Spooky Halloween Snacks for Kids: Chocolate Peanut Butter Hand Pie Mummies

Halloween is a time for ghosts, ghouls, and, most importantly, delicious treats! If you’re looking for a fun and spooky snack that will delight kids and adults alike, you’re in for a treat. In this blog post, I’m going to show you how to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Hand Pie Mummies. These adorable mummy-shaped hand pies are not only delicious but also a perfect addition to your Halloween party spread. Best of all, they’re easy to make, and kids can join in on the fun!

To get started on these delectable mummy hand pies, you’ll need the following ingredients:


  1. Pre-made pie crusts (store-bought or homemade)
  2. Chocolate peanut butter (or a mixture of chocolate spread and regular peanut butter)
  3. Sprinkles for eyes
  4. Egg wash (1 egg mixed with water)
  5. Confectioners sugar


  1. Roll Out the Pie Crusts:
    Start by rolling out your pre-made pie crusts on a floured surface. This will make the dough easier to work with. Using a rectangle cookie cutter, cut out circles from the pie crusts. These will serve as the base for your mummy hand pies.
  2. Add Chocolate Peanut Butter:
    Take each rectangle and spread a generous amount of chocolate peanut butter (or a mixture of chocolate spread and regular peanut butter) in the center. Leave some space around the edges to seal the hand pies later.
  3. Create the Mummy Look:
    To give your hand pies a mummy appearance, take another small piece of pie crust dough and cut it into thin strips. Lay these strips over the chocolate peanut butter-covered circles to create the “bandages.” Make sure to leave a small gap for the eyes.
  4. Add Mini Chocolate Chip Eyes:
    Place two mini chocolate chips on each hand pie to serve as the mummy’s eyes. You can use a bit of the peanut butter mixture to help them stick in place.
  5. Brush the mummies with egg wash.
  6. Bake:
    Preheat your oven to the temperature recommended on the pie crust packaging. Place your mummy hand pies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake them for the recommended time or until they turn golden brown.
  7. Serve and Enjoy:
    Once your mummy hand pies are out of the oven and have cooled down a bit, sprinkles with confectioners sugar and these spooky treats to your little goblins! They’re perfect for Halloween parties, school lunches, or a fun family baking project.

  1. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Hand Pie Mummies are a delightful Halloween treat that kids and adults will adore. The combination of chocolate and peanut butter encased in a cute mummy-shaped pie crust is both delicious and visually appealing. They’re a wonderful addition to your Halloween snack lineup, and you can get creative with the bandage designs.

We definitely needed to do an arts and craft before the movie and these painting kits were definitely the best!

Another great activity during the party is caramel apple dipping kit from Trader Joe’s.

Spooky Butternut Squash Mini Pizzas

Spooky Butternut Squash Mini Pizzas

It’s pizza night, but let’s make it spooky!

I am sharing a fall inspired pizza recipe with creepy crawler toppings to enjoy during your horror movie marathon!

Butternut squash sauce is delicious and adds great flavor to pastas, dips and pizza!


For the sauce-

½ butternut squash, cut up

3 cloves of garlic, minced

3 tbs olive oil

1 tbs thyme

Salt and pepper

1 cup vegetable broth

1/4 cup tomato paste

For the pizzas-

Pizza crust ( I used Angelic Bakehouse flat bread pizza crusts)

Shredded cheese

Mozzarella cheese slices

Olives, black and green

Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix squash and garlic together in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with thyme, salt and pepper.

Roast for about 25 to 30 minutes or until tender.

Transfer squash mix to a food processor or blender. Puree until the mixture is smooth. Add the broth and tomato paste and puree again.

With the oven still on, spread sauce on your pizza, top with cheese and toppings of your choice. I cut olives in half and sliced little legs to make spiders on one. I made another by cutting out ghosts on mozzarella slices using a cookie cutter. I also made creepy eyes by cutting out circles of more cheese and olives slices to top on the pizza.

Bake pizza for about 8-10 minutes.

Pair with some Halloween pajamas and a spooky movie. Enjoy!

Other fun toppings to use

Green pepper Frankensteins

Pepperoni pumpkins

Onion skeletons

Basil brooms

Sausage brains
