Mummy Poop and {{Free}} Printable

Wanna hear something super exciting??????

In less than five days I will get to hold my little man. I'm scheduled to deliver this Friday so I am super excited,  yet at the same time filled with the feeling that it's not enough time to finish everything that needs to be done.

But seriously, when do I (or anyone else for that matter) ever have enough time to finish all that NEEDS to be done.

Whatever....let's move on to Mummy Poop.

Yes, Mummy Poop! Gross or intriguing????  Please read more, before you decide.

I coined the name "Mummy Poop" but what it's really called, I'm not entirely sure.( If you know, please let me know) I first tasted this at a group picnic of my fellowship a few months back and literally tracked down the woman who made it to tell me what it was made of.

(For those of you with peanut or any type of nut allergies, because this probably isn't the treat for you.) It's a mixture of melted white chocolate, peanut butter, miniature marshmallows and peanuts. I'm thinking it's a spin off of Rocky Road, except with white chocolate and peanut butter.

Although now that  think about it, it would probably taste awesome with regular old chocolate too......so I'll have to think of another type of treat that can become, hopefully something less "immature" than Mummy Poop....or not .

But in a nut shell...it's soooooo effin' good.

This is what you will need.....
  • Package of white chocolate or white chocolate candy melts.
  • Creamy Peanut Butter
  • Miniature Marshmallows
  • Peanuts
  • Wax Paper lined baking sheet.
Now this is probably the easiest thing you can ever make in your life, because in all honesty you really don't have to measure anything. It's all a taste thing, but for those of you that are unsure I'll break it down a bit. But keep in mind you can add more or less of anything in this recipe to cater it to your own tastes....any which way you do it will taste fabulous....

Just trust :)  seriously.....
  • Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave in short bursts.
  • Add in 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter to the melted chocolate, mix it well.
  • Add in 1 cup of mini marshmallows, mix.
  • Add 1/2 cup of peanuts....mix :)

After you have your concoction together, scoop them out onto wax paper to set. You can make them as big or as small as you like. If you want them to set fast, stick them in the fridge. If they end up to big, they can easily be cut into smaller pieces.

As your "Mummy Poop" is setting, you can print out these fun labels.

You actually have a few options with these. You can fill clear cello bags with your Mummy Poop and fold and attach these to the top. I used bags that were 3-3/4 x 6. The folded labels measure a little over 3-3/4 across. So they fit wonderfully and make fun little treat bags to give out, but I'm sure if needed you could use sandwich baggies as well.

You can alternatively fill a bowl with your Mummy Poop and just fold the printable to be used as a food label.

How ever you choose to use them, they will definitely peek peoples interest to taste the strangle concoction and after that first bite, they'll be reaching for another piece! But if peanut butter goodness is not your thing, don't fret, you can use plain old marshmallows as well.....still fun!!!

You can print out the template for the Mummy Poop {{HERE}} I used a card stock to print them on because I like a thicker label for use, but regular old paper could be used a well. There are 6 images on the template so all you need to do is print and cut them out!!

Hope you enjoyed this post. Please continue to check back weekly for all the Halloween themed treats and printables I'll be posting as Halloween approaches!
