Zombie Candy Cups filled with blood stained candy bones or hot and spicy blood red candies make ghoulish treats for Halloween.
Whether you are into zombies or not, these creepy, yet cute, Zombie Candy Cups would make a fun treat for a Halloween or zombie themed party.
I personally don’t have a fascination with zombies and haven’t watched too many movies or television shows featuring the half dead, brain eating creatures. I prefer to watch gorgeous vampires do their thing on the big screen. HaHaHa!
I do have to admit though, that I am into having zombies in my house at Halloween. There’s a blood stained, one armed zombie in my kitchen right now.
My house is completely decked out for Halloween already. I have some blogging friends coming to see me this weekend so I had to decorate early this year. I am so excited to host these ladies during my favorite holiday of the year. They’ve been reading about my over-the-top Halloween parties for years and now they get to see our elaborate decorations in person.
Unlike most years where we decorate the entire house with a theme, this year we chose to decorate every room using a different theme. Some rooms are elegantly decorated while the kitchen is a blood fest.
There are bloody body parts all over. Gross, right? I still can’t believe I do this to my house every year. I’m so much more into cute than creepy, but for some reason at Halloween I can totally get into gory decorations. I even enjoy making creepy snacks and treats for the holiday too.
In the past I have always displayed all of the desserts for our party on one big display. This year I am playing around with the idea of having desserts displayed in each room. The desserts will match the theme of the room so these Zombie Candy Cups will be in the kitchen.
I think my guests are going to go nuts over these edible cups.
They are super easy to make using a vibrant green candy melts, vibrant green candy melts, and bloodshot candy eyes. The best part about this project is that the messier you are while decorating, the better.
