These mummy haystacks are so cute and an easy no bake dessert to make! The perfect peanut butter Halloween treat that your kids can help you make too.
Halloween is a fun time to bake a create yummy creations, like these mummy haystacks!! They’re easy to do. We made these last year for Easter and made them into birds’ nests…switched it up a bit and now they’re an easy Halloween treat! These are great because not only do they taste really good but the kids can help you make them which makes them even more fun. (originally published 9/16)
You can make them any shape you like and it’s a great “baking” activity you can do with your kids for the fall.
No bake treats are the best because they’re quick to throw together and the kids can help out too. This is a pretty inexpensive snack to make too since you only need a few ingredients and most you probably already have at home.
It’s quite an inexpensive Halloween treat to make too which is always a plus. Peanut butter is big in our house, but if you cannot have that I imagine you may be able to substitute for sunflower butter or possibly cookie butter.
Here’s what you’ll need to make these mummy haystacks
You just melt the chips and peanut butter together, add the chow mein crunchy noodles and stir until all pieces are coated, then spoon some on to some parchment paper, add the eyes, and pipe some vanilla frosting in a zigzag across your mummy haystacks to create this cute treat.
I just fill a pint sized freezer bag with frosting, snip the end off, and squeeze on top. Here’s a printable recipe for you.
Here is a quick video showing how easy these Halloween mummy haystacks are to make.
