Ingredients

  • 6 Hostess Twinkies
  • 1 bag white Wilton Candy Melts
  • 12 Wilton Candy Eyes
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or Crisco
  • Ziploc bag
  • Parchment paper
  • 6 Halloween-themed paper straws or Lollipop Sticks

Instructions

  1. Unwrap Twinkies and place in freezer on a sheet of parchment paper.
  2. Melt one bag of Wilton Candy Melts in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, the microwave method can be used. I tried both and the double boiler is superior. You can easily make your own double boiler with a saucepan and a heatproof bowl (glass, metal, Pyrex). Fill the saucepan with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Place heatproof bowl with melting chocolate on top on the saucepan, making sure the bowl fits snugly.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons coconut oil to melted chocolate. Stir. The coconut oil is my secret ingredient for the perfect melting chocolate. The oil adds a slight coconut flavor, which I found to be very yummy! Crisco can also be used in the places of coconut oil.
  4. Dip Twinkies, one by one in melted chocolate. If you have trouble dipping, you can use a pastry brush, or even a spoon to spread chocolate onto Twinkie until covered. Set on parchment paper. Removed any excess chocolate from around the Twinkies.
  5. Add two candy eyes to each Twinkie.
  6. Insert straw or lollipop stick into the bottom of each Twinkie.
  7. Carefully pour remaining chocolate into a Ziploc bag.
  8. Snip a small corner of the Ziploc bag with scissors, and pipe chocolate across the Twinkies to create the mummy bandages.
  9. Transfer to fridge for a quick set.
