Mummies Revenge

Thanks to all of you who wrote, expressing interest in Morning Mummies and how, exactly, to make them. I've written a how-to guide, below. Please click on the image to make it larger, and print away. It was actually fun to revisit this project so long after I made it originally.

A few details:
1. This time, I used a croissant dough from one of those tubes in the refrigerator section of the grocery store. It worked great. One tube would make 2 large Mummies (the size instructed), or four small ones (about half the size).
2. I set the oven to the temp instructed on the dough tube, and kept a close eye on the Mummies, as my oven is hot and my patience is low. Please watch your Mummies carefully and gauge this for yourself.

3. Last time I used icing for the eyes. This time I cut the end of candy corn. Both work great, but add the candy eyes when the Nutella is still warm, and the icing when it's cooled. Enjoy!

I hope you have a spook-tacular baking experience, and send me photos of your result!

I love that idea! I have never had Nutella but I bet it would be great with lots of things, like apple pie filling, or maybe I should just try Nutella!

Holly - these are so stinkin cute, I can't stand it! Thanks for the play by play.

Maybe I should make these today as I sit and woe in my involuntary shunning.
