October is one of my favorite months because it’s packed full of holidays and events including the season premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead. To celebrate I have teamed up with Dylan’s Candy Bar to bring you this zombie-themed blog post as well as a DIY zombie cookie project using #2 above: Zombie Dance Party Cookie Kit!
Dylan’s specializes in all kinds of fun themed candy and treats, but this DIY zombie cookie making kit is perfect for your upcoming Halloween party or even your Walking Dead season finale soiree. I highly recommend buying some edible googly eyes as well. You can easily using frosting to create the eyes, but I feel like the store bought ones took it over the top.

For those of you unfamiliar with Dylan’s Candy Bar, they now have four locations: 2 in NY, 1 in Miami, and a 4th here in Los Angeles! The brand was created in 2001 by boss lady and tastemaker Dylan Lauren, the daughter of legendary fashion designer Ralph Lauren. Her flagship store in New York City is one of the largest candy shops in the world and has remained on the top 10 list of NYC tourist attractions since its inception, welcoming over 2.5 million visitors per year.
Dylan’s vision was to merge together “the worlds of art, fashion and pop culture with candy” to create a confectionary emporium that “transports its guests to a modern day version of Willy Wonka’s factory the moment they enter. Its pop-art installations such as the iconic over-sized lollipop tree, candy cane columns, dripping chocolate shelves, kaleidoscopic candy wallpaper and candy-embedded staircases embody the pinnacle of “retail-tainment”. The ultra-sensory experience is enhanced with delectable smells, a candy timeline and a vast milieu of candy songs and commercials, giving its customers not just a sugar high but a sweet lasting euphoria.”
