Yummy Mummy Cheese Spread Recipe

My annual Halloween bash wouldn't be the same without the now famous Mummy Man. When kids first see Mummy Man, they wonder if they can actually eat him. I assure them they can, and we hack off a foot or an arm with some crackers. —Rebecca Eremich, Barberton, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 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


  • 1. Cut cheese logs into pieces for mummy's head, body, arms and legs; arrange on a serving plate.
  • 2. 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. Yield: 1 cheese log.

"The port wine cheese logs are not available ANYWHERE, any more. I even went on line to find a store in Washington state that sold them. Not available. so I bought the round cheddar logs which are still available and after waiting until they were room temperature, shaped them into logs. They are yellow, not pink though."

"This turned out super cute and recieved lots of compliments. Unfortunately the grocery store I went to said they only sell cheese logs around Thanksgiving and Christmas. I let a cheese ball sit out for a bit to get soft then shaped it into legs, arms, the body and head and it worked just fine. I cut a tiny smile out of a slice of cheese for the mouth instead of using the pimiento."
