Zombies are common surface enemies that appear at night, and are a primary reason newer players will want to build a shelter before night arrives. Along with Demon Eyes, they are generally among the first night enemies a player will encounter, as they appear in areas a player first spawns. Multiple NPCs living in the area will reduce or prevent local enemy spawns, including Zombies.

Zombies follow the Fighter AI and walk towards the player, dealing damage on contact. They can jump and navigate platforms. Zombies will seem to hit closed doors in their path repeatedly, though most of them cannot open Doors unless it is a Blood Moon (during which Blood Zombies will spawn and be able to open doors) Spore Zombies can open doors at any time.

In Expert Mode , some Zombies carry disembodied arms. These deal more damage on contact than other zombies and will stop to perform a "slashing" animation when near the player, extending the range at which they can damage the player. These arm-wielding zombies are unable to open or interact with doors at any time.

Don’t let another stuck inside or rainy day pass you by without making one of these pom pom poppers! If you’ve been stashing away the extra, empty toilet paper tubes, now’s the time to break them out! Or if you have extra paper or plastic cups, those work too!

Some people may also choose to fire off marshmallows, but we prefer pom poms. Styrofoam balls and ping pong balls work as well. Turn it into a science experiment too because there is a bit of easy physics involved! Read on to learn more and add this pom pom shooter to your next indoor day!

This fun for ages 2 to 102!

This chunky substance can be used to gross out your Halloween party guests. Put it in bowls on the table or drip it onto your unsuspecting store-bought severed heads and such.

To make this gore, just whip up a batch of our Gross Blood recipe, and make a hunk of Fake Flesh. Make twice as much Fake Flesh as Gross Blood. Drop bits of fake flesh in the blood. If you have more blood than flesh, you will end up with prop blood that has a marbled pink hue to it and freezes mid-flow.


Legend has it that Donn Beach originally concocted the Zombie to help a hung-over customer get through a business meeting. [3] [4] The customer returned several days later to complain that he had been turned into a zombie for his entire trip. Its smooth, fruity taste works to conceal its extremely high alcoholic content. Don the Beachcomber restaurants limit their customers to two Zombies apiece because of their potency, which Beach said could make one "like the walking dead." [5] [6]

According to the original recipe, the Zombie cocktail included three different kinds of rum, lime juice, falernum, Angostura bitters, Pernod, grenadine, and "Don's Mix", a combination of cinnamon syrup and grapefruit juice. [7]

Beach was very cautious with the recipes of his original cocktails. His instructions for his bartenders contained coded references to ingredients, the contents of which were only known to him. [8] Beach had reason to worry a copy of the Zombie was served at the 1939 New York World's Fair by a man trying to take credit for it named Monte Proser (later of the mob-tied Copacabana). [9] [10] [11]

Beach's original recipes for the Zombie and other Tiki drinks have been published in Sippin' Safari by Jeff "Beachbum" Berry. Berry researched the origins of many Tiki cocktails, interviewing bartenders from Don the Beachcomber's and other original Tiki places and digging up other original sources. Mostly notably, Sippin' Safari details Beach's development of the Zombie with three different recipes dating from 1934 to 1956.

The Zombie was occasionally served heated (a drink more commonly known today as the I.B.A. Hot Zombie), as outlined by the Catering Industry Employee (CIE) journal: "Juice of 1 lime, unsweetened pineapple juice, bitters, 1 ounce heavily bodied rum, 2 ounces of Gold Label rum, 1 ounce of White Label rum, 1 ounce of apricot-flavored brandy, 1 ounce of papaya juice" [12]

Due to the popularity of the cocktail during the Tiki craze and the fact that Beach kept his recipe secret and occasionally altered it, there are many variations of the Zombie served at other restaurants and bars (some tasting nothing like the original cocktail). The word zombie also began to be used at other tiki themed establishments, such as at the Zombie Hut and Zombie Village. [13] [14]

Trader Vic also listed a recipe for the Zombie in his 1947 Bartender's Guide. [15] Other competitors created drinks linked to the zombie. At Stephen Crane's Chicago Kon-Tiki Ports restaurant they featured a drink on the menu called The Walking Dead: "Makes the dead walk and talk. For those who want immediate action - meet the first cousin to the famous 'Zombie'. Demerara 151 rum. 90¢." [16]

In a small bowl, combine the cold water and liquor. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to reach a consistent temperature.

