Like most children, I was scared of monsters as a kid. But unlike most children, it wasn’t a fear of furry, four-eyed, fanged critters that lived under my bed or in my closet.

It was of the bad guys on Forensic Files. Because my parents toooootally thought it was okay to let their young child watch a show about real-life murderers.

So every time it was on and I heard Peter Thomas start to introduce the sleepy, quiet, Mayberry-esque town erupted by a gruesome murder, I ran into the room and glued my innocent child eyeballs to the TV to watch the morbid events unfold before me. And after 30 minutes of self-inflicted torture, I went to bed and dreamed that bad dudes would break into my room and I would end up having my life narrated by Peter Thomas.

AKA, toooootally normal stuff for a 7-year old to think.

So I did what any frightened child would do. And hint: it didn’t involve a boycott of Forensic Files. Oh noooo, that’d make too much sense. It involved hanging a wind chime in my bedroom window so if an intruder were to hypothetically break into my bedroom window, the serene glisten of wind chimes would awake me before my impending death. Because the sound of glass shattering apparently would not be enough of a wake-up call.

Anyway, for awhile I let my wind chime be my barrier between bad guys breaking in so I could continue to be a creepy kid and watch my murder show. Now monsters don’t scare me as much. I mean, if anything I kind of wish vampires were real because the Cullen family had some seriously lucky genes for being glittery all the time. Do you know how much money I could save on body glitter if I normally glistened?!

Since Halloween is this month (yay!) and ghouls and goblins are soon to be haunting our homes, I figured I’d whip up some tasty and silly monster bites for kids and adults alike to munch on. Nothing defeats a monster better than to eat him, and thankfully these adorable mummy pretzel bites are as delicious as they are harmless. The only place they’ll be hiding is in your tummy!

Monster Cookie Dough Pretzel Mummy Bites Recipe

    36 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 Oatmeal Cookie Mix
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter, Softened to room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Milk
  • 1/2 cup Miniature M&M's Candies
  • 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 72 Miniature Pretzel Twists
  • 16 ounces Vanilla Candiquik, 1 package
  • 72 Eyeball Sprinkles

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the oatmeal cookie mix, softened butter, milk, and peanut butter with a spoon or rubber spatula until a soft dough has formed. Stir in the miniature M&M’s and chocolate chips to combine; set the dough aside.
  2. Meanwhile, line a large baking sheet with foil or a silicone liner. Take a teaspoon or so of monster cookie dough and roll it into a small ball. Press two pretzels on either side of the cookie dough ball, creating a cookie dough pretzel sandwich. Place the sandwiches onto the prepared baking sheet and repeat 35 more times.
  3. Freeze the pretzel sandwiches for about 1 hour or until totally firm. Meanwhile, prepare the vanilla Candiquik according to package directions, or until smooth & melted.
  4. Using a fork, dip each pretzel sandwich into the vanilla Candiquik until coated completely. Gently lift the sandwich out of the Candiquik, allowing excess to drip off. Return the sandwich to the baking sheet and immediately attach two eyeballs. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
  5. Once all sandwiches have been coated, take the remaining Candiquik and pour it into a sandwich-sized resealable plastic bag. Seal out the air and snip off a corner of the bag. Begin drizzling the Candiquik over the pretzel bites to create the mummy “bandages.” Try to avoid getting the drizzle on their eyes, but do make sure to get the tops of their heads. Allow the Candiquik to dry before serving!
