Eyeball Cookies Recipe

Halloween Recipes

We just absolutely love this Eyeball Cookies recipe. My daughters have asked me numerous times to make these even though it's not Halloween.



Makes about 40 eyeballs.

  1. Cream the butter and peanut butter together.

  2. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and thoroughly blend.

  3. Shape into 1 inch balls (about the size of a quarter in the palm of your hand) and refrigerate on waxed paper or parchment paper for 30 minutes.

  4. Set out another sheet of waxed paper or cooking parchment paper on the table.

  5. Melt candy bark according to the instructions on the package.

  6. Dip the balls into the melted candy and place on the paper.

    It is recommended to use a toothpick but we found it to be easier to drop the balls into the candy and then fish them out with a spoon. Or you can hold it with our fingers and just dip fast and then twirl the ball around so that the candy will cover all around. If the candy is warm enough, when you set the ball down on the paper the candy will run down and cover the touched spots.

  7. Place an M&M on each eyeball ("M" side down)

  8. When the candy hardens, take a toothpick and dip one end into the red food coloring.

  9. Paint several squiggles from the M&M down to look like blood veins.
