This is a repost by reader request. There are actually two posts today, and they will cover both the question
1. What's a truly terrifying dessert I can make with the kids? and
2. How can I enjoy being a pyromaniac in plain sight with no one the wiser?
Southern Living showed up in my mailbox last week with these guys. I know. You're in love. I was too. And I thought I could pull this off.
But get the following together:
1. Mini marshmallows
2. White chocolate
3. Milano Black and White Cookies from Pepperidge Farms
4. Peanut M&M's
5. Um, zombie eye sprinkles. You don't have those? We do. The recipe actually says to put a mini chocolate chip on the end of a mini marshmallow. If you don't have zombie eye sprinkles on hand, My God, what do YOUR gingerbread men look like???
By the way, do NOT expect the end result to look like this. Ours is sorta post apocalyptic.
Anyway, melt the white chocolate in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds at a shot. Remember, chocolate holds its shape, so check and stir it often.
Spread some of the melted chocolate on a cookie and use mini marshmallows as fleece.
This isn't going well.
Set the marshmallow covered cookie on four M&M's covered in white chocolate as hooves.
Have some more wine, your sheep will start to look better.
And using more melted chocolate as the glue, make the face, and stick it to the body. Repeat. Chill.
Zombie undead sheep.
Zombie eyes in a tube.
We used some sprinkles for the grass, laughed our butts off, licked our fingers a lot, and now have a strange craving for Serta mattresses...
I had fun creating these, It's also fun to make fun of the other people's sheep and how they are losing limbs, how they are being decapitated, and how they are shedding. Mostly, summarizing our construction problems, but we got it right at the end.
