Hello, I am Mummy…

halloween cookie suckers

Yummy Mummy! {Ha, I’m a dork}.

halloween cookie suckers

You know we are all about oreo cookie suckers around here. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to make some spooky treats.  I started thinking, if we can make oreos into something cute, what other cookies could we transform?

How about Nutter Butters?  ‘OOOoooOOOooo’!

I couldn’t stop there!!  I had so much fun on the cookie aisle at the grocery store.  I was determined to find more cookie shapes to transform.  Who would have thought Mother’s Sandwhich cookies would make such fabulous tombstones?

I just loved how these crazy mummies turned out.  They are my favorite.  They make me smile. :)  I love their big eyes peeking through.

Oh the kids are going to love these!!!  They are so fun to make, funner to give, and even funner to eat.

Follow the basic Oreo Cookie Sucker instructions to start.


You’ll need: Oreo cookies, Sucker Sticks, White Candy Melts, and BIG googily candy eyes (amazing price).

Instructions: Dip cookie sucker into white melted candy coating, immediately stick on candy eyes, let dry.  Use a piping bag (or plastic bag with the end cut off) to drizzle white lines over the eyes. Easy.  -I used a ‘ribbon piping’ tip at the end of my piping bag to get the wider ribbon like lines.  If you prefer the thicker lines (instead of thin stringy lines) try using a ribbon piping tip.


You’ll Need: Nutter butter cookies, Sucker Sticks, White Candy Melts, SMALL googily candy eyes, and a Black edible writing pen.

Instructions: Cut off very bottom of Nutter Butter with a knife, dip cookie sucker into white melted coating, immediately stick on candy eyes, let dry.  Make crazy ghost faces with black edible marker.


You’ll need: Mother’s Cream filled cookies, Sucker Sticks, White Candy MeltsBlack Liquid Candy Color (don’t use food coloring, it will ruin your melted chocolate), and Green Candy Melts.

Instructions: Make ‘RIP’ by using a piping bag with white melted candy coating.  Write RIP on wax paper and let harden (I stuck mine in the freezer for a few minutes).  Make grey candy coating by melting white candy coating, and adding Black candy color. Dip cookie sucker into grey coating, immediately add ‘RIP’. Let dry. Using a piping bag (or plastic bag with end cut off) make grass on the bottom of the tombstone . Use a fork to get the ‘grass effect’.

Wouldn’t these be so fun to serve at a Halloween party?  Maybe even in a Halloween cookie sucker holder?! Oh, I LOVE this time of year!

      Don't laugh, but I tried my first attempt at making oreo cookie pops, but my cookies fell off the stick when I dipped them in the chocolate! I spooned them out and then spooned on the chocolate. I'll need to practice more...yum.
      • October 15th, 2010 at 11:08 am
        Shelley says:
        Oh no!! Make sure you dip the stick in the melted chocolate before sandwiching the stick in. Then let the chocolate harden before dipping the whole cookie. --Clear as mud?! :) Hope that helps.

        Make sure you dip the stick in chocolate, put it in the sandwich, and let it HARDEN before trying to dip the suckers. You can speed this up by sticking them in the fridge for a few minutes. Hope that helps! :)

      Barbara Ann says:
      Wow, has this been frustrating for me. I made sure to dip the sticks first in the melted chocolate, let it harden between the 2 cookie sides, and then dip after it hardens. I found that the center just re-melts when I dip the cookie and then the stick slides right out again. I have tried with about a dozen and have given up. Sad face. So now I am stuck with 35 Oreos on a stick. What to do...what to do....

        Edited to Add:
        OK, after much stewing over this, I had my lightbulb moment. Let me preface this, by saying, I am a TOTAL novice in the creative dept. (like you couldn't tell), so this update will be common sense to most of you. But maybe for that 0.50% of others who share my culinary pain, this is for you:

        When you dip the cookies after you've let the chocolate harden, let the chocolate in the dipping bowl COOL DOWN for about 5 minutes, so that it's still soft but not burn your fingers hot. OK, I know, I know, DUH!!! I feel so ashamed to even post this, as I am a total fool, but like I said, maybe others who didn't think of doing this and having no success will find it helpful.
        My mummies aren't turning out as beautiful as yours, but I'm sure my son's little buddies won't notice the flaws!!!

        Happy Halloween!!!

          Oh I'm so glad you commented! I'm sorry yours aren't turning out as expected. My mother-in-law tried these a few nights ago and her chocolate was too lumpy, no matter what she did. I have never had problems making my cookie suckers,...but I think the stars have to align for everything to go perfectly. Weather? Right chocolate? Who knows? Thanks for your input. Hopefully others are having success!

        Make sure to dip the stick in the melted chocolate first. Let it harden by either waiting a bit or putting it in the fridge. They should hold well! Sometimes I use double stuff cookies for extra hold. Hope that helps!

      do they sell oreo cookies with no creame center just the cookie itself u see im not putting on a stick, just dip and ribbing dipping outer edge, and put on a plate, and how long can they stay outside, it will be served 2 hrs at 6pm do they need to b refrigerated or just keep in a cool place, your comment would be appreciated , thanks

        Katie says:
        I've never seen the oreo cookies without the creme center. I wonder if there's a different cookie that would work? I'm guessing as long as they stay in a cool place you should be good. If it's super hot you'll want to get them in the fridge before too long. Good luck!
