First we had marshmallow ghosts. Then we had marshmallow skeletons. And now…. MARSHMALLOW ZOMBIES! Marshmallows sure are perfect for Halloween, aren’t they? UPDATE in 2017: These zombie marshmallows have been one of my most popular blog posts. Don’t miss out on all the other zombie food on my blog!
Just like their predecessors, these are super-easy to make.
how to make zombie marshmallows
you will need:*
- lollipop sticks
- large confetti sprinkles
- black and red food coloring pens
- light corn syrup
*Find the sprinkles and lollipop sticks in the craft store. You can probably find food coloring pens there, too, but I prefer Americolor Gourmet Writers.
what to do:
Lay a marshmallow on its side. Put a dab of corn syrup on the back of a confetti sprinkle with the toothpick and stick on the marshmallows where you want eyes (note some of my zombies only have one eye). Use the markers to draw dots, “x”s, mouths, eyes, blood, whatever you want. Insert a lollipop stick (if you want, see below without stick). You may need to let the corn syrup dry for a couple hours to get the sprinkles to adhere securely.
