Happy Halloween, my lovely friends! 🎃🧡
These Easy Halloween Mummy Bites are a spooktacular treat! This no-bake recipe uses simple pantry staples to create a snack that’s not only frightfully adorable but also packs a healthy twist. These treats are the ultimate ghoulish goodies to savour this Halloween. Bonus: they’re gluten-free, dairy-free, and totally vegan!
I’m going to let you in on something: I absolutely love making no-bake recipes! There’s something incredibly satisfying about creating a sweet treat recipe that you can whip up on a whim when you’re craving something sweet. Especially when you use natural, wholesome ingredients that are good for your health and well-being. That’s what Pure Sprinkles is about after all :).
I wanted to experiment with new ingredients while keeping things super easy because Halloween is a time for spooky movies, costumes, and fun, not spending hours in the kitchen. So, here’s a quick and simple, no-bake recipe to enjoy this Halloween season.
For this year’s Halloween recipe, I decided to give my little creations a costume – yes, you heard it right! A costume made of velvety white ‘chocolate’ wrapped around airy brown rice crispies, creamy cashew butter, and a spoonful of coconut oil. Sweetened naturally with maple syrup and a hint of vanilla. The result? Adorable mummy bites! They’re frighteningly cute, aren’t they? I just couldn’t resist.
I also opted for using cashew butter instead of marshmallows to give them a fun healthy twist, that adds a lot of depth of flavour and a beautiful contrast in textures as well.
I’m also super excited to use Camino’s new Vegan White Baking Chips! I have been waiting for the perfect recipe to use them so I can show off these beauties!
• Loads of fun to make (especially with little kids)
• No bake recipe (that can be made ahead of time)
• Vegan friendly • Gluten-free • Dairy-free
• They’re super adorable
• No refined sugar or additives
And while I usually say that decorating is optional, in this case, it’s a must. It’s how we bring these cute mummies to life – well, figuratively speaking. But trust me, the effort is totally worth it. Not only do these treats taste AMAZING, but they’re also a blast to make. You can even turn it into a no-bake Halloween party with friends and family, and it’s a fantastic way to involve the kids. Who knows, it might become a Halloween tradition! So grab a spooky movie, gather in the kitchen, and whip up these delightful treats. The best part? You can indulge a little, or a lot, guilt-free. Enjoy! 😉

Let’s get into the Halloween spirit, and make some spooktacular Easy Halloween Mummy Bites!
Easy Halloween Mummy Bites
- 1 cup puffed brown rice crispies (puffed white rice or puffed quinoa will also work)
- ½ cup cashew butter* (or any other nut butter of choice)
- 2-3 tbsp maple syrup (or honey for non-vegan version)
- 2-3 tsp melted coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- pinch of sea salt
White Baking Chips Coating
- 1¼ cup dairy-free white baking chips** (adjust to your liking)
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- candied eyes (or large black sprinkles)
- large bowl
- small-medium stainless steel bowl (or heatproof glass bowl)
- small saucepan
- silicone spatula (large metal spoon)
- measuring cups and spoons
- parchment paper
- baking tray (that will fit into your freezer)
- oven mitts
- ziplock bags (optional)
Making Easy Mummy Bites
- Get a baking tray and line it with parchment paper. Set it aside.
- In a large bowl, mix together maple syrup, cashew butter, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil until you achieve a creamy, smooth consistency, and the cashew butter has slightly thinned down.
- Slowly add the puffed brown rice crispies, gently folding them into the mixture until everything is well combined. Feel free to add more rice crispies if you desire extra crunch.
- Now, it's time to roll the mixture into bite-sized balls of yumminess. Take 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll it in the palm of your hands, then place it on the lined baking tray. Repeat this process until you've used up all the mixture.
- TIP: Keep a small bowl of warm water nearby while rolling the balls to prevent your hands and fingers from getting too sticky from the mixture.
- Now, place the tray in the freezer to set for 15-20 minutes or until it hardens. NOTE: You could try coating the balls with the melted white baking chips immediately, but there's a chance they may fall apart. To prevent this from happening, it's best to place them in the freezer.
White Baking Chips Coating
- Melt the white baking chips using the double boiler method or in the microwave. For the full steps of the double boiler method, please refer to my recipe here, where I provide a detailed process. Once the white baking chips have melted down to a nice, smooth consistency, set aside. Also, reserve a ¼ cup in a separate bowl to use for decorating later.
- Remove the brown rice crispies balls from the freezer and allow them to rest at room temperature for 5 minutes. If they are too cold, the melted white baking chips will harden, and you will need to re-melt them.
- For the coating: Gently place each ball one at a time into the melted white baking chips. Move them around and spoon the mixture over the balls until it's fully covered. Carefully take them out and place them back on the lined baking tray. Repeat these steps until all balls are coated with the melted white baking chips.
- Set them back in the freezer for another 15 minutes or in the fridge for 30 minutes, or until they are set.
- Now for the best part – decorating time! Remove the balls from the freezer and retrieve the melted white baking chips we set aside earlier. If it has hardened for any reason, simply place it back on the double boiler for a few minutes or in the microwave (using a heat-safe bowl).
- It's time to unleash your inner Picasso and create these ghoulish Halloween treats. Use a spoon to drizzle the melted white baking chips over the balls until they resemble mummy-wrapped cloth. Alternatively, you can create your own piping bag with a Ziploc bag and drizzle the mixture that way. Be forewarned, it can get a little messy, but it's all part of the experience!
- Dip the candied eyes into a bit of the melted white baking chips and place them onto the balls. Your cute little Halloween Mummy Bites have now come to life! (again figuratively speaking, lol)
- Once you're finished, place them back in the freezer or fridge one last time to set another 15 minutes in the freezer or in the fridge for 30 minutes. Once set, they are ready to be eaten, enjoy!
