Mummy Candy Bars

Last year, a clever neighbor gave me a candy bar wrapped up like a mummy. I squealed, “Oh my gosh, this is the most adorable thing I've ever seen!” and then promptly unwrapped our friend King Tut the mummy candy bar, ate him, and stole the idea for my blog.

You're welcome.

How to Make Mummy Candy Bars

Any candy makes a good mummy candy bar. I've seen the idea even done with lollipops! You just need googly eyes, scissors and surgical tape (or washi tape or masking tape…happen to have surgical tape around because I have boys and boys are dangerous, scary creatures).

Affix the eyes and then wrap…and wrap….and wrap some more.

The mummy candy bar idea can be effectively executed on just about any candy with a flat(ish) front and back. This Jolly Rancher package-turned mummy totally reminds me of Beaker from The Muppets.

Turn your candy bar into a mummy

My favorite bars for this project are Kit Kats or plain old Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars because A) they taste chocolatey and delicious and B) their long slender size make them look kind of like people. I love the idea of taking favorite candy bars and personalizing them for the seasons. Next I plan to make some cute Halloween candy bar labels.
