Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Step 3

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

Step 5

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined.

Step 6

Divide the cookie dough into two equal portions. Set one portion aside.

Step 7

Add red food coloring to the other portion of cookie dough, a few drops at a time, until the desired gruesome color is achieved. Mix until the color is evenly distributed.

Step 8

To create the cookies, take a small amount of the plain cookie dough and roll it into a ball. Flatten it slightly and place it on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 9

Take a small amount of the red-colored dough and shape it into a rough, irregular shape resembling a blood-soaked ghoul or zombie. Place it on top of the plain cookie dough, pressing gently to adhere them together.

Step 10

Repeat the process with the remaining dough, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.

Step 11

Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set and the centers are slightly soft.

Step 12

While the cookies are baking, prepare the edible blood splatters. In a small bowl, mix together the corn syrup, red food coloring, and cocoa powder until well combined.

Step 13

Once the cookies are baked and cooled for a few minutes, use a spoon or a pastry brush to splatter the edible blood mixture onto the cookies, creating gruesome splatters and drips.

Step 14

Immediately press edible candy eyeballs or gummy eyeballs onto the cookies to complete the ghoulish look.

Step 15

Allow the cookies to cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

Step 16

Serve George A. Romero's Gruesome Ghoul Cookies and immerse yourself in the horror-themed delight of these eerie treats. They're perfect for horror movie marathons or Halloween gatherings!
