My annual Halloween bash wouldn’t be the same without the now famous Mummy Man. When kids first see Mummy Man, they wonder if he’s edible. I assure them, and we hack off a foot or an arm with some crackers.
— Rebecca Eremich, Barberton, Ohio
- 2 port wine cheese logs 12 ounces each
- 1 package 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 tablespoon 2% milk
- 2 whole peppercorns
- 1 pimiento strip
Cut the cheese logs into pieces for mummy's head, body, arms and legs; arrange on a serving plate.
In small bowl, beat cream cheese and milk. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert basket weave tip #47. Pipe rows across the mummy, creating bandages. Add peppercorns for eyes and pimiento strip for mouth. Chill until serving.
