Pass The Eyeballs…..Please

Heelllllllooooooo!
So sorry, but there will be no freecycle friday tonight :(
This week has been full of yucky migraines, semi-sick kiddos, and baking goodies for the bake sale at my daughter’s school’s Fall Festival.
Ok, semi-sick kiddos sounds weird…..but it has been weird. My youngest has only had problems at night these last few nights. Which means I have gotten NO sleep (hubby conveniently works nights :)
O-well.
But, I do have a treat tonight…..literally.

Forked Eyeballs!!!
I got the recipe here on the “Family Fun” website (LOVE it!) and made them for the Fall Festival tonight.
Here’s how I did it…..and they are the yummiest eyeballs you will ever eat!

~A dozen or 2 of donut holes (storebought, of course)
~A bag of white chocolate chips
~Plastic forks- Use black, orange, or green for Halloween effect :)
~A bit of frosting colored red and black. Make sure to dye it with gel coloring to get that deep color.

Start by “forking” your donut holes. I know, I know, sounds too hard. Well, you can quit if you need….but I’ll keep on with the tute for the others.

Make a double-boiler and melt down your chips. You can keep it on the stove while you dip, to keep it melted.

I smoothed the choc with a knife and patted the surface to make it kinda bumpy and eerie-looking. But, if you want smoother eyeballs, add a teaspoon or so of crisco.

I like to use empty jars filled with beans to put things I dip and keep them upright. These you will probably need to put in the fridge after dipping to speed up the hardening……otherwise it will take FOREVER to set up.

Once the choc. sets, take them out and pipe on the pupils and red veins. I just put the frosting in little baggies and snipped tiny holes in the corner to do this part. Just call it the poor (wo)man’s piping bag :)

Then, once the icing was set, I put little bags on the tops and tied them with raffia. I just didn’t take pics since I was too busy RUNNING out of the house to make it on time.

They seemed to be a big hit and they tasted really scrumptious! Using donut holes would work great with Bakerella’s fun cake pops to make it a bit easier (but only in a pinch ‘cuz the cake balls taste wwwaaaayyyyyyy better).

Anyhoo, later I’ll post about the other treat I made. But, watch out it’s spoooooky!

Have fun!

  2. Oh my gosh the donut hole is the best idea ever for this that makes it so much easier than baking your own little cake balls and knowing my cooking this would taste way better lol.
