Make Your Own Walking Dead Cookies

If you're already planning your party for The Walking Dead Season 3's return in February or are looking for something different to bring to your family's Christmas party, we have a photos and step-by-step instructions on how to make your own Walking Dead cookies.

This recipe comes from Not Your Momma's Cookie and, if you recognize the design, that's because it's based on The Walking Dead vinyl figures from Funko. Based on the directions they provided, it should be pretty easy for someone to create their own Daryl Dixon or zombie cookies as well. Take a look at the recipe below and be sure to send us an email if you make your own batch of cookies. We'll be sure to feature anyone who makes cookies featuring other characters from The Walking Dead.

THE WALKING DEAD COOKIES from Not Your Momma's Cookie

  • Custom cut sugar cookies
  • Black icing, outline and flood
  • Brown icing, outline and flood
  • Skin colored icing to match Rick’s skin tone, outline and flood (Wilton’s copper food coloring is great for making light colored skin tones)
  • Yellow-y/tan icing, outline and flood
  • Gold luster dust
  • Vodka
  • Small paintbrush
  • Brown food writer pen
  • Couplers, pastry bags, #2 and #1 tips

1. Outline Rick’s hat and pants with the brown icing using a #2 tip (I used a #2 tip for all of the initial outlining). Flood immediately with brown icing.

2. Outline and flood Rick’s white with the yellow-y/tan icing.

3. Outline and flood Rick’s face and arms with the skin colored icing.

4. Outline and flood Rick’s shoes, gun, and belt with the black icing. Allow cookie to dry for several hours.

5. Add additional details:

  • Re-outline cookie with all colors with a #1 tip
  • Add belt buckle with yellow-y/tan icing with a #1 tip
  • Add finger lines and a cute button nose with skin colored icing and a #1 tip
  • Add gun details with black icing and a #1 tip
  • Add stars on Rick’s hat and shirt with the yellow-y/tan icing
  • Rick’s eyes with black icing

6. I wanted a couple more hours and then painted the gold luster dust mixed with vodka on Rick’s belt buckle and stars. I also added his grumpy eyebrows with a brown food writer.
