Mummy Carrot Muffins

I really enjoy making seasonal dishes! Whether its a citrus summer salad, fall chili, or an easter roast, I love festive recipes. With the holidays fast approaching I know we’ll all be baking and bastering our delicious meals! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to get creative with, and the fun doesn’t stop with the costumes or decorations. Celebrating halloween through food is incredibly fun for all ages. These carrot muffins are probably some of the easiest to make sweet treats I’ve made and I highly recommend getting help from all your little sous chefs. Whether your family decides to add them to breakfast, have them as a snack, or bring them to a socially distanced halloween party, they’ll be a recipe hit!

Ingredients:

 

Muffins

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

Cream Cheese Icing

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 4 once softened cream cheese

Mummy Eyes

  • Mini marshmallows
  • Mini chocolate chips

   

Steps:

In a large mixing bowl mix together baking soda, cinnamon, salt, sugar, and flour. Add in eggs, vanilla, and oil. Mix until all ingredients are well combined. Should feel very dry similar to a cookie mix. Slowly fold in carrots. Carrots will add moisture creating a softer batter.

Either grease or paper line a muffin tin. Fill muffin molds to 2/3 full. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and bake for 20-25 minutes.

While the muffins bake I like to make this easy to mix cream cheese icing and my version of googly eyes. Mix vanilla, powdered sugar, and cream cheese together until ingredients seem well combined. I like using a pipping bag and tip to accurately decorate mummy wraps. Once my pipping bag is filled with the icing, I move on to the eyes. On a plate place a mini marshmallow. Take a mini chocolate chip, and with the pointed side down pierce the marshmallow slightly pushing the chip in. I make a bunch ahead of time to have them ready when its time to decorate.

                     

Once muffins are done baking, let cool for almost 30 minutes before decorating.

I don’t have a real set technique to creating the mummies, but whether you pipe diagonally or side to side, Im sure they’ll be uniquely yours! I do like to leave a bit of space for the eyes.

Enjoy!

  1. What a unique way to enjoy eating carrot muffins. I’m betting my kids will enjoy gobbling down a mummy carrot muffin over actually eating just a carrot muffin. I’ll have to give your recipe idea at try for some Halloween fun.

  2. Those turned out great. I love making Halloween recipes. They’re my favorite. I think my kids would love to make these with me too.
