Mummy Halloween treats

Halloween is my favorite time to try new treats because messy and imperfect only adds to the Halloween look!  (Kind of like not dusting for the whole month of October : )  I had to try out some cake pops. 

Have you tried making cake pops?  Way easier than I thought!  What you need for these cute mummy pops:
1 cake mix, baked and cooled
1 16oz. ready made frosting
 White candy melts
White chocolate chips
M&M minis
Lollipop sticks
Styrofoam block

1. Once the cake is cooled, crumble into a large bowl or Bosch/Kitchen aid.
2. Add about 3/4 of the frosting container and mix until it forms a "dough."
3. Roll into 2 inch balls and place on wax paper.
4. Melt the candy melts until smooth (must be candy melts for this;  white chocolate chips are too thick and Almond bark is too thin.)
5. Dip one end of the lollipop sticks into the melted candy melts and insert into each cake ball about halfway.
6. Chill uncovered for several hours in the refrigerator or about 15 minutes in freezer.  They need to be firm but not frozen.
7. Roll each pop in the melted candy melts until covered.  Tap and rotate carefully on the bowl to drip off excess.
8. Place mini M&M's  for the eyes.
9. Insert into a Styrofoam block to dry.
10.  Melt white chocolate chips now for mummy wrappings.  (Thicker works well for drizzling.) Drizzle over each pop using a Ziploc with the corner cut, or a squeeze bottle.
Done!  See what I mean about messy and imperfect?  They really turn out so cute!

As long as we're talking mummy's;  I made these fun mummy juice boxes for a Halloween party.
They are cheap, fast and easy!  What you need:
Juice boxes, white crepe paper ( I only used 1 roll,) googly eyes, tape, glue gun.

Pull off the straws, we'll tape them back on later.  Fold crepe paper over 3 or 4 times and punch a hole for the straw.

Tape onto the top of the juice box, matching your punched hole with the straw spot of course : )

Tape the end of  the crepe paper onto the juice box and just wrap and twist until it looks mummified. 

Hot glue googly eyes, re-tape the straw to the back and they are ready to go! 

Happy Halloween!
