Okay, I fell in love with Zombies at the time the movie Fido came out.  I'm also a researcher for the ZRS and my husband is the one who got me into these monsters.  Those are the reasons behind these Zombie Truffles!  There was a part in Fido, where Mr. Theopolis (the neighbor) comes over and says "Zombie Troubles?" and that's where my chocolate brains got their name!  I put different things in my candy, and you can always change it up to best fit your taste buds!

LADY BATHORY "COUNTESS OF BLOOD"!

Lady Bathory, "Countess of Blood", the first female vampire, may have been the bloodiest of all. She married into nobility and was the distant cousin of the vampire that started it all in modern time, Vlad Dracula, "Vlad the Impaler". She lived a life of leisure and peace in her Hungarian castle home.
    That is until, so they say, a servant girl spilled a drop of her own blood upon her while bathing and grooming her. The countess noticed how the young servants blood made her skin seem rejuvenated and fell in love with its hypnotic effect.
    Soon the countess was luring more and more local females to her mountain perch to be sacrificed to her.

    She devised many ways to make this harvest of blood more painful and efficient, she did this by including tools …
