What type of cheese to use for halloween mummy appetizers

Mini Babybel cheese wheels are the ideal bite-size choice.  The size works well and they hold shape for wrapping, then melt slightly when baked into soft and gooey morsels. These classic cheese wheels with the pull-off wax were a favorite growing up. It’s 100% real natural cheese and also a good source of protein.

Just a few simple steps needed to make puff pastry mummies

These puff pastry mummies won’t be using the wax, which is a common way to decorate cheese wheels. Instead, wrap them in thin slices of puff pastry sheets to create a wrapped mummy effect. Cutout black olives work perfect for the inset eyes. Bake until golden, and the cheese is slightly gooey inside.

Pro tip: Brush the wrapped cheese wheels with egg white before baking. This helps enhance that classic golden glow of puff pasty.

These Halloween Puff Pastry Mummy Cheese Wheels will be a fun project for the entire family and festive addition to your Halloween appetizer menu. If you’re looking for more Halloween themed appetizers, you’ll love these Black Bean Hummus Monsters.

  • 8 Mini Babybel® cheese wheels
  • 16 black olives
  • 1 sheet puff pastry dough, thawed
  • 1 egg white


  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Cut small slices off of rounded tips of black olives to create eyes. Remaining portions will be unused. Discard wax from cheese wheels and place two eyes on each.
  • Cut puff pastry sheet in half, then cut into thin ⅛-inch wide strips. Wrap strips around cheese wheels in overlapping patterns, keeping eyes slightly exposed. Lightly brush dough with egg white.
  • Please on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake 12 minutes, or until dough is golden brown. Slice off any bits of cheese that have oozed out, serve immediately.


Brushing with egg whites helps creates a nice sheen and golden brown.
