How cool are these creepy Halloween Eyeball Cookies? These creepy eye cookies are super easy to make because you just start off with vanilla wafers and white chocolate. A little icing and decoration and they are ready for your little trick-or-treaters to enjoy.
Halloween Eyeball Cookies
Halloween is such a fun holiday and I just can’t get enough of this scary Halloween cookie recipe. Just like my spider web cookies, these creepy cookie eyes are a snap to make. My kids loved helping out and making their own.
The cookies have a few embellishments so they stand out, and you just can’t help yourself from holding them up to your own eyes. I saw the little eyeball candies and thought they would be awesome to play around with. I used the white candy melts here, and my favorite gel dyes. The tubes of frosting made easy work for the iris and to stick the candy eyes on. I used blue, but you could pick any color you desired.
Have you seen any of my other fun Halloween treats? I’ve got all sorts of fun ideas from Halloween popcorn treats, to blood and bones appetizers, to spider cookies, and more! I just love being creative for Halloween!
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE HALLOWEEN COOKIES
Homemade Halloween cookies are so much fun to make because they can be creepy and not perfect.
Aren’t the little eyeball cookies cute, too? My son loved holding the finished cookies up to his own eyes, so don’t be surprised if you see these sweet treats staring back at you! In addition to these cookies, here are the treats in this picture:
- Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl with 1 tbsp shortening for 1 minute. Stir. Continue heating in 30 second bursts, stirring in between each, until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.
- Dip top of each cookie in melted chocolate and place on wax paper to cool. Let chocolate set up before adding a dab of blue tube frosting and add one eyeball candy to each cookie.
- Place several drops of red dye on a small piece of wax paper or in a small bowl. Dip the tip of a toothpick into dye and gently drag it onto the chocolate to create the bloodshot eye look.
- Let chocolate and frosting finish setting set up and then transfer to a serving dish for the party!
Use any brand of vanilla wafers to make these. Using all store bought items really makes these creepy cookies come together fast.
