Spooky Peanut Butter Eyeballs Recipe for Halloween

Halloween dessert just got spookier! Here’s a great treat that I have made for Halloween!  They are such a hit!  The look is great, the taste and unbelievable and they truly are fairly easy to make!

Spooky Peanut Butter Eyeballs

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 8 oz. white chocolate
  • 1 small bag M&Ms
  • red decorator frosting
  • blue food coloring
  • cooking spray

Mix the Peanut Butter Eyeball Ingredients

In the bowl of a large mixer, blend peanut butter and butter until creamy. Slowly begin to add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Continue mixing until it begins to resemble cookie dough.

Form the Candy Eyeballs

Using a spoon or a melon baller, scoop out balls of peanut butter mixture.  Roll between your palms to get them as round as possible.  If mixture gets too gooey, place in fridge for a few minutes to stiffen. Place them on the cookie sheet covered with wax paper that is sprayed with cooking spray and put them in a refrigerator or freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Making the Chocolate Coating

While the eyeballs harden, melt the white chocolate in the microwave, stirring frequently.  Set aside 1/4 cup of the melted chocolate.  Add one drop at a time of blue food coloring to the 1/4 cup.  Stir until it forms a light blue chocolate.

Coating the Eyeballs

Remove peanut butter eyeballs from the fridge.  Carefully dip the eyeballs into the melted white chocolate and place on wax paper.  Using a small spoon, add a tiny dollop of blue chocolate to the eyeballs and add one M&M to the center.  Return to fridge and allow chocolate coating to harden for at least 15 minutes.

Decorate the Candy Eyeballs

Use the red decorator frosting to make squiggly or straight blood vessels.  Enjoy!
