Okay, let’s just get this out of the way right now. My name is Kim and I’m a Walking Dead addict. I’ve watched the series 20 times and have no plans to stop. I LOVE this show. Way too much. So I decided holding events on the blog that revolve around the show was a stellar idea. You’re welcome.
I could not resist making something a bit icky this time around. What I love about this one is you can make it look beautiful or you can make it looks disgusting. The choice is yours. If you want to play up the creepiness of it make the dip really lumpy then use a toothpick to make the top look like blood splatters. If you want to make this because you just love cherry dip you can layer this beautifully. No one will ever know it’s a recipe for a Walking Dead party. You decide which way you want it play out.
This recipe came to mind while watching the episode Thank You. When we see the guys fall off the dumpster and the chaos that ensues as the walkers swarm, that’s the scene that inspired this particular recipe. When you see all the blood and guts being torn into it’s just a sea of red. That’s where my mind was while making this one.
I wanted a recipe that would impress with taste but something that could be used for a Walking Dead Party. My family goes crazy for cherry cheesecake so this easy dip seemed like the perfect recipe. This is sort of a cross between cherry cheesecake and marshmallow fluff cream cheese fruit dip. I knew it would be a hit.
I went back and forth whether to make it look like a graveyard or whether to keep it a bit plain. I decided to keep it plain since I was going for easy and quick. This recipe seriously takes only minutes to make. I love recipes like that. Ones that deliver huge taste for minimal effort. Who has time for complicate recipes during an apocalypse?
If you’re a huge fan like me you were probably grief stricken over the fate of Glenn. The episode that inspired this recipe had me in tears. The thought of any of beloved characters dying just does me in. I adore Glenn, he’s always looking at life with a glass half full kind of attitude and I dig that about him. He has hope, which isn’t easy.
My hope is that Glenn sticks around forever. I honestly hope him, Maggie, Rick, Daryl, Carol and Carl hang in there through it all. Anyone else can bite it, but those 6, nope, I want them all to survive. I can’t help myself, I play favourites. It’s hard not to when you become so hooked on a show like this one.
Whatever happens I just hope the carnage continues. There’s no such thing as a fun and light-hearted apocalypse. It’s suppose to be gut-wrenching and difficult. People are going to die. Hell, even Rick knows that. Think back to his talk with Carol. Rick says “No more kid stuff…People are gonna die. I’m gonna die. Your mom…”
They seem to leave us breadcrumbs to follow. I just hope the foreshadowing isn’t always right. I keep thinking about Daryl in the coffin or Daryl lying next to the motorcycle walker on the ground and I want to scream. You can take anyone you want but leave Daryl the hell alone, Gimple. No joke!
Okay, now that I’m done rambling you should probably go whip up this dip before the next episode. I’m so stinking excited for Valentine’s Day. I mean this recipe is just screaming Valentine’s Day, am I right? Whip some up for your sweetheart. Just leave out the body parts for dipping.
This dip is delightful. In the creepiest way possible!
No Walking Dead Post would be complete with a photo of Daryl.
How about one more for good measure? M’kay!
I’m not even sorry. I love having Daryl join me for photo sessions.

Places to stalk Cravings of a Lunatic!
- 1 package 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 jar marshmallow cream
- 1 can cherry pie filling
- 6 ounces milk chocolate broken into small pieces for even melting
In a stand mixer whisk the cream cheese until fluffy, add the heavy cream and mix slowly, then gradually increase speed to high, mix until the mixture become fluffy but still soft. Add the confectioners' sugar and marshmallow cream, mix again until well combined.
Alternately scoop small spoonfuls of the pie filling and dip mixture into small serving dishes. Just keep layering so it looks random and jumbled. Once it's layered completely take the blunt edge of a butter knife and just drag it through random areas to make it look splattered.
Place the dishes in the fridge for at least one hour, or up to about 4 hours.
You can purchase The Walking Dead Silicone Tray from Amazon.
Melt chocolate in the microwave for about 1 to 2 minutes, stir until smooth. Pour into silicone tray. Place in the freezer for about 15 to 30 minutes. Remove and turn over to remove the chocolate pieces. Serve with the dip for dunking. Watch your friends faces as they dunk zombie parts in bloody dip, it's delightful.
Serve the Bloody Guts Dip with a big old bowl of Chocolate Zombie Body Parts. Plus a big old TWD loving smile!
