Hi friends! After having fun decorating Jack O’Lantern Cupcakes with the grandkids last week, I thought I’d try Zombie Cookies.
Whew! A whole lot of learning happened while making these Zombie cookies. Those fruit roll-ups were almost the death of me. On the positive side, I learned a LOT!
The process itself is fairly straightforward. The cookies are dipped in candy melts, wrapped in fruit roll up strips, then decorated with candy eyes and some piping gel. Sounds easy enough doesn’t it? I blame Pinterest. Everything looks easy, but sometimes, not so much! I couldn’t get the fruit roll ups to stick to the cookies. They kept slipping off. There must be a trick to it, but I couldn’t figure it out. I ended up tacking them down with a bit of extra candy melts. It worked, but it wasn’t pretty.
This guy looks like I feel. I would do this again when the grandkids are older. It was too hard for them to help decorate but they did giggle at the bloodshot eyes, so, I guess it’s a win!

I always say “Life isn’t perfect, but it should always be delicious!” These cookies are FAR from perfect, but they were delicious! I’m inspired to keep trying different characters. Pinterest certainly has a lot of good ones. I just won’t try wrapped ones next time!
