Who could resist having these as part of their Halloween party goodies? Not me! They were too cute to pass up, and so delicious too! I put some aside for my grandchildren, and they loved them too. Good thing I made a double batch because they were gone!

I live in a mobile home park and I made 5 batches of these to give out for Halloween to the kids that came around the neighborhood. I packaged them up in a set of 2 eyeballs in green sandwich bags and tied them with an orange bow. Kids were surprised when they reached in and pulled out eyeballs! They are easy and fun to prepare and the kids loved them!

What delicious eyeballs!! They were lots of fun to make. They make a nice spooky sweet treat for Halloween parties; for work, school, or give as a gift. They are creepy looking, yet tasty, Lol. I had mini M&M’s on hand so I made my eyeball centers using those instead of the Reese pieces, and then dotted each M&M with chocolate. Thanks for posting this recipe, Linda!

The adults and kids both loved these delicious eyeballs! They are really a crowd pleaser at our Halloween party this year. Everyone loved the way they looked and couldn't wait to grab one. My kids had the job of rolling them and then I dipped them and did the squiggles on the eyeball and they put the eye on. It was a team effort but we did it and they came out looking scary as can be. The kids were quite proud of themselves and couldn't wait to offer them up to everyone at the party. Thanks!
