I love Halloween. It is the time of year when spooky and messy concoctions are celebrated and even wholeheartedly welcomed.

Each year, as Halloween approaches I try to incorporate as many cute and simply made themed treats, snacks and meals for my family to enjoy as I can. It is fun for me make these treats, and then of course, experiencing the fun of Halloween with the simple delight and wonder my children have is the best.

So today, I am excited to share with all of you how to make an adorable mummy snack that I know all of your little ghouls and goblins will love.

No need to spend hours slaving away in a kitchen, because these snacks take only a few minutes to put together and taste absolutely delicious.

These mummy snacks are the perfect contribution to a classroom party activity, in a lunchbox or at a Halloween party you are hosting in your home. It would even be a spooky and fun after-school activity to make and enjoy with your children.

"Mummy" Snack Crackers


  • 1 package of your favorite circle snack crackers. I used a whole wheat variety.
  • 1 package of regular or turkey pepperoni
  • 1 package of your favorite kind of white cheese. I used Swiss, because the holes just screamed mummy.
  • 1 can of sliced olives


*To make assembling go more smoothly, I first cut small, skinny slices of the cheese and put them to the side.

  1. Place a single pepperoni slice on top of one of the snack crackers.
  2. Randomly place the strips of cheese you previously cut on top of the pepperoni.
  3. To complete your mummy creation, place two of the sliced olives toward the top of the cracker to create your mummy eyeballs.

Voilà! Your mummy snacks are done. Isn't this amazingly easy?

I hope you enjoyed this deliciously simple recipe and have fun creating your own mini mummies.
