Mummy Cookies: Super-Easy & Allergy-Friendly


What scares me most about Halloween? Craftiness. But these simple mummy cookies helped me overcome some creative fears without pushing outside of my comfort zone.

Mummy Cookies Recipe - Super Easy! Made dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan & allergy-friendly

Growing up, I witnessed my mother’s ability to hand-sew our clothes and create beautiful paintings from photographs. But her perfectionist nature eventually stopped her artistic hobbies. I inherited her stickler attitude toward details, but my father’s very analytical nature (read: zero artistic talent). So the very idea of a holiday that focuses so heavily on visual crafts is quiteย frightening to me.

Nonetheless,ย I was determined to do something spooky this year, rather than playing it safe with pumpkin recipes. But youย need not worry about me getting too elaborate. If I can make these Mummy Cookies, then I guarantee that anyone can!

These mummy cookies are a cute, fun, and super-easy treat for parties or even making with kids. And since they use convenient ingredients, you can whip them up in less than 30 minutes.

To keep them vegan, gluten-free, and free of top allergens, I use Enjoy Life crunchy cookies and chocolate chips. But if you’re like Tony and can’t keep your hands out of the chocolate chip bag (sometimes it’s hard to finish a chocolate recipe around here!), Enjoy Life also has new single-serve snack packs of their Mini Chips and Dark Morsels to keep you satisfied.

Mummy Cookies
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 1 dozen cookies
  1. Melt the chocolate chips with the oil or shortening. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Dip the tops of the cookies in the chocolate (go ahead, get your hands chocolaty!), letting excess drip off . Turn them right side up onto a wire rack or sheet lined with wax or parchment paper.
  3. Place the cookies in the refrigerator while you make the icing..
  4. Add the powdered sugar to a mixing bowl and drizzle in the vanilla. Add the milk beverage, 1 teaspoon at a time, until you get a thick, but slightly drizzly icing. You might need just 3 teaspoons or you might need 5. I use exactly 4 teaspoons.
  5. Place the icing in something with a narrow opening for piping. I love using squeeze bottles and bought ones like these at the grocery store.
  6. Pull the cookies from the refrigerator once the chocolate is set.
  7. Pipe two icing dots on each cookie for the eyes. Press a mini chocolate chip, upside down, in the center of each icing eye.
  8. Pipe icing across the cookies in a random fashion like mummy bandages.
  9. Store in a single layer until ready to serve. Because our place is warm, and I don't temper the chocolate, I keep them chilled. But they should keep at room temperature, too.

  1. Love chocolate chip-oatmeal cookies and rice krispy treats! The rice krispy treat always brings back childhood memories, my mom always makes them ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. We just moved into a neighborhood that is ALL ABOUT the Halloween celebrations. I’ve been thinking of something to bring to the festivities and these would be perfect!

  3. These are so adorable. And every time I see them I want to shove a handful in my mouth!! ๐Ÿ™‚ My fave dairy free homemade Halloween treat is brownies. I don’t know why, but I always associate rich chocolatey brownies with Halloween. Boo!

    These are so cute and festive! My favorite treat to make lately has been pumpkin caramel cheesecake with a spiced apple topping โœŒ

  5. These look adorable! Sharing them in my updated Halloween treat roundup. ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite dairy-free treat at the moment is my Paleo Power Balls. I think I’ll make a triple batch and dip them in melted Enjoy Life chocolate chips for Halloween. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Thanks Shirley, that’s awesome! Do you have those Power Balls up on your site? They sound familiar, but I don’t know if I’m remembering incorrectly. If you do, feel free to share the link here as I’m sure others would love to see those!

  6. My favorite dairy free Halloween treat would have to be buckeyes. I’m from Ohio and they’re a must have around here.
