M&M'S Mummies

Share This:

Kids will love helping by stirring the marshmallows, adding the M&M’S and carefully placing the eyes on these sweet and spooky Halloween treats!








3 tbsp butter

1 pkg (10 oz) marshmallows

1 tsp vanilla

6 cups crispy rice cereal

1 cup M&M’S Harvest Variety, divided

1 cup chopped white chocolate (about 4 oz)

32 candy eyes


1. Grease 13- x 9-inch baking dish; set aside. In large saucepan set over low heat, melt butter, marshmallows and vanilla. Stir in cereal until completely coated.

2. Set aside 16 M&M’S; stir remaining M&M’S into cereal mixture until evenly distributed. Using greased spatula, firmly press mixture into prepared pan. Let stand for 1 hour or until set. Cut into 16 rectangles.

3. Place chocolate in heatproof bowl set over saucepan of barely simmering water; stir until melted. Carefully transfer to re-sealable plastic bag; snip off one corner to make small hole.

4. Arrange cereal rectangles on rack set over parchment paper. Drizzle with melted chocolate, using back and forth motion in a diagonal direction, until almost completely coated (to resemble mummy bandages). Arrange 2 candy eyes and an M&M for the nose on each mummy. Let stand until chocolate is firm.


• Candy eyes can be found in the decorating section of bulk food stores.

• If desired, place chocolate in microwave-safe bowl; microwave on Medium, stirring every 30 seconds, for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth and melted.
