Peanut butter Eyeballs!
We love peanut butter eyeballs. My daughter found the recipe several years ago and it has since been a Halloween family favorite. The saying, “bet you can’t eat just one!” certainly applies to these delicious treats.
What you will need:
2 cups confectioners’ sugar, divided
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 pound white candy coating (in small pieces) or white chocolate chips
24 milk chocolate M&M’s
1 tablespoon water
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
- Mix together 1 cup of the confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter and butter. Roll into 1-in. balls; place on a waxed paper-lined pan. Chill for 30 minutes or until firm.
- In a microwave, melt white candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip balls in coating; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper. Immediately top of each eyeball with an M and M to make the pupil.
- Make squiggly lines to make the eyeballs look look “bloodshot”.
Makes about 2 dozen eyeballs.