In a separate bowl, place the gelatin, and slowly add the boiling water. Stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

Pour the gelatin mixture into the water and liquor mixture. Stir well. If using food coloring to change or enhance the color, add it now.

Pour the mixture into shot glasses, molds, or a baking pan.

Refrigerate until the liquid sets—at least 2 hours, but overnight is recommended. Serve cold and enjoy.

Why Not Use a Higher-Proof Alcohol?

Even if you'd like boozier shots, resist the urge to use a higher-proof liquor such as Everclear. Your best bet is to add a little more of an 80-proof liquor and cut a bit of the cold water. You'll want to keep the alcohol content in check, for a few reasons:

  • A clear vodka tastes better than Everclear.
  • Often, people will have a few Jell-O shots along with other alcohol, so using Everclear in the shots can easily send a person over the edge.
  • If you use a higher-proof liquor, you may have some issues getting the shots to set up, as liquor has a different freezing point than water, so you need to maintain a balance between the alcohol and the other liquids.

For Fun Shots

Here are a few expert tips on how to make the best Jell-O shots:

  • Small, plastic shot cups are perfect for serving because a good squeeze pops the shot into your mouth. To make this easier, you could spray some cooking oil into the cups, or rub them with a tiny drop of vegetable oil. This won't affect the taste.
  • If making these a couple days ahead of time and/or taking these to a party, buy shot cups with lids to protect your creations and store in the fridge until serving.
  • If you serve the shots in small glasses, it's best to provide miniature spoons so guests can dig out the gelatin.
  • To make a bigger Jell-O creation and easily unmold it, reduce the liquid volume slightly. Try a test batch with all the liquids cut in half or double up on the gelatin.

Customize Your Shots

There are many things you can do to customize your Jell-O shots. Experiment with any of these ideas and be sure to start out with a test batch before scaling up the recipe:

  • Mix and match flavored gelatin: Use it to replace or enhance a certain flavor. In the margarita Jell-O shot, the lime-flavored gelatin gives a nice boost to the lime juice, but switching to strawberry gelatin creates an imitation of the strawberry margarita.
  • Unflavored gelatin: Plain gelatin usually comes in 1/4-ounce envelopes with 2 1/2 teaspoons of gelatin, which should gel the 2 cups of liquid used in this recipe. Use unflavored gelatin when you want other flavors to shine. Some of the shots that use unflavored gelatin can look dull and boring. While the mix is still liquid, change or enhance the color by adding small amounts of food coloring until you get the desired hue.
  • Flavored booze: Use flavored vodka, rum, or tequila to add to the flavor of your Jell-O shots.
  • Color by flavor: Distinguish flavored shots by their color. Use yellow for a banana daiquiri, red for a planter's punch, and blue for a blue Hawaiian.
  • Rainbow shot: To make layers, begin by making one flavor of gelatin and fill cups 1/2 or 1/3 of the way full. Chill these until it's almost set—about 1 to 1 1/2 hours—before adding the next flavor. Repeat until you have completed the layers.
  • Fruit molds: The rinds of citrus fruits are fun molds for shots. Cut lemons, limes, or oranges in half and remove all of the fruit, leaving the peel intact. Fill this "bowl" with the gelatin mixture and allow it to set. Cut each rind into thirds or quarters for single-serve pieces.
  • Fruity bits: Add small fruit pieces to the gelatin before it sets up. Berries and pitted cherries are the perfect accessories.
  • Sweeten it up: If the shot is too tart, add simple syrup in lieu of a portion of the cold water—1 ounce or less of syrup should do.

If you want to experiment, you can transform almost any of your favorite cocktail recipes into a jelly shot. The key is to maintain the original cocktail's proportions while keeping the volume of cold liquid at 8 ounces.

How Strong Is a Jello Shot?

If you make the basic Jell-O shot with a single 80-proof liquor, the alcohol content comes out to be about 12 percent ABV (24 proof). That's equivalent to the average wine. While a couple of 1-ounce shots may not get you drunk, overindulging on these shots can happen more quickly than you might expect.

Zombie Slime Shooters - Recipes

The air is getting crisp, the leaves are turning beautiful shades of red and yellow, and Halloween is right around the corner. I know, I know. It's still a bit early. but I had so much fun creating these Zombie Boogers treat bags, that I couldn't resist sharing them with you. Plus this gives you plenty of time to plan and bake for your Halloween party.

The recipe for the Zombie Boogers popcorn is super, duper easy and is sure to make your guests shriek with delight. The treat bags are available for purchase in my Etsy shop. Enjoy!

