Easy Zombie Cookies with Flour de Lis

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!

Blog breakI 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.

Zombie Cookie CuttersOnce your cookies are baked and cooled, here is what you’ll need:

  • 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.

Zombie FloodOutline 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.

Zombies FloodedFor 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!Easy Zombie CookiesI am thinking these will be a perfect little snack for a little zombie fanboy I know!
