Surprise Santa this year with a plate of zombie snowman sugar cookies!
I have seen so many cute snowman cookies for the holidays this year on Pinterest... SO many.
I love inviting a bunch of my friends and family over to bake and decorate holiday cookies with me! But it seems that we make and decorate the same type of cute snowman cookies year after year – and they've become more interested in eating cookies than decorating them!
So this year I decided to mix it up and zombify ours.
Being fans of the popular zombie movies and TV shows, this idea was just the ticket to getting everyone excited about decorating cookies!
Grab a pouch of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix, the ingredients for the mix, and the fun candy and sprinkles you’ll need to decorate these super cool snow dudes.
Mix the dough according to the package instructions. Try not to eat it. I know, it’s hard.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut out into snowman shapes.
Bake at 375ºF for about 7 to 9 minutes. This will make your house smell so delish!
Let the cookies cool completely. This is the hardest part because you have to play watchdog and make sure no one steals them. Then squeeze icing on top of the cookies.
While the icing is still wet, top the cookie with candy eyes and red hots. For a fuzzy top hat, I added black sugar sprinkles on some of the cookies.
Let the cookies dry for about four hours or overnight. Again, you have to guard these so no one eats them. Then zombify your cookies by decorating them with Fruit Roll Up strips and edible markers. I colored the rest of the top hats using a black edible marker – super easy!
These zombie snowman cookies are the perfect “frost bites” – they'll have your friends and family talking about your spin on these traditional treats!
