Ingredients
  

Cookie Base

  • 275 g flour
  • 100 g sugar
  • 100 g Butter
  • 1 medium Egg
  • 1 drop Vanilla Extract optional

Fake Blood

  • 50 g Icing Sugar
  • 2 tsp water
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 drop Flavouring
  • Food Colouring - Red, Green, Black

Miniature Brains

  • Walnut Halves
  • Fake Blood

Teeth

  • White Fondant
  • Edible Black Pen
  • Fake Blood

Instructions
 

Cookie Base

  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, form a ball and place into the fridge for 30 min. Once cooled down, cut into desired shapes and bake for 10 min on 190°C.

Fake Blood

  • Mix all ingredients together and cover up until needed, as the 'blood' icing will otherwise dry out. For a more shiny result, leave out the cocoa.

Miniature Brains

  • Dip the walnut halves into the fake blood until fully covered. Place on the side for a minute to let any excess drip off.

Teeth

  • Shape the white fondant into little balls. Cut into one side with a knife to split the ball and press the back of the knife into the other side of the ball to make a cross. Place in the fridge for a few minutes for the fondant to dry out. When hard, paint the roots of the teeth black and dip into fake blood icing.

Finally..

  • Pick a frosting of your choice to cover the cookies (I simply whipped up some cream cheese with a bit of icing sugar) and place brains and teeth on top. Finally sprinkle some of the leftover fake blood over the cookies to create a blood splattered effect.
