you will need to feed the family - add 3 more minutes for each mummy treat to be completed)

Prep:
30 min

Cook:
30 min

Level:
Easy

Ingredients:

  • Crescent Roll Dough
  • Hot Dogs
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Bread (I used fresh baked Italian bread from the grocery store!)
  • Black Olives (halves or slices)
  • Mozzarella or Provolone Cheese Slices

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line baking sheets with non stick foil.
  3. Unroll the dough and slice into thin strips on a cutting board.
  4. Wrap the hot dogs loosely with the strips of dough - the key is to making them look like mummy wrappings, leaving space for eyes to “pop” out.
  5. Place Mummy Dogs into the oven first, as they take a little longer than the pizzas, bake until the dough is browned and crisp to your liking (approx. 12-15 minutes).
  6. While the Mummy Dogs bake, also slightly toast 8 slices of bread.
  7. Slice the cheese into thin strips, making them look like gauze, mummy wrappings. (Cut different size strips to make wrappings more realistic).
  8. Take the toasted bread out of the oven and spread pizza sauce on top.
  9. Add two black olives for eyes and begin to “wrap” your mummy toast with the cheese strips.
  10. Bake in the oven until cheese becomes slightly melted, but the mummy wrappings still remain defined (approx. 5-7 minutes).

Now, eat and enjoy your mummy inspired dinner before you hit the streets for Halloween fun!

Fun Tips:

  • Allow the kids to wrap the Mummy Dog’s and decorate them with ketchup and mustard!
  • For decoration purposes only, I used plastic googly eyes. These are NOT the edible kind but you can use the candy ones or get creative and use a dollop of ranch dressing and a black olive to make some!
  • Eat the Mummy Bread Pizzas while they are still warm, once they sit out too long the cheese and bread hardens!
