  • add   12 ounces white dipping chocolate
  • add   1/2 cup butter
  • add   1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • add   1 tablespoon vanilla
  • add   1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • add   blue food coloring
  • add   2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Cream the butter and peanut butter together.
  2. Beat in the vanilla and sugar.
  3. Chill for 1/2 hour.
  4. Roll into small balls, chill on wax paper for another 1/2 hour.
  5. In a microwave, melt the white dipping chocolate.
  6. Using two spoons dip the eyeballs into the white chocolate.
  7. Let cool on waxed paper until firm. Chilling will speed up the process.
  8. Pour a drop or two of blue food coloring into the remaining melted chocolate.
  9. Make a round iris on the eyeball, and immediatly press a miniature choc. chip in the center for a pupil, doing 5 at at time.
  10. 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.
  11. These are quite tasty--considering how creepy they are.
  12. Note: White dipping chocolate is also known as white bark.
