A couple of years ago I got this awesome cookie cutter/press and made “gingerdead men.” I gave them away at Christmas along with an irreverent holiday card (I’ll spare you those details). I posted about them here.
Last year, while I was a little bit (okay, a lot) obsessed with The Walking Dead, I used the same gingerdead cutter/press and took it a step further.

Walking Dead Gingerdead Men

Sadly, I’m the only person in my house who watches The Walking Dead, but if I had a Season 4 premiere party (on October 13! Are you ready?), I would make these Walking Dead gingerdead men cookies. I think they’d also be fun for a Halloween party. Even the traditional gingerdead men would be perfect for Halloween. Chocolate flavored cookies would look even more dramatic.

What do you think? Too much gore for a holiday cookie? (But just right for Halloween, right?) What snacks do you like to share at Halloween parties (or awesome zombie program premieres)?
