Halloween truffles that look like mummies

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday, and it’s not only a time of year that I like to craft, but it’s also a time of year that I like to bake. Or “no-bake,” if the situation arises.

This year I decided to tackle some Halloween truffles that look like mummies! These truffles are completely no bake Halloween treats for kids! Well, adults too. . . .

How to make mummy truffles for Halloween

I recently partnered with my favorite sweet treat brand, Hershey’s, to bring you a tasty dessert for the upcoming Halloween holiday. I chose to make no-bake, candy corn mummy truffles that are so cute you almost can’t eat them! Notice I said “almost.”

My favorite thing about these Halloween truffles, besides the fact that they are cute and friendly and sweet, is that they incorporate candy corn bars into the recipe. Making these Halloween treats taste like no other.

My second favorite thing is that they are really easy to make. No baking is required, and they are fool proof! Keep reading to learn how to make them.

Ingredients for Halloween truffles

We’re going to start by making the mummy truffle base. It’s very easy and you only need three ingredients – the butter cookies, cream cheese, and the candy bars. You’ll need about two or three of the bars . . . depending on how many truffles you want to make.

Cookie crumbs in a blender

Grind up the cookies in a mixer. I pulsated mine into a semi-fine powder. If you don’t have a mixer, never fear – you can put the cookies in a plastic bag and smash them with the back of a spoon until they are powdery.

Hershey's candy corn candy bars

Now you’re going to add the secret ingredient that makes these Halloween truffles super-dee-dooper: Hershey’s Candy Corn Bars!

Crushing Hershey's candy corn bars

I typically don’t endorse mashing up my candy, but you’re going to add these to the mummy truffles, so you need to break them into pieces. It’s easier so that the candy bars don’t go everywhere (the pieces stay contained).

Making Halloween truffles with simple supplies

Now you’re going to mix it all together. Place the cream cheese, cookie crumbs, and the bars into a mixing bowl. stir it all up until you’ve formed a ball. I found it easy to use my hands.

Once you’re done, roll the dough into 16 balls and place on a plate with wax paper. Set in the refrigerator for an hour.

The next step turns the truffles into mummies, and you’ll use the tools above.

Warm the candy melts in the cook pan according to the package instructions.

Once the candy melts are heated appropriately, dip the truffles into the coating using your tool(s). Pull back out and place on the wax paper; let cool.

Now you’ll put some of the coating into a piping bag and close the end. Two things: 1) it doesn’t matter exactly how large the tip is, just make sure it’s somewhat small; 2) have a dish towel in your squeezing hand because the piping bag is going to get hot!

Drizzle lines that look like mummy bandages over the coating. While the coating is still warm, place the candy eyes and bones on the truffles.

Let cool for an hour before sampling!

You could use regular Hershey bars - either chocolate, white chocolate . . . or there's a cookies and cream one too!
