When the hubs is watching The Walking Dead, I just walk by with hands in my ears, grab what I need and leave the room!
They are the only darn things...other than roaches that would keep me awake all night and make me feel like I was 12 years all all over again!
Needless to say, this particular snack will be the first and last Zombie related of my career as a blogger or heck..Homemaker! I just bought this bag of candy to give out to kids for Halloween and figured..well...why not! Also I wanted to use this delicious Chocolate Strawberry Spread I found at World Market a few days ago.
I've asked my followers on FB yesterday about the color of zombie skin! The majority said it was Ash in color..and believe me I tried to please them with that color but boy! it was tough!
The next best thing was to give my zombie flesh a little bit of radioactive signs of decomposition and that's why it ended up being greenish-black! What do you think.
Honestly I won't stand close enough to a zombie to see what color his/her/it skin is...it might as well be pink for all I care..I would be running like a maniac away as fast as I can!
There you go my friends, that's my zombie story of the season! These are very tasty despite the appearance. I hope you get to enjoy them with No Living Dead Around!, lol Have a beautiful day and remember everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love! (well...I'm not quite sure about real zombie skin, but at least this one is)
Zombie Skin Halloween Muddy Buddies Recipe
3 Cups Special K Vanilla Almond Ceral (looks like skin flakes to me)
3/4 Chocolate Strawberry Spread (Nutella would do just fine)
2 TBSP Honey Margarine (butter is ok too)
2 TBSP Strawberry Jelly (optional )
1/4 Cup Salted Peanuts
1 1/2 Cups Powder Sugar
1 Bag Gummy Zombie Body Parts
1 Large Zip Lock Bag
Black, Green and Red food colorant (optional)
In a big mixing bowl, place your cereal. Set aside.
In a microwave proof container melt your spread of choice, margarine and jelly, in intervals of 30-45 seconds. Once this mix is melted, add a drop or two of your black food coloring. Mix well. Pour this mix on your cereal bowl. Mix gently not to break the flakes.
Filled up your zip lock bag with the powdered sugar. Add the coated cereal flakes and shake. I added mine in two batches to get a better coverage.
On a separate small bowl, add your salted peanuts and pour a couple drops of green food colorant on them.
Coat them well and add this mix to your sugar coated cereal flakes and shake again. The colorant will come off of the peanuts but it will spot the sugar coated flakes to give it the zombie radiated skin effect.
At the end you will be able to see a mix of black and green...to serve and make it even creepier...you could add some drops of red food colorant to suggest blood...yucks!
Before serving, add the gummy zombie body parts. Serve, Devour and Enjoy!