"Zombie Boogers" Green Candy Coated Popcorn

Recipe Difficulty: Easy
Serves: 8-10
Time: 1 1/2 hours

16-20 cups of popped popcorn

1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoon green food coloring
1 teaspoon baking soda
(Depending on how coated you would like the popcorn, I recommend making a double batch of the mixture to achieve the same look of the popcorn as in the photo.)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (95 degrees C).

Place your popcorn in two large shallow baking dishes.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt buter. Stir in sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to boil while stirring consistently. Boil without stirring for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and green food coloring until the mixture is evenly colored and combined. Stir in baking soda. Mixture will double. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir to combine and evenly coat.

Place the popcorn in the oven. Stir the popcorn every 15 minutes for 1 hour. Remove from the oven. Let cool for about 5 minutes and then break into pieces. Be careful popcorn will still be hot.

(Editor's Update: I've had several comments and emails from readers saying that they had to adjust or tweak the recipe. I've updated the recipe slightly due to these suggestions. Also, please note that I cook at altitude (above 5,200 feet). Depending on your location, you may need to adjust the recipe slightly to achieve the same serving size.)


Love the package, so creative, and thanks for the recipe!

Do you mean 3 cups of popped corn? My mixture did not double?

@Anonymous Hmmmm. Nope, I didn't mean 3 cups of popped corn -- that wouldn't be enough for 8-10 serving. When you add in the baking soda, it will cause a reaction and the syrup mixture will double almost immediately. Try keeping the mixture over the heat and see if that helps.

How well does this keep. will it become stale within a day or so ?

Can I use microwave popcorn? If so, how many standard size bags?

Thank you soo much for sharing this recipe! Iam making this right now to take to my witches party this weekend.

The only problem i have had with the recipe is that i have to double it so all the popcorn would be coverd in green!

@unknown It stays good for up to two weeks, although not as good as when it's first made. But I live in Colorado and the climate here is very, very dry. In more humid climates, the popcorn will go stale quicker.

@ The Stewart's I don't see why you couldn't use microwave popcorn! Although, I would recommend using a plain popcorn or slightly buttered kind. Since I didn't test the recipe with microwave popcorn, I am uncertain how many standard size bags you would need. But my serving size for the recipe was about a 1 1/2 cup - 2 cups of popped popcorn for every serving. I hope that helps you!

I had to double the syrup recipe and only use 1 cup of popcorn so it was as green as in the picture. I didn't have corn syrup and substituted it with honey. Maybe that is why.

For anyone who is having a tough time with the candy mixture, this is a standard caramel corn recipe with white sugar instead of brown and food coloring added. If you're having trouble with the high altitude recipe, just google "caramel corn recipe" and replace the brown sugar with white and add food coloring as suggested above.

For the anon using honey, substituting honey will not work to make proper caramel.

@ The Stewart's I googled popcorn. It says that 1/2 cup unpopped corn = 16 cups popped corn. So 2 cups unpopped corn = 64 cups popped corn. That's a lot of popcorn. LOL! I have the ACT II brand from Wal-Mart and couldn't find anywhere on the pkg. what it yields, but I wouldn't think that there would be more than 2-3 cups popped corn in a bag. Hope this helps.

@Ninny 123 - This recipe does yield a lot of popcorn, but you do make a make a good point about the amount of popcorn kernels. I switched the recipe from kernels to popped corn so that you can make enough according to my serving size.

I also had a bit of issue having enough caramel to cover the amount of popcorn to make it look like the photo. I am at 2800 feet. how long after you add the baking soda do you wait to pour it over the popcorn?

@ Anonymous - After adding the baking soda, it should double within a matter of seconds. I then immediately poured it over the popcorn.

I've had several emails and comments from other readers who have encountered the same problem. When I created the recipe, I had to pop a lot of popcorn to get to my recommended serving size. But many readers did not encounter the same problem as I had. I did a bit of research about popped popcorn ratios, and have subsequently adjusted the recipe accordingly. Hopefully, the updated recipe will give you a better popcorn to caramel ratio.

I was wondering that is the cup measure you are using? I'm from a country that uses only decilitras, grams etc.. theres so many different cup sizes in internet,

I assume you mean 1 cup= 240 ml?

@ Anonymous - I didn't realize there were that many cups sizes! I think the 1 cup = 240 ml is a good assumption.

