Zombie Eyeball Lollipops

Zombie Eyeball Pops..Bloodshot Eyeballs Lollipops..whatever you call them, they're Gross! Kinda like the Zombies themselves.

Speaking of Zombies..are you a "Walking Dead" fan? I probably would have been when I was younger..but I just can't handle the gross factor!

Let me take you back to 2012.
"The Walking Dead" had already been filming in Senoia for quite some time. Soo.. 
My hubby and I had spent the evening with family at his sister's house, and as we were heading home we passed through the town's center. I saw that "The Walking Dead" was filming and I wanted to stop and watch along with a few others that had already gathered.

At that time, we had never even seen the show. It was just kinda neat to see them filming. Then several people crossed the ropes and were walking through our little crowd.
I had no idea they were the stars of the show, but it didn't take me long to figure it out as they began chatting with the fans and generously taking photos with everyone.

So just for fun I asked my hubby to take a shot of me with one of them. I later found out the actor's name was Norman Reedus. (I googled the cast when we got home.) He, along with the others were really just super nice, spending several minutes with us all.

Well, I thought it would be interesting to watch one of the shows to see what it was all about, plus see the town and landmarks that we knew and loved. But, I just did not have the stomach for it. Ewww!  Although, I do have the eyes for it! Zombie Eyes that is!

You can see the "Walker Stalkers" in the small town on any given day. But, meeting one of the stars might not be as easy as it once was. As we were leaving my in-laws from a family Labor Day weekend cook-out, filming was taking place behind the huge walls they erected last year. We saw several signs stating that due to safety reasons, the cast has been asked not to stop for photos, etc.    

These photos were taken on my cell phone.
I know the quality..or lack terrible! back to our pops.
I was 'eyeballing' my peppermint candies, when it hit me right between the eyes! These would make perfect bloodshot eyeballs.

Let's make some.

~Large Candy Eyeballs
~Lollipop Sticks
~Food Color Pens

Using your pens, color the whites of the eyeballs.

*if you don't have food color pens, just mix a little food color with water and use a paintbrush to apply color*
Place peppermint candy on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approximately 6 minutes.
Remove from oven, insert lollipop stick and gently press in colored eyeball. 
These are pretty gross looking, but on the bright side these will freshen even the worst zombie breath! *wink*

I made a couple without coloring the eyes.
I like these too!
We could even call them "Eye Candy" but that's totally up to you!

Thanks for dropping by, Karen
