Yummy Mummy Cheese Spread (Mummy Shape) Halloween

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by pamela t.

Originally from Taste of Home by Revecca Eremich of Bremerton, OH. I added more milk than the original recipe. This is the cutest mummy on the Halloween buffet, and kids and adults will get a kick out of stabbing the cheese knife into the poor mummy.

Cool and easy idea! I just used a plastic bag and cut a corner off to make it easier and no clean up required. Thank for this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the cheese logs into pieces for the mummy's head (make it a square shape) arms (smaller and thinner) and legs (longer than the arms).
  2. Arrange on the platter.
  3. Beat cream cheese ( softened at room temperature) and milk until smooth.
  4. Use a pastry or plastic bag and cut a small slit for piping.
  5. use a basket weave tip #47 and pipe mixture over the entire mummy ( I use a cookie decorating tool. It works almost like a caulking gun. I squeeze the trigger and the mixture pipes out).
  6. Leave one or two longer like the mummy is coming undone.
  7. Add two whole peppercorns for the eyes.
  8. Add the pimento strip for the mouth.
  9. Chill until ready to serve.
  10. Serve with crackers.
