I am a planner by nature.  I was the student who had her paper written a week before it was due. Last minute deadlines stress me out.  So you'd think that I would have my act together when it comes to parties in my kids classrooms.

I start thinking about what to make weeks ahead of time, but pretty much every single time there's a party, it's the day before I still haven't made anything.

That's why I love these adorable Halloween cookies! They are entirely semi-homemade so they're perfect for a last minute Halloween party.

Make sure to check out our semi-homemade Frankenstein Cookies, too!

Easy Mummy Halloween Cookies

Halloween Cookies

Everything on these cookies is store bought including the cookies.  These were made with sugar cookies purchased from the grocery store bakery.  You could make some sugar cookies. I think homemade sugar and spice cookies would work nicely, too.

But if you are like me, there's no time for baking just making.  You'll also need to pick up white fondant and candy eyeballs.  I've seen both of those items at Walmart and any craft store.  A top to a mason jar is used to cut the fondant in to circles, but a glass or round cookie cutter would work as well.

Yummy Mummy Cookies

To make the cookies, roll and cut the fondant out in to 10 circles.  Cut the top 1/4 of your white circles off, spread with a little melted chocolate chips on the bottom and press down on the top of your cookies to get the piece of fondant to stick.

Mummy Cookies

Do the same thing with the bottom 1/4 of the white fondant circles.

Cut the remaining portion of the fondant circle in half at an angle and use the chocolate to secure it to the cookies creating the rest of the mummy's face.

Easy Halloween Cookie Recipe

Don't forget to leave room for the eyes.  Attach the eyeballs with more chocolate.  And that's it!

This would be a great recipe to have the kids help make as well.  My kids love taking in food they've helped make to their classes.
