Hello fellow Halloween fans! I’m Kara from Creations by Kara, and I’m thrilled to be here today sharing a Halloween recipe for Spooktacular September. I’ve loved seeing the ideas shared over the last few weeks!
If you are looking for a quick and easy Halloween treat, give these Bloodshot Eyeball Cookies a try. They couldn’t be simpler to make. They start with vanilla wafers, so you don’t even have to do any baking.
Halloween is my favorite holiday to make food for. There are so many fun ideas out there! I’m not a big fan of the super creepy gross food. It has to actually look good for me to eat it. These eyeball cookies are creepy enough that my boys loved them, but not so creepy that I couldn’t look at them. 😉
These are quick and easy, but it does take awhile for the red food coloring to dry, so I recommend making them a few hours ahead, or even overnight. Nobody wants red stained fingers, even if it is Halloween. ha
- 1 box vanilla wafers
- 2 bags white chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp shortening or oil (don't use butter or margarine!)
- 1 small bag of M&M's
- red food coloring
- Combine the white chocolate chips and the shortening in a glass bowl. Microwave at half power, stirring every 30 seconds or so, until melted and smooth. Brush the crumbs off the Vanilla Wafers, then dip them into the melted chocolate with a fork. Tap off the excess chocolate, then place them on waxed paper. Place an M&M in the middle of each cookie. If your chocolate starts to thicken, just pop it in the microwave for a few seconds, then stir.
- Let the chocolate totally set. Then take a toothpick and use red food coloring to draw the lines on the cookies. Tip: Place a drop of food coloring on a piece of waxed paper, and dip your toothpick in it. Wipe off the tip of the toothpick often, because chocolate starts to build up on it.
- Let the cookies sit till the food coloring is totally dry.
