These scrumptious balls of peanut butter love are so quick and easy to make. Whether you enjoy them yourself or take them as a fun Halloween party treat, you’re sure to bring the spook to the party! Here’re the supplies I used when making these creepy eyeballs.
Before I show you how I assembled the peanut butter eyeballs here’s how I made the Reese’s like filling. IT’S SO EASY! With only 4 ingredients (3 if you consider the peanut ingredients as 1 😉 ): butter, peanut butter, ground peanuts, and powdered sugar, you can’t go wrong.
Once they were mixed I formed the peanut butter “dough” into balls. I used a super tiny scoop to keep them consistent. It’s a 0.25 oz scoop. You can find one here if you’re interested.
I stuck the smooth peanut butter balls in the freezer while I gathered the rest of the supplies. I used Candy Melts because they harden quickly and very hard. If you’d prefer, you could use regular white chocolate in place of white candy melts.
Here’s how I assembled these fun peanut butter eyeballs. Once the balls were nice and firm (from getting a chill in the freezer) I stuck on with a toothpick then dipped it into the white chocolate. I gave it a quick tap or two to release any excess chocolate. Then I slid the coated ball onto a sheet of waxed paper. If a hole was left where the toothpick had been I just dapped a little extra chocolate onto it to cover.
Before the chocolate coating had hardened I added a little sugar eyeball to the top. Once hardened I added the red streaks. The red streaks were just made from red Candy Melts. I cut a tiny hole in the corner of the bag and piped the red around and down each eyeball.
Once the red streaks had hardened, they were done. So easy, right?! Even for all the “non-bakers” out there, these are within reach. I promise!
These eyeballs are so fun and all who see and eat will love them. Happy spooky treat making ya’ll!
