A Very Zombie Xmas

We started a new tradition at our house this year.  On Christmas Eve, we gathered around the table and made gingerbread houses.  Of course, the general theme was North Pole or Winter Wonderland.  I decided to go in another direction.  Imagine a different kind of visitor on Christmas...




The main structural material was graham crackers, not gingerbread.  I also made the tombstones and coffin and boarded up the windows and doors with graham crackers.  The shingles on the house are made with mini Nilla Wafers.  Instead of frosting, I used peanut butter to cement everything together.  The zombies are made with a toothpick frame covered in gumdrop bits and green fruity licorice.

Yes, Der Krampus. Except for the zombies' toothpick skeletons, it's all edible.
