Goosebumps: The Curse of the Pumpkin Mummy Truffles

Need an adorable Halloween treat? Goosebumps Curse of the Mummy Truffles are perfect! A cute mummy outside and delicious pumpkin truffles on the inside! | The Love Nerds

To say that I am excited for the Goosebumps movie to release in a few weeks is an understatement. Did you grow up reading the books? I think almost everyone my age read at least one Goosebumps book. There was a little something for everyone – spiders, ghosts, monster neighbors, witches, and, of course, mummies! My love of the spooky and science fiction definitely started early, and The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb was one of my favorite Goosebumps stories. This nerdy kid thought Egyptian mythology was fascinating – still do!

So I knew right away that I wanted my Goosebumps post to highlight mummies! I’ve been experimenting with truffles lately, so I decided to give pumpkin truffles a try and I am so glad I did. YUM! They are creamy on the inside with the perfect kick of spice from the seasonings and ginger snaps and the outside is delicious vanilla almond bark. If you have any nut allergies though, this can easily be replaced with white chocolate. Almond bark is just my go-to for its rich flavor.

The best part? The cute mummy truffle decor is basically made by making a mess. It’s perfect for letting kids help. You can use a spoon to drizzle the remaining almond bark over the truffles or you can add to a piping bag like I did. I switched the tips half way through – using a thicker line tips first and then a small round one at the end. The only tricky party is the black eyes so unless you want black frosting everywhere, I wouldn’t have the kids help with that part.
