the "blood" got a bit runny near the end lol

With Halloween quickly approaching, here's a fun and easy last minute treat you can prepare for any Halloween festivity. I used already made muffins, but you can certainly make your own cake if you prefer.

Thank you to Food Network for the inspiration!

Halloween Cake Eyeballs

  • 3 cups red velvet muffin or cake crumbles
  • 1/2 container cream cheese frosting
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate
  • several chocolate chips
  • a few marshmallows
  • red and blue food coloring
Cooking Directions
  1. In a large bowl or food processor, combine cake crumbs and frosting until can easily be formed into balls.
  2. Form balls delicately into desired size.
  3. In a separate bowl, melt white chocolate and let cool slightly (be careful not to burn yourself!).
  4. Roll/dip balls into white chocolate until fully coated.
  5. Let sit on parchment paper or greased surface in the refrigerator until coating has solidified.
  6. Using a bit of blue food coloring, mold into the marshmallow chunks until pale blue & sticky. Form small circular shape for the iris, should be bigger than chocolate chip. Place chocolate chip in center as pupil to complete eyes.
  7. Using a toothpick and red food coloring, draw on red zig-zags for "blood-shot" look.
  8. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

A Halloween DIY post coming up next! :)

Get Your Feast On!
