DIRECTIONS

  • Cream the butter and peanut butter together.
  • Beat in the vanilla and sugar.
  • Chill for 1/2 hour.
  • Roll into small balls, chill on wax paper for another 1/2 hour.
  • In a microwave, melt the white dipping chocolate.
  • Using two spoons dip the eyeballs into the white chocolate.
  • Let cool on waxed paper until firm. Chilling will speed up the process.
  • Pour a drop or two of blue food coloring into the remaining melted chocolate.
  • Make a round iris on the eyeball, and immediately press a miniature chocolate chip in the center for a pupil, doing 5 at at time.
  • For the bloodshot effect, dip the tiny end of a toothpick in red food colouring and squiggle the lines from the pupil outward, but not quite to the edges of the ball.
  • These are quite tasty--considering how creepy they are.
  • Note: White dipping chocolate is also known as white bark.
