Halloween is in the air and my little spooks and goblins have been lookin' for fun and scary treats...
These Peanut Butter Truffle Eyeball Suckers were a huge hit! Not only do they look great, they taste fabulous thanks to the addition of crushed Reese's Puffs Cereal.
I guarantee these will be gobbled up before you can give them a second "glance"! ;)
Mix up the dough ingredients, roll into 1" balls and place on wax paper.
Now, you can make these eyeballs stand-alone or
put them on sucker sticks. We like making them into suckers, it's easier for the kids to dip them and they're fun to eat! If making suckers, dip each stick in a little bit of melted white candy melts and push one into each peanut butter ball. Place in fridge for about 5 minutes to harden. (Tip: put your wax paper on a cookie sheet, then it's easy to transfer your treats to/from the fridge!)
Dip each ball into melted White candy melts and set on wax paper to harden (about 5 minutes). When set, dip one side into melted red candy melts. Using a toothpick, drizzle some extra red around the edges to look like the eyes are "bloodshot". Press one chocolate chip, pointed side down, into the center and let set completely.
Here's an example of the "bloodshot" eyes. My kids loved doing this part!
