♥Can't Eat Just One Ghoulish Eyeball♥

Click on photo to print
These scary-good Halloween treats, prepared and eaten on the same fork, begin with a doughnut hole dunked in white chocolate. Little kids and big kids will be wanting more of these cutie pies! This recipe is for a dozen but I've always had more ingredients on hand, especially if I have warm cider or hot cocoa to serve as a chaser. Even the real little guys can make one of these and when they do, you should see the delight in their eyes! The real ones!


2 (11-ounce) bags white chocolate chips
12 doughnut holes
Semisweet chocolate chips
Tube of red decorator frosting

1. To coat a dozen doughnut holes, melt the white chocolate chips over low heat (and keep the chocolate warm while you work). With a fork, spear each doughnut hole and submerge it in the melted chocolate to coat it, then gently tap off any excess.

2. Stick a semisweet chocolate chip with its point cut off onto each doughnut hole, cut end first. Place the forks (handle side down) in a mug and allow the chocolate coating to harden.

3. Use a tube of red decorator frosting to add squiggly veins radiating out from the pupils.

Oh Mimi! There's no place like Blogland!!! At a time when I can get discouraged I can't celebrate this year, like others, I see something like this, and I can still smile ear to ear! LOVE these, and I look forward to trying them! I like that we can EAT them and share them, instead of shoving them away in newspapers and boxes during this time! Dear Son will LOVE them too, so thank you for sharing this fun idea, and for your most recent kind and comforting words to me! ((hugs)) ~tina

I just saw a similar treat in Family Fun magazine. They are too cute (and very spooky!)

The thought of serving my kids an eyeball treat is just too good to pass up. Thanks.

Such ambivalence of desire and repulsion. Great! I'm SO tempted to make some, forget little kids . . .
