Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Light Mayonnaise

Arrange ”mummies” on prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake 18 to 20 minutes until bottoms are golden. Cool 2 minutes on wire rack; remove cookies from sheets and cool completely.
  4. Microwave white chocolate in microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; heat until melted and stir until smooth. Dip tops of cookies in white chocolate; arrange on wire rack set over aluminum foil to catch excess chocolate. Make ”bandage marks” on the body using toothpick. Add morsels for ”eyes”. Cool completely before serving.

TIP: To make coffin, “glue” long melba toasts together with additional melted white chocolate, cutting the toasts to fit short ends.
