Mummy Dessert Ingredients
A can of Pillsbury crescent rolls, some fun size Snickers bars, candy eyes, and powdered sugar are all you need to make this spooky pastry treat.
You can use another brand of crescent rolls dough if you want, or cut full size Snickers in half. There are different kinds of candy eyes you can get, as well as plastic novelty ones you can add after baking (not suitable for small kids!)
As for the powdered sugar, this is the same thing as icing sugar or confectioner’s sugar.
How to Make Snickers Spooky Pastry Desserts
Stretch out the dough triangles and put a fun size Snickers bar on each one. Trim off the pointed parts of each triangle and keep those parts for later.
Next you can cut some strips in the dough on each side of the Snickers bar, then fold and wrap them around the chocolate. The strips can crisscross over the Snickers to resemble wrapped bandages, adding the reserved strips too.
Arrange the Halloween snickers mummy treats on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes or until golden. If you’d rather use your air fryer, a few minutes at 375 degrees F should be fine.
Sprinkle over powdered sugar, add candy eyeballs and serve warm from the oven or at room temperature.
How to Stop Melted Snickers Leaking Out
When baking something with a chocolate filling, you’ll want to make sure the Snickers doesn’t just melt everywhere and make a mess. This is true whether you’re using the oven or the air fryer.
As long as your oven is nice and hot before you put the Halloween snickers mummy treats in there, the pastry should cook and go crispy before the chocolate has a chance to melt and seep through. To make doubly sure, refrigerate the fun size Snickers bars first.
If you get the Pillsbury crescent rolls ‘bandages’ close together when wrapping them over the Snickers, there won’t be so many places the chocolate can come out.
If it does a little, then it won’t really matter. After all, there are probably some gross things that come out of real mummies when the bandages are removed!
Making Halloween Treats Ahead of Time
You know what it’s like when you’re rustling up all kinds of Halloween treats? Well, you probably don’t want to be making everything at the same time! Halloween snickers mummy treats are nice served warm from the oven but they’re also fine if you make them a few hours or even a day ahead.
Another idea would be to make them and arrange them on a baking sheet but don’t pop them in the oven until you’re ready to serve them. This would free up your time to work on other seasonal favourites such as Halloween pizza and Halloween candy bark.
Halloween Snickers Mummy Treats FAQs
This mummy dessert will be just as good with another kind of candy bar inside, so if Snickers isn’t your favourite, or you want to go nut-free, pick your preferred alternative instead.
If you aren’t in the mood for sweet treats, you might like to change the recipe a little. Wrap the dough around hot dogs rather than Snickers bars, omit the powdered sugar and use a couple of dots of mustard on the ‘head’ area of the mummy to resemble eyes!

Use the remaining strips to crisscross over the body of the Snickers mummy and tuck any excess dough under the mummies. Leave a small space towards the top open so that you can place eyes after it bakes.

- Place the mummies a couple inches apart on your prepared baking sheet.
- Bake at 400 degrees for approx 10 minutes or until lightly golden on top.