I've made this recipe a couple of time without measuring exactly, and it still turned out great. The only step that you need to follow exactly is leaving the popcorn in the oven for over an hour at the right temperature. If you take it out too soon, the candy coating will not harden correctly.

Hi there! Great recipe! I also had to tweak the recipe a bit to get it just right. I actually added in a 1/4 cup of water so that that consistency was not too thick. This made it easier to mix it in with the popcorn and I also did not put the popcorn in the oven for the full hour, 20 minutes seemed to work for me. Thanks for wonderful, creepy recipe. The perfect touch to my Halloween party and tastes delicious!

Just wanted to thank you for this recipe. I used it in our recent Minecraft party.
I didn't change the recipe and it turned out great as you can see in the pictures. Everyone loved the idea of green popcorn. So creative thanks again.

can you make popcorn balls with this?

@ Anonymous Yes, you can easily make popcorn balls out of the recipe. Although, I recommend letting the mixture cool for a minute or two (as it's very hot in the oven), and then cover your hands with a little butter to prevent sticking when you form the balls. You will need to work fast. Once the mixture cools it's difficult to shape.

I tried it with different colours including red and yellow food colourings. My kids loved the colourful popcorns.

If I wanted to flavor the popcorn, could I add flavored extracts? If so, do you have an idea for about how much extract to add to the recipe? Thanks! :)

@ Jackie Chappell Yes! Right now the recipe calls for 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, but you could easily substitute it for any flavor you would like.

Thank you so much for posting this! I used this recipe when making Zombie Boogers for my kid's Minecraft Birthday Party. I linked back to your site to give credit :)

Great idea, I'm in the middle of making a pink version for a My Little Pony party, but have also repined this as a possible superhero party idea - as I think if you make it as per above and add some gold edible glitter (just as it comes out of the oven) this would make great Kryptonite :)

my popcorn went only greenish brownish cloour any ideas why

@ nikki mccauley: If it turned a greenish brownish color, I think you might have left the mixture cooking too long. If the sugar or the butter burns, you will have a brownish color coating.

Do you have a template for the bag? Love it!

@Anonymous The treat bags are available for purchase in my Etsy shop

I'm doing this right now. My son is having a Walking Dead birthday party and thought it was a great idea!! My mixture didn't double when i put the baking soda in though. and i halfed the popcorn amount. So i'm going to make a second saucepan of sugar and see if i can cover the rest! I used Neon Green food color and it is super bright!

@ Jamie If your mixture is not doubling usually the baking soda is too old. Try using fresh baking soda and seeing if that works. As I mentioned in the recipe, you may want to double the mixture to really, really coat the popcorn.

I made a bowl of the popcorn how do I store it to keep it from getting nasty.

I made the recipe with double the mixture like a lot of others. It turned out yummy and was a major hit at our halloween party. The only problem I had was oven timing. Heating g in the oven seemed to coat the popcorn thoroughly but also burned it a bit in the first 15 min. I don't think the oven time is necessary and will omit it next time.

@ Brittany Barragan I would recommend storing it at room temperature in a sealed container. It should keep for a week or more.

@ Anonymous I have tried the recipe with and without baking it in the oven and much prefer the baked version. Baking it gives the coating a nice crunch as I find the unbaked a bit sticky.

How close was the popcorn to your heating element in the oven? You should always bake the popcorn on the center rack. I am thinking that your popcorn might have been too close to your oven's heating element and that is why it burnt.

Made a 5qt pot of popcorn it filled 2 9x13 pans to the top ,but the coating didnt cover both pans so next time need to make 3 times the mixture or make a level layer of pop corn

I doubled the caramel and recipe worked great for me although I forgot to add the baking soda :( and I really wish I had added more food coloring to mine. but its more a booger color so it works for me as long as it tastes good which it does! No more buying popcorn from kernels Thanks for the inspiration, and recipe.

Nice post. Your post is very useful for parcel service. Thanks for sharing it..

Thank you for the delightful recipe! I will certainly enjoy giving these out at Halloween!

Thank you so much for this recipe. Am definitely going to try making this for my Grandson's Minecraft themed Birthday Party. Question: Is the corn syrup you use light/white/clear? I am assuming it is. (Re the commenter 'Nikki' perhaps she used the dark (golden) type reason why it turned out greenish-BROWN.) -Brenda-

@mrsben You are very welcome. I hope your grandson likes his Zombie Boogers! I used clear corn syrup. That is an excellent idea why @ nikki mccauley turned greenish brown.

