  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup HERSHEY'S Mini Chips Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  • 1 to 2 packages (12 oz. each) HERSHEY'S Premium White Chips
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons shortening
  • Additional HERSHEY'S Mini Chips Semi-Sweet Chocolate


  • 1. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Combine flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in 1 cup small chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough 20 minutes or until firm enough to handle.
  • 2. Heat oven to 350°F. For mummy body, roll 1 tablespoon dough into 3-1/2 inch long carrot shape; place on ungreased cookie sheet. For head, roll 1 teaspoon dough, roll into ball the size of a grape; press onto wide end of body. Repeat procedure with remaining dough.
  • 3. Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
  • 4. Microwave 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) white chips and 1 tablespoon shortening in microwave-safe pie plate or shallow bowl at MEDIUM (50%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted.
  • 5. Place 1 cookie at a time on table knife or narrow metal spatula. Spoon white chip mixture over just the top of cookie to coat; place on wax paper. (If mixture begins to thicken, return to microwave for a few seconds.) Melt additional chips with shortening, if needed for additional coating. As coating begins to set on cookies, use toothpick to score lines in body and on face to resemble mummy . Place two small chocolate chips on each for eyes. Store, covered, in cool dry place. Makes about 30 cookies.

Ratings & Reviews

    Can you imagine the delight of a child when they see these cookies on Halloween?
    Cookie was very tasty and not too difficult to make. I made extra icing and dipped the cookies instead of spooning the icing on.
    Delicious cookie but getting the white chocolate on them is a bit of a task. This last time I made them I used a 1/2 inch paintbrush and when I added the chocolate the cookies were still quite warm to aid in spreading it. I made them into ghosts for my sons Pre-K class instead of mummies.
    I think they are amazing looking! I think i am going to make them for my class.
