These Halloween Bloodshot Eyeballs will be staring at your party guests, just begging to be eaten. But don’t worry – they’re really yummy nut butter balls coated in chocolate!
I swore I wasn’t going to post anything for Halloween until October 1st. BWAH! What was I thinking?
The minute I spotted candy corn at Target a couple weeks ago, I knew it was game over.
But based on how much of my older Halloween stuff I see being shared online, I’d say you’re sort of ready, too. If not, just bookmark these for later.
These Halloween Bloodshot eyeballs are just fun!
These Bloodshot Eyeballs only require a few simple ingredients
- powdered sugar
- creamy nut butter (such as peanut, almond, or sunflower)
- unsalted butter
- white chocolate chips
- brown M&Ms
- red food gel
They might creep everyone out, but still be eaten in a flash. They’re quite rich, so one batch goes a long way!

Halloween Bloodshot Eyes
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup creamy nut butter (such as peanut, almond, or sunflower)
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter , softened
- 10 ounces white chocolate chips
- 24 brown M&Ms
- red food gel
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
- In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, nut butter, and unsalted butter until thoroughly combined. Using a 1-inch sized cookie scoop, shape into balls (dough will be sticky); place on the prepared baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes until firm.
- Place white chocolate in a medium sized microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 45 seconds, stir, then continue microwaving in 10 second intervals until completely smooth.
- Dip balls in the melted chocolate, letting the excess drip off. Place on the baking sheet; immediately press an M&M onto the top of each eyeball. Place back in the freezer for 5 minutes, or until set.
- Add food dye to the melted chocolate remaining in the bowl; mix to combine, starting with a couple drops and adding more to get the color red you want. Transfer to a resealable plastic bag. Snip off a tiny corner and pipe wavy lines downward from the M&Ms.
- Place back in the freezer for 5 more minutes to set completely.
