Printable Recipe

Ingredients:
1 stick buter, softened
1 stick margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
3 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cups baking cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
Mini chocolate chips
3/4 package of white melting bark

Directions:
*Beat butter, margarine, sugar, vanilla and eggs until creamy. Mix in flour, baking cocoa, baking soda and salt until it forms a dough.
*Refrigerate for an hour.
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
*Roll about dough into approximately 36 balls, about 3/4 inch in diameter and 36 balls about 1/2 inch in diameter. Roll the larger balls into about 3 inch carrot shapes and put half of them on the cookie sheet.
*Press the smaller balls onto the thicker part of the carrot shaped cookie.  These will puff up so cook only half of them at a time.
*Bake 9 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes. Remove gently to cool completely, be careful not to separate the “head” from the body. Cool completely.
*Melt the bark as per package directions.
*Put each “mummy” onto a knife and pour chocolate over it to coat. Work in batches as you’ll have to stop coating to score the coated mummies.
*Attach two mini chocolate chips for the eyes.
*Keep an eye on them, it won’t take long, once the chocolate starts to set, score the mummies with a toothpick. Alternate the angle of the scoring (see picture). Allow to set completely.
