Create a fun crescent moon snack board filled with mummy snacks and crescent moon pizzas. This board is great for Halloween or mummy movies!
Snack boards are a fun way to make a movie night or holiday extra special. But they always seem so elaborate and time-consuming. I love to create fun boards that are easy. Usually, that involves sticking to a specific theme. These mummy snacks and crescent moon pizzas are quick and simple to create. They are perfect for Halloween or a themed movie night.
I made my crescent moon snack board to celebrate the premiere of Marvel’s Moon Knight on Disney Plus. Moon Knight is a character from Marvel Comics that was given supernatural abilities by an Egyptian moon god. His costume is reminiscent of an Egyptian mummy and his signature weapon is two crescent moon-shaped blades. The crescent weapons and mummy aspects served as the inspiration for the snacks on this Moon Knight board. I made Oreo mummies, pretzel mummies, and crescent moon pizzas and arranged them with other snacks in the shape of a crescent moon.
Creating the Mummy Snacks and Crescent Pizzas
Oreo Mummy Snacks
Mummy Oreos are such a simple way to great a fun treat. These cookies are excellent for Halloween. But they are also a fun snack to accompany a lesson on mummies and Ancient Egypt. Or while watching a mummy movie or show. Like Moon Knight!
- Cookie Icing
- Candy Eyes
How To Make Mummy Oreos
Simply arrange several Oreos in rows on parchment paper. Then drizzle some icing in a zig-zag motion over the Oreos. I bought a bag of cookie icing at the grocery store to save time. All I needed to do was cut the tip off the icing pouch and squeeze the icing over the cookies. If you don’t have a pouch of cookie icing, warming regular icing or melting white candies works just as well. The zig-zag icing patterns create the look of a wrapped mummy. For a little extra fun, add two candy eyes to each cookie.
Pretzel Mummy Snacks
Mummy pretzel sticks are another fun treat. They are the perfect combination of sweet and salty.
- Pretzel Rods
- Melted Marshmallows (or chocolate)
- Cookie Icing
- Candy Eyes
How to Make Mummy Pretzels
Melt a cup of marshmallows in the microwave. Simply heat the marshmallows in 30-second increments until they are melted. You could also substitute marshmallows for chocolate or candy melts. Dip the pretzel rods into the melted marshmallow or chocolate. Then, lay the pretzels on a piece of parchment paper. Next, squeeze out the cookie icing in a zig-zag pattern over the pretzels. Like with the Oreos, if you don’t have cookie icing use heated regular icing or melted white candy. Add eyes to the mummy pretzels for a little added fun too.
Crescent Moon Pizzas
Crescent moon pizzas are fun savory snacks. They are full of pizza flavor but fit in your hands without a lot of mess. These moon-shaped snacks are the perfect addition to any snack board. I added them to my Moon Knight board because they look similar to his crescent weapons.
- Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- Marinara sauce
- Mozzarella cheese
- Melted garlic butter
How to Make Cresent Moon Pizzas
Open a can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. On a sheet of parchment paper, separate the rolls out. Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce in the center of each roll. Next, slice mozzarella cheese and pepperoni into thin strips. Place two strips of cheese and three strips of pepperoni at the widest end of each roll. Then roll the cheese and pepperoni up inside the rolls. Pull and curve the ends of each Crescent Roll to ensure they bake in the shape of crescent moons.
Arrange the crescent moon pizzas on a non-stick baking sheet. In a small ramekin, heat two tablespoons of butter. Stir a teaspoon of fresh or powdered garlic into the melted butter. Using a silicone baking brush, brush the garlic butter over each pizza. Top the pizzas off with a sprinkle of dried Parsley. Then bake according to the Pillsbury Crescent Roll package’s directions.
Moon Knight Snack Board
Now that all of the snacks are prepared, let’s make a crescent moon snack board! My snack board is for the Moon Knight premiere on Disney Plus. But this board would be great for a variety of themed parties or movie nights!
Moon Knight Snack Board Ingredients + Supplies
- Mummy Oreos
- Mummy Pretzels
- Black licorice
- Apple slices
- Crescent moon pizzas
- Round wooden (food safe) serving platter or cutting board
Create a Crescent Moon Snack Board
Start this crescent moon snack board by arranging the black licorice to form half of a crescent moon. The tip of the moon should be at the top-center of the board. Follow the outer curve of the board with licorice. Then form the inner curve of the moon. Remember, to stop the licorice just below the middle of the board.
Next, fill in the top half of the crescent moon with the Oreo mummy snacks. Then, fill the bottom half of the crescent with apple slices. Fill in any gaps with more black licorice.
Form the bottom half of the crescent moon with the crescent pizzas. Arrange a row of pizzas following the curve of the board. Then create the inside row. Stack the rest of the pizzas to fill in any gaps.
Since the Oreo mummy snacks, apples, and crescent moon pizzas only take up half of the board, arrange the pretzel mummies outside of the moon. The long pretzels fill the space, but are still on theme!
Serve this fun snack board for a Halloween party or mummy movie night.
