Halloween Mississippi Mud Pie Graveyard with Marshmallow zombies
Halloween is upon us! I had so many different ideas this year but decided to go with this Mississippi mud pie graveyard with Marshmallow zombies. The mud pie is the perfect base for a zombie graveyard, while also being absolutely delicious. For our zombies we are using coloured icing to decorate the marshmallows, some walnuts and more coloured icing to make zombie brains. I also covered the Mississippi mud pie graveyard with some melted marshmallows to make it look even spookier. The finishing touches are a few drops of strawberry sauce and some leftover bourbon biscuits to serve as tombstones.
Once you’ve shown off your mud pie you can slice it up in brownie-size treats for everyone!
I created a few different types of zombies as well but you can get as creative as you want. The three zombies I made were:
- scratched face: use a toothpick to carve lines into the marshmallow. Dip the toothpick in strawberry sauce or food colouring and spread it into the scratches.
- strawberry sauce covered head: once you have painted a face on the marshmallow using coloured icing you can dip the ‘head’ into strawberry sauce or red food colouring
- walnuts brains and strawberry sauce covered head: same as above, but also draw some fine lines of icing on top of a walnut to make it look like brains and place it on top of the strawberry sauce covered head
