This Halloween, I wanted to try doing something fun using Glutino’s animal crackers. I’m not sure how much they’ll appreciate my creativity, but this post definitely screams – me. I mean, I love zombies. And zombie-related humor. So, here we go folks. Here’s my ZOMBIE ANIMAL CRACKERS ZOO!
In order to make the zombie animals, I grabbed some Glutino animal crackers in original flavor and some red dye that is labeled gluten free. While I typically like using natural food dyes, they’re typically more wet and lighter in color than what I wanted to achieve. With toothpicks, I applied the dye to the eyes and mouth areas of the animal crackers to create a zombie-like appearance.
And what do zombie zoo animals eat? Well, I guess zombie animals would eat other animals, right? I broke a few animal crackers in two and applied blood to the “open wounds.” I laid the animals flat on top of a brownie and propped up the zombies using toothpicks inserted into the brownie.
Here’s a closer look at the animal crackers. While it may not be The Walking Dead-level of gratuitous blood and violence, it was just enough to make people laugh and enjoy the ghoulish-ness of the season.
