  • Cook: ~30 mins.
  • Serves: 1

Filed Under


  • 1 Pretzel Stick
  • 3 Big Marshmallows (not mini)
  • 6 Chocolate Wafer Cookies
  • 1 Fruit Roll Up (get the kind where the tape is split into 3 strips)
  • Cereal that looks like worms
  • 2 Hershey's chocolate dessert topping candies

Step 1

I went with fiber one cereal.


Step 2

Take 3 big marshmallows and your pretzel stick.


Step 3

Poke the pretzel stick all the way through 1 marshmallow, and then push the other 2 marshmallows onto each end like so:


Step 4

Open your fruit roll up package and roll the fruit tape around the bottom marshmallow so if you cut the ends of the fruit tape it would touch the other end when rolled around the marshmallow. In this picture you can see how this fruit tape has 3 separate segments. If yours doesn't you can cut 3 segments with a knife lengthwise.


Step 5

Snip the fruit tape with scissors at the point where both ends would meet. Having segments makes it easier to position each strip onto the mummy.


Step 6

Take the paper off the fruit tape. Then take each of the 3 strips and wrap each around the marshmallow keeping the untidy ends that don't meet up in the back where no one can see them. Continue wrapping each till you get to the last marshmallow.


Step 7

Wrap the last marshmallow like so, leaving an area for the mummy's eyes. Take something sharp and pointy, here I used a thermometer end to poke 2 little holes where I wanted the eyes. Then drop in the Hershey's chocolate dessert topping candies where the holes are and press gently on them to set them in place. You could always use a baking gel/frosting for the eyes also.


Step 8

Pop your chocolate wafer cookies in the microwave until they are warm.


Step 9

Separate the 2 cookie ends and scrape out the frosting in the middle.


Step 10

Place the de-frosted cookies in a sealed bag.


Step 11

Smash the cookies until ground into a fine powder.


Step 12

This will be the dirt for the mummy.


Step 13

The fiber one cereal will be our maggot worms.


Step 14

Empty the cookie dirt onto a plate in a nice rectangular pile. Place your marshmallow mummy on the dirt. Then stick in some of the maggot worms around him.
