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.
- 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!
