Zombie Feet Cookies

by Marie

Here's some ghoulishly good Zombie Feet Cookies which have a marbled green and yellow fondant 'skin' covered in festering sores. Eat the body parts before the Zombies feast on you!

A ghastly but great sweet treat for Halloween and Zombie themed parties are these gross looking Zombie Feet Cookies which will really get your guests spooked. Bet you didn't think of making these with a Foot Cookie Cutter which you can get from Aamzon.

Luckily the feet taste a whole lot nicer than they look because they're vanilla cookies topped with sweet fondant icing. They're a really fun project for which you use ready to roll icing which makes assembling the gruesome feet an easy task.

A Halloween Feet Treat!

If you're hosting a Halloween party or a birthday party with zombies or monsters as the theme, here's some truly foul looking Zombie Feet Cookies which are perfect for grossing out your guests.

Thankfully the feet are made with a vanilla cookie base and some sweet fondant icing as topping. They might look gruesome but they taste divine. They're lots of fun to make. If you have any aspiring child cooks, let them join in by squashing and mixing the green and yellow Zombie skin together - it's just like play doh but safe to eat.

Zombie Feet Cookies

Ghastly Zombie Feet which look gross but are delicious to eat! Just make sure you bite into these scabby and rotten feet before they bite into you!

Prep time 30 min  -  Total time 75 min
Ingredients for 20 servings
113g unsalted butter  • 113g caster sugar  • 1 beaten egg  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract  • 225g plain flour  • Ready to roll Fondant Icing  • Apricot Jam - small amount for adding fondant.

1: Make the Zombie Feet Cookie Dough

1: Make the Zombie Feet Cookie Dough

Place your softened butter and sugar into a big mixing bowl and combine the ingredients with a hand or electric whisk. Add in 1 egg and your vanilla extract and mix everything together. Gradually add the plain flour into the bowl and mix this in as well.

Once everything is well mixed, use your hands to push all the dough mix into a large ball of dough. Cover this in plastic food wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 mins.

2: Cut out and Bake the Zombie Feet

2: Cut out and Bake the Zombie Feet

Roll out the vanilla cookie dough. If you don't have enough work surface to roll the dough in one go, just roll out half to start with. I like quite thin cookies at about 5mm thickness. Whatever size you opt for is pretty much the size they will be once cooked.

Cut out your Zombie Feet and place them onto lightly floured baking trays. Bake on Gas 4 (350°F / 177°C) for around 10-12 mins. When the cookies are ready, they should be a nice golden brown. Allow the feet to cool down on cooling racks.

3: Making Marbled Fondant for Zombie Skin

I prefer ready to roll fondant icing like Regal-Ice which you can buy in a wide range of colors and it's easy to use. It's pretty much like edible play doh. Great fun for kids and grown ups too!

Ready to roll fondant icing is sticky - to make it easier to work with, prime your work surface and your hands with a generous sprinkling of confectioners' sugar or Icing sugar as we call it in the UK. Take a fist-sized amount of yellow icing and a fist-sized amount of green icing. Push these colors together into a ball and squeeze and shape the ball shape until you get a nice mix of green and yellow.

Roll the fondant out to around 5mm and you should have a great marbled effect of green and yellow fondant. Cut out enough feet to match the amount of cookies that you have.

4: Adding the Fondant to the Cookies

Warm a couple of tablespoons of apricot jam in a small microwave bowl for a short blast of 10 seconds or until just warm.

Spread a small amount of jam over a foot cookie using a teaspoon. Pick up a yellow and green fondant foot with a blunt knife underneath and place it over the top of the cookie. Press the fondant down gently into place.

5: Making Sharp Yellow Zombie Toenails

Roll out a tiny amount of yellow fondant icing. Use a sharp knife to cut some small triangular shapes out to stick on to your cookies as toenails. To stick these on, just dab a tiny bit of water where you want the toenail to go and press it on.

6: Adding Sore Bloody Scabs

You could just leave the zombie feet cookies as they are. Even better is to add on some bloody open sores with a ring of yellow pus around. That is sure to really gross your guests out!

Roll out some yellow fondant. Take a tiny bit of red (about the size of your smallest fingertip) and press into the yellow fondant. Make enough red blobs of fondant for all the cookies you need to decorate. Make sure that you have a nice gap of yellow fondant around each bit of red. Dust a little confectioner's sugar on and roll lightly over the top.

You now have some sores which you can cut out with a knife. Cut out the red bits with a little of yellow surrounding it. Stick these to your feet using a small amount of water.

7: Rotting Black Skin Detail

Another optional part is to add in some rotting black areas of skin onto your feet. I achieved this look by using a small, clean paintbrush to paint on some black icing from a ready-made squeezy tube. You could also roll out some very thin sausages of black fondant icing and press into your cookies using water to 'glue' them in place.

Have fun making some really gross Zombie Feet Cookies - yum!

What about trying other zombie body parts as cookies @samsara? How cool would that be to have a platter of zombie body bits cookies on a plate :)

I agree, Kinworm, that kids love yucky themes. These Zombie feet cookies fit the bill for those that love gross stuff.

Thanks Katie :) These are definitely fun for kids to make some gross monster or zombie feet - most young kids think yucky themes are fun.
