  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour + extra for rolling
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups white candy melts
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 oz. white rolling fondant
  • 1 black edible marker pen
  • 1 gingerbread man cookie cutter about 3 inches long and 2 inches wide


  • In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg and vanilla and beat until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix together until cookie dough forms.
  • Wrap the cookie dough in plastic and chill in the fridge for at least one hour.
  • Once the dough is chilled, preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add flour to a clean work surface. Roll out dough on the floured surface with a rolling pin - about ¼ of an inch thick.
  • Cut out 12 “gingerbread man shapes” with the cookie cutter. Place each one carefully on the lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake for about 6-7 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack before decorating.
  • Roll out white fondant until it’s about 1/3 inch.
  • Use the tip of Wilton piping tip #12 to cut out 48 circles.
  • Draw a dot on each circle (for the pupils) with the edible marker pen.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, add candy melts and coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals or until completely melted, stirring between each interval.
  • Scoop the melted candy into a plastic piping bag. Cut a small slit at the end.
  • Add candy melt stripes on each of the sugar cookie cutouts… these will act as the “wrapping” on the mummy. It doesn’t matter if it’s uneven - the less perfect the stripes are, the creepier they will look!
  • Add 2 fondant eyes on the head of each cookie. Allow the cookies to set. Enjoy!
