Butterfinger Eyeballs


If you want a fun Halloween food, you can turn your ordinary Butterfinger chocolates into edible eyeballs. My cute cousins—Julie, Jan, Jo, and Ang—told me about these and I absolutely love them. Not only because they taste great, but there is something about eating food that doesn’t look like food that freaks you out in a fun way. (Yet, I can’t eat anything shaped like a spider. Go figure.) So make them and have some fun . . . say, “I’m going to eat my eyeball now” or “hey, has anyone seen my eyeball?” Happy Halloween!!


1 c creamy Skippy peanut butter (not all-natural)

4 T butter, softened

2 c powdered sugar

1 Butterfinger bar

2 c white chocolate chips

2 T shortening

1 c M&M’s

1 small tube red decorator icing


Beat peanut butter and butter until creamy. Beat in powdered sugar until mixture resembles crumbly cookie dough. Stir in chopped Butterfinger bar. Using scoop, form 1-inch balls. Place on wax paper. Freeze 1 hour. Melt white chocolate chips and shortening in mini crock pot or double boiler and stir until melted and smooth. Remove Butterfinger balls from freezer and immediately dip in chocolate with fork, scraping off excess. Place one M&M on top of each Butterfinger ball. Place on fresh sheet of wax paper. Refrigerate until set. Using red icing, create “bloodshot” marks coming out from the M&M and down the sides of the eyeball. Store in refrigerator.
