Peanut Butter Eyeballs By Elizabeth LaBau,

For this recipe, you will need:
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

  • 3 tbsp. butter, softened

  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 6 oz. white chocolate candy coating

  • 1 small bag M&Ms

  • red decorator frosting

  • Mix the Peanut Butter Eyeball Ingredients

    In the bowl of a large mixer, blend peanut butter and butter until creamy. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla to peanut butter mixture and continue beating until it comes together and looks like a thick cookie dough.

    Form the Candy Eyeballs

    Using a spoon, scoop out balls of peanut butter candy and roll between your palms to get them as round as possible. Place them on the cookie sheet and put them in a refrigerator or freezer for at least 30 minutes.

    Coat the Peanut Butter Balls

    In separate bowls, melt the white chocolate coatings in the microwave. Stir after every minute until it is smooth throughout. Use two forks to dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate coating.

    Decorate the Candy Eyeballs

    While the chocolate is still wet, press an M&M candy in the center for the iris. Return the eyes to the refrigerator to harden. Once the eyeballs are firm, use a knife to cut the excess chocolate from around the base. Use the red decorator frosting to make squiggly or straight blood vessels.

    And that is how you make peanut butter eyeballs. Thanks for watching, to learn more visit us on the Web at food.about.c
