I’m a little behind on the Halloween treats, so today my sweet friend Samantha, of Flour de Lis is here to show you how to make these easy and adorable zombie cookies!
I am not sure if you have noticed, but zombies ARE actually taking over the world. I mean they are everywhere! TV shows, movies, games, 5k’s, there are survival guides and bubble gum and I am pretty sure last time I drove through Oregon, one of them pumped my gas! On a side note, I always forget that it’s illegal to pump your own gas in Oregon and I always get out the car and then I have to pretend that I was going inside all awkwardly, so I buy junk food to make myself feel better ANYWAY…. These creepy brain suckers are no longer hiding out until Halloween, they are moving into everyday life. So I am going to share with you some easy, peasy, kid-friendly zombie cookies. You can make them for Halloween if you want or for a birthday party or just for fun treat for your favorite zombie fan.
You can mix up your favorite batch of cookie dough for these cookies. I used this Wilton skull cutter but I am sure they would look just as good with any of these.
- 20 second (flood icing) in your favorite zombie shade. I used equal parts leaf green and ivory for the darker one and about 5 to 1 ivory and leaf green for the lighter one.
- Red, black, white and any other colors of details icing.
Grab a cookie and use one of the green zombie colors to outline and flood. I use only one consistency to outline and flood my cookies, but if you use a different method just follow your own process.
Outline and fill until all the cookies are done. I let them set for about 20 minutes, so they have a little crust, but the detail icing can still sink in a little. Or if you use a heat gun, just give each cookie a quick 4-5 second wave of that little magic and move right along.
For these, I just gave each cookie one good eye and one missing eye. For the good eye, squeeze out a good size round dollop of white icing and then add a smaller round dollop of another color ( I had some left over icing from another batch, so here I have purple, blue, brown and gold).
Opposite the good eye, make an eye size X with red detail icing. The mouth is just as easy, a simple black horizontal line and a few little vertical lines and voila!I am thinking these will be a perfect little snack for a little zombie fanboy I know!
