DIY Zombie Gingerbread Halloween House
The Haunted House Cookie Cutter Kit from Sweet Creations by Good Cook helped the making and baking of the Zombie Gingerbread Halloween Haunted House go a lot smoother. This kit includes a recipe for the dough, three cookie cutters, and two rollers and stamps to make spooky imprints on your house.
The recipe was a pretty simple gingerbread recipe and surprisingly I had everything but molasses on hand! I followed the instructions and I had enough to make all the pieces, but they were pretty thin.
For decorations, I picked up a variety of candy, like Milky Ways, Hershey Bars, M&Ms, Candy Corn, and decorating icing to attach everything to the house. Another ingredient we used, that wasn’t edible, was super glue.
We were opting to not “eat” this Zombie Gingerbread Halloween House and well, super glue held everything together better than our attempts with decorating icing, which we used for decor.
Our Zombie Gingerbread Halloween House was on fire and zombies were closing in on “Daryl”. One of my favorite things to make was my little Milky Way Bar “Coffin” with the zombie coming out.
We used Marzipan Almond Candy Dough for the zombie and gravestones and boards on the window. That candy can make so many different things! For the Caution Tape, we used strips of yellow duck tape. We weren’t sure the Marzipan would hold in long thin strips for that.