Brooke, re my comment above. Mission was accomplished and hope you do not mind me sharing my experience making the popcorn which was as follows:

a) If wanting a heavy coating do 'not' double the ingredients but instead divide your sixteen cups into two and prepare as separate batches. (Reason explained below.)
b) If 'not' using pure vanilla, double the ingredient of artificial vanilla (otherwise it will be extremely sweet.)
c) When the syrup mixture reaches a rapid boil start timing your four minutes then.

d) For combining the syrup and popped popcorn invest in two disposable (cheap) foil roasting pans and give the utensils beings used, a light spray of cooking oil to make clean up easy.
e) For your baking sheets, I recommend lining them with parchment paper for the above reason as well.
e) A second pair of helping hands is beneficial when applying the syrup to the popcorn as the mixture cools off rapidly and can quickly harden. (i.e: One person to add the syrup while the other mixes/tosses the popcorn.)

f) When baking, do 'not' overload your baking sheets and place only on middle rack. (I used a total of three large ones.)
g) Regarding the baking time, I personally found that 20 to 25 minutes maximum (with two stirs) was sufficient so I recommend doing the taste test. In other words . if your popcorn has a crunch . it is done! (I notice another commenter (Ashley) found 20 minutes was sufficient as well.)

Confession: With no intention of criticism I ruined my first batch from over baking it but want to add ovens do vary in temperatures plus I used a hot air popper to prepare my popcorn which I made the day before and sealed in airtight baggies which may have affected the baking time.

Last but not least, a big 'thank you' to Brooke as the popcorn addition to the children's loot bags was a great success. I labelled them as "Creeper Boogers" and "Eat At Your Own Risk" which the eight year olds (all boys) thought was pretty cool. ☺ -Brenda-

Footnote: For those who may be packaging popcorn in 16 oz. cups with dome lids, they take approximately 2 2/3 cups of popped corn.

@mrsben Thank you so much for your suggestions!

Everyone - feel free to adjust the recipe to what works best for your kitchen.

Okay. I'm REAALLLYY lazy. So I used color mist food color spray from Wilton. It worked. But thank you for the other way of doing it. Lol. Love your blog.

If you use FRESH Red Mill or Frontier baking soda, you will get better results.

Great idea for the color mist. I will use caramel corn flavoring and the mist will wet the popcorn enough for the flavoring to stick. The group I will be making this for is mostly diabetic.

To the person that used the Wilton Color Mist. Did you need to use more than one bottle of it to get the dark green effect?

May I ask, did you pop the corn with an electric popper or by stove top? Do you think it will make much of a difference?

I made the popcorn on an electric stove. I don't think there would be much of a difference to pop the corn on an electric stove versus a popper

Would it work to use Agave instead of corn syrup?

What a great healthy alternative! I've never tried it with Agave so I don't know how it would taste. I'd do a small batch to test the results.

This is the same recipe I've used for years, except that my recipe used brown sugar instead of white (which I think tastes better), and my recipe uses much less baking soda. and of course no green food coloring :). Also a word of caution: Be careful when adding the food coloring to the hot mixture. It splatters everywhere! Next time I will put the pan in the sink before adding it.

I love this! Made it last minute today for a Halloween party tonight! I added teal food coloring but it came out a shamrock green so instead of blue, so my "Smirf Poop" became "Slime Nuggets" Thanks.

How to Sell Slime in Person and Online

While eCommerce is the main destination for selling slime, you don’t have to stick to online sales. Slime is a popular item for kids to not only make themselves, but also sell to fellow peers and classmates. Some schools allow students to sell things that they’ve made on their grounds, meaning you can help your child start their own business before they even graduate high school! Aside from school, kids can also sell at children’s business fairs or any other craft fair with an adult’s help and supervision.

But, if you’re an adult doing this on your own, you don’t have to sell solely on your online store either! You can also sell your slime products at craft fairs or other local market venues. To keep all of your sales in person and online synced together, so you never lose track of inventory or income, it’s a good idea to utilize a POS (point of sale) system in all of your physical transactions. Not only does this allow you to take credit cards for payments, but you’ll also be able to keep your online and offline business organized. With Shift4Shop's direct integration with Harbortouch, a leading POS system, you can get set up quickly and start selling using fully integrated eCommerce software.


As the seasons change, and the holidays and special occasions come around, celebrate with DIY fluffy slime! I will continue to add new fluffy slime themes here as we complete them.
