No time to make treats for the annual Halloween BOO-ffet? Let the kids make these cute and tasty 5-minute Creepy Halloween Eyeballs. These eyeballs are so quick and easy, they are great for a hands-on activity at a Halloween party or if the grandkids come over and need something to keep them occupied while answering the door for the trick-or-treaters. No cooking or baking is involved, so they are a great project for kids of all ages.
These eyeballs are also ideal for anyone assigned to bring a Halloween treat to a party, especially for those trying to finish last-minute costumes. Dana Ford, who usually spends lots of time on special fancy and time-consuming Halloween recipes has been including these quick eyeballs on her annual Halloween BOO-ffet table since her kids were small, and her now-grown children and guests (she usually hosts 50 or more friends, family members and neighbors) would be very disappointed if they were missing.
The only ingredients needed are powdered sugar covered mini donuts, red gel frosting, green gummy Lifesavers, and a few semi-sweet chocolate chips. A cute Halloween tray makes it even more festive. If there are a few guests coming for Halloween, the recipe doubles and triples easily.
